the anti-inflammatory attitude

it’s so easy & feels so sweet
to antagonize & feel indignant & react sullenly back at
(unpleasant) people

fuck it, anybody can do it
and in a passive aggressive, silent way almost everybody does it

try instead to appreciate & understand them
be curious about their unmet needs
and how & why they address it the way they address it
feel them

listen,
learn about your lower, judgmental self through them

focus,
breathe out long and deep throughout

allow, be with whatever arises

witness their reactions
and own yours

ripple with it

respect your triggers
