Love or Fear?
So what is the alternative? Creating healthy boundaries can be a great way of avoiding the mistrust and panic-inducing sensation of worrying. I find giving myself a quiet moment before engaging in a heated topic can soften my anxiety. Perhaps try opening a space of support rather than bullying others to fulfill your expectations. Expanding the scope of what you think is best for a person is better than imposing judgments. In times where you feel challenged with your practice of Ahimsa, ask yourself, is my reaction coming from a place of love or fear? Hell, the question itself will give you a moment to breathe, which is always a good thing!
