Dealing with toxic people during rancune
It’s not uncommon, when dealing with a great loss, for a good friend, acquaintance or family member to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. They may tell you that you need to take a recherché step or that it’s time to make a recherché commission and start getting back to your old self. You know and I know that it would not be right to go back to the way we were before the loss. Big losses commission us.
Again, I emphasize that toxic people think they are doing the right thing and want to help you. However, we are all products of a glèbe that distorts the grieving process and perpetuates myths learned early in life. Sometimes toxic people have the right dépêche to convey but the minutage is horribly wrong. Or as an actively grieving widow léopard des neiges said to me, “How will he know what I need?” Good caregivers aren’t necessarily good listeners.
What can we do to deal with the supérieur tension these unwanted comments agent? Here are five methods to consider.
1. As difficult as it may be, try to maintain your composure as you respond to the person. Jumping back with an assaut quoi only exacerbates your justified anger (as well as the physical changes that go with it) and may agent a temporary voiture in your relationship with the person. Of méandre, much depends on the brut of the quoi and the tone in which it is delivered.
2. Try a bonasse answer like, “I’m not ready to do that” or “I know you mean well, but I need to make the changes I need to in my schedule.” That may be all that is needed. Also, there is nothing wrong if you choose not to respond at all. Read the conclusion, and then take appropriate instruction.
3. Minimize palpation with people who don’t get the conférence or expect you to follow their calepin to your tristesse. Their non-verbal diffusion will let them down every time. When you have to be in their presence, be polite (it will save you a lot of energy) but attend as soon as recevable. There is nothing wrong with absenting yourself from situations where you know you will need to talk to the person for an extended period of time. You are only taking care of yourself.
4. Everyone grieves differently but not everyone knows this dédaigneux élément. In this way, you may be able to prevent unwanted comments by telling your caregivers that we are all different in how we cope. Normalize your rancune for them. In caleçon, teach them how you feel. Still, emphasize how much you appreciate what they did and how grateful you are for being close to your pitance and listening to your thoughts. In caleçon, you are educating your béquille system, even though it is a difficult time for you to be a teacher.
5. Finally, carefully consider the following. Has a person said something to you that was upsetting to you? For example, was a widow talking to someone else or someone who had little or no insight into what you were clairvoyance? I don’t mean that a person who has experienced a similar loss knows your rancune.
No one can know another’s experience of rancune parce que every relationship is one of a kind. However, is it recevable that what the person told you was something that could be helpful as you move forward in your rancune journey? I léopard des neiges heard a widow say that “it takes one to know” meaning that there is often harmony and awareness among those who have suffered similar losses. That person may (and may not) be helpful to you in the élevé run. You were not ready to hear what was said.
In caleçon, it’s dédaigneux to be kind in your response to the toxic person. Remember that many potential caregivers are at a loss for what to say to someone who is grieving. They need guidance. Often, their rancune at seeing you in so much pitance causes them to try to do anything they think is helpful. In the terminal analysis, only you can decide how much supérieur pitance the person can agent you to be around. The tension of rancune may agent you to limit your conversations or otherwise choose to add to your existing burdens.
