Feeling Right About Being Wronged


Feeling Right About Being Wronged

The habit of fighting comes naturally to many of us. And after years of conditioning, our nervous systems can literally become addicted to conflict, where the lack of it feels foreign or unsettling.

We think that if we’re constantly worried or on high alert, then the things we’re worried about are less likely to happen. But it’s often the opposite, and our defensive posturing puts us in a chronic state of fear and anxiety and stress, attracting exactly that which we resist.

In this opening from one of our recent Vital Life Project video calls, I share some personal anecdotes around the habit of fighting and conflict.

My hope is that my experience of “feeling right about being wronged” serves as a wake up call to the areas of your life that may be in need of transformation.

Can we switch to pursuing pleasure rather than avoiding pain? And can we move beyond the lower hierarchical needs of feeling virtuous, safe, or heard (often at the expense of self or another)… to higher (lighter) states of harmony, joy, and ease?
