When Someone Says Something That Gets Under Your Skin

When Someone Says Something That Gets Under Your Skin

Some words or small collections of them can lift you up for minutes, hours or sometimes even days.

Other words can poke and stab and quickly tear you down.

These are the words that really get under your skin and hurt.

What can you do when that happens?

Well, let me share what has worked for me and my clients.

Let it out.

The first thing I often do after I notice that something did actually get under my skin is to talk it over with someone close to me. Having that trusted soundboard is such a value!

By just letting it out and venting you can release a lot of inner tension and the two of you can find a more helpful and healthier perspective on what has gotten under your skin.

Ask yourself: is the person having a bad day or year?

When my self-esteem was lower than it is today then I used to think that pretty much all the negative things people said to me was in some way my fault.

However, that is most often not the case. People can verbally attack you or nag or criticize harshly because they may have had an awful day or week. Or simply because they do not like their lives very much at all.

So don’t think this is all about you. There are two of you in this situation.

My wish for you is that you continue.
Continue to be who and how you are.
To astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.

-- Maya Angelou

Ask yourself: could there be something here that could help me?

This question is not always fun to ask yourself. Plus it doesn’t always lead anywhere at all. Though after you have calmed down by using the steps above it can be helpful.

Especially if this is the fifth or tenth time you have heard the same thing from people. Then there might be something here you would like to work on and something valuable in the long run.

So at least take a minute or two to think about it.

When Someone Says Something That Gets Under Your Skin

Take care and have a self-kind Sunday!

Share with me what your thoughts on this are. What are you willing to do, TODAY< to step up and stand in your greatness?
