Inside this episode of The Sense of Self: Personal Development, Linda J Wolff will speak about “The Mirrored Response” and the impulse reflex we use when someone attacks or confronts us verbally, and how we can mirror the same reaction or choose to come from a place of peace and love.
Do your responses mirror that of the same emotion as them?
The thing is, it’s human nature to go into a response when feeling attacked or let down.It’s easy to succumb to anger, denial, rebellion, bargaining, sadness, or acceptance. or even to depression.These types of emotions trigger impulsive behavior. Like going against your self-worth, and short-circuiting your reasoning power.
