Don’t Sign That Check!

When someone presses your buttons and tries to insult you or your strongly held beliefs, you don’t have to automatically fall into a defensive position and start your own retaliatory offensive onslaught. It’s like the perp has written out a check from your checkbook, but your signature is required for him/her to cash it in.

The trick is to realize the meteoric rise in emotional temperature before your ego, or what Eckhart Tolle calls the pain body, takes over the steering wheel. Alas, even knowing this, I have the hardest time keeping the cap on the pen.
