NOT Telling Someone that They’re Shut Down

Published by Greg Heffron on

Telling someone that they’re in the Red Light (of communication shut down) is pretty much proof that we too have fallen into the Red Light. When you’re about to tell someone this,a little voice in your mind could wake you up. Try to remember the slogan: When the Light is Red, Stop. Time to gain some breathing room — literally, or just inside yourself. Let the situation cool before actively engaging. Wait for The Green Light. If it takes a minute, or a year, or a lifetime, it will eventually show itself. If we can cultivate our connection to our own Green Light, it’s more likely we’ll be ready when that moment comes.
