Thinking about numerous times in my life where I deescalated situations with a person that was mentally not well.
Just recently I was speaking to a woman who I met for the first time who initially was all friends and biggin’ me up till we crossed a point in conversation she had pain points from. She started to come in really hot and she was incapable of letting me finish a sentence. It’s wild when you’re not even finished a sentence to present a vantage but don’t reach it. Understanding what I’m engaging in the moment I don’t take it personal. Sometimes people are more willing to let you finish once they know you better but that’s a terrible way to be… That’s why we can’t evolve together.
People aren’t arguing with you. They’re fighting their internal battles and you’re the mirror.
Remember this if you care to communicate better and have better relations. Alas, you’d have to actually be something of a humanist for this to even be your way.
