How do you get someone to stop bothering you?

If you dream of peace in some relationship, it will come. How you view a situation begins inside yourself with your thoughts.  It may be a shocker, but you choose for someone to bother or intimidate you.  For some reason, you sense this would offer valuable lessons. 

What if you decided a troublesome person was frightened and hiding who he really is? It could be a boss, a parent, an in-law, a rival, stranger, whomever.  What does this perspective reveal about your assumptions? Life experience is a worthy teacher.

You may have the urge to laugh to yourself if the source of frustration seems like a confident aggressor or, has the physique of a football player. Yet, appearances are deceiving and do not portray the truth. You must look beyond them to what you hide.

Assumptions are grounded in your own belief that a person posseses something that he does not, that is, power over you.  This presumption is incorrect.  The truth can only be discovered within yourself, though finding courage to embrace life. 

No amount of book learning or impatience will expedite the process. Insight may expand you, but it does not explore practical sides of life.  Some people even believe no study is necessary to realize you shake yourself up in order to remind yourself of the meaning and experience of peace. Feeling bothered is recognizing what is extraneous and letting go.

Hmmm...I think I can really make use of this post today in several situations. Thanks for the reminder ;)

It is interesting as good as we think we get sometimes at understanding we are in control of our thoughts and practice on various so called "negative" situations" - there always come new ones to "shake us up".

And although the normal instinct may be to resist them, the natural instinct should be to embrace them, as they truly are our best teachers and growth providers.

Evita, it is a conditioned reflex to turn away from or avoid sources discomfort. This could be people or situations. Human beings mistakenly assume avoiding the source of the issue is desirable. People forget that giving and receiving different kinds of energy is a very healthy thing. Every belief you nurture will shake you up to remind you why you exist.
