“For every action,
there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
This is true in the world of motion, of physics.
It’s part of what makes the universe work.
In relationships, if followed,
equal and opposite reactions can be a killer.
Yet this is often how we operate.
Our reactions to
tones of voice,
don’t often come from a place
of centeredness or reasonableness.
They come from
our confidence or insecurity,
what we “think” the other person really means.
So if, unlike the universe,
you can put some space between the
even just one breath,
you may discover a new way of relating
that isn't just reacting.
