Do you find yourself behaving in way that is, well, not quite 'you'? Like getting really mad, crying like a madwoman, throwing a floor-fist-banging trantrum, picking a fight, or otherwise doing something you KNOW is crazy and not you, but you can't seem to help it? What if it wasn't you? If so, ask: "Who am I being now?" We pick up all sorts of stuff from those around us, from our parents, teachers, friends and pretty much everyone. This question reminds you that maybe it really isn't YOU. Then you can ask: "If I were me, who would I be?" If you're a parent, try it with your kids. Are they mad as hell or being traumatic? Ask them gently without heat "Who are you being now?" (Don't be surprised if they reply "YOU!!!!" ) Then you can ask "If you were you, who would you be?" and listen...At the very least it might crinkle their universe and stop the spiral for a second or two. At best, their whole life might change.
