Do you ever respond to a situation in a way that doesn't seem appropriate or helpful? Maybe your response is over-the-top or perhaps you don't have enough of a reaction.

One way to do this is by identifying how you were feeling about yourself in that situation? This question brings the focus back on self and shows you how you are interpreting the situation.

And when you understand the story you're telling yourself, and where that story comes from, you have the power to make a change!
