Anjali - A Lesson in Managing Emotions

So there was this conversation today. I was mock angry with Anjali.

'You can't scold me Nanna,' she said mockingly.

'Of course I can,' I said, my fighting spirit up, feeling challenged.

'Ok, you can scold,' she said, backing down immediately. 'But it will be nice if you don't scold.'

I immediately lost that charge I had. What can I do in this situation? So I told Anjali that I found her method terrific to disarm people who are getting their hackles up for no reason. If you challenge them, they will rise up to fight. But if you take away the resistance and give them back their power, they will also withdraw.

Brilliant. Now to practice it. Thanks Anjali.
