Hot Button in the Middle of my Face


Sometimes, when a hot button is triggered, it’s in the middle of my face but I don’t see it.

Screen 1

When somebody tries to make me notice, it’s upsetting.

Screen 2

The truth is that If I wasn’t already triggered before, I wouldn’t react to this attempt of support.

When I’m self-deluded about a hot button, I can sometimes become an exaggeration of myself, like my own caricature… a clown.

Screen 3

If I’m able to laugh at myself, I say  “Bravo!” It’s true Personal Mastery!!!

Screen 4

Most of the time, I’m not able.

But if I feel persistently shut down or ready to punch somebody, I know that I need a reflective time.

Screen 5

Evolved people know how to recognize their inner clown, deal with their own button and let it go.

I’m not there yet. But what I know, is that after being committed*, the most indispensable step to overcome my hot buttons is to become self-aware.

    FABULOUS! C’est geniale! I feel like I have that red button on my face, on my ears, in the splotches on my neck – you are right when you can push it a make yourself laugh, it reminds us that this life just can’t be taken so seriously all the time!
    BRAVO! Love
