People in my Coping and Healing groups yesterday focused on other people’s behaviors. These other people
- ignore pandemic safety precautions like wearing masks and social distancing,
- act like children,
- violate requested limits and boundaries, and
- were group members’ PARENTS.
When people talk to other people about other people’s behaviors in a support group, they realize they are not alone.
Other people’s behaviors are on my mind this morning, and I’m remembering something somebody said in group last night:
You can’t control other people’s behaviors; you can only control your reactions to them.My Coping and Healing group, April 22, 2021
Can you see other people’s behaviors in any of today’s photos?
Harley, as he gets older, is less reactive to and scared of other people’s behaviors. Maybe he realizes he can only control his own behavior and that’s enough.
When I search YouTube for “other people’s behaviors,” I find this:
I very much appreciate Louise Evans’s behaviors in that 2017 Ted Talk, and I recommend that other people’s behaviors today include watching it whenever you can.
My behavior at the end of every post is to thank everyone whose behaviors help me create this daily blog, including YOU.
