Finger-Art-Couple-Fighting

Yesterday I was distressed by a conflict with someone. I asked myself, “Why did this happen?”

My mind wanted to find something wrong with this person so I could see why they were the culprit. I got all revved up with righteousness.

Later, in a call with a friend, they suggested I look inside for the cause.

Didn’t take long for me to see that, yep, I invited this and through my reactions kept it going. I wanted the approval of the other person and my need created the whole experience.

I forget the simplest path to understanding what’s happening in my external world is to look inside. Not always a comfortable route and always where the truth lies.
