Score your an­swers

In the Moment - - Wellbeing -

Mostly As:

You like to fight for jus­tice and you’re tempted to seek vengeance when­ever some­one has wronged you. You can hold a solid grudge too. This lack of com­pro­mise could be af­fect­ing your well­be­ing and the con­tempt is cer­tainly cost­ing you your peace. In tough times, re­mind your­self that by choos­ing to for­give some­one else, you’re cre­at­ing more in­ner peace for your­self. Try us­ing guided kind­ness med­i­ta­tions to work on ac­cept­ing and lov­ing your­self, as well as oth­ers in your life, even those you strug­gle with the most.

Mostly Bs:

When you be­lieve you’ve been treated un­fairly, you’re able to sit with the emo­tions rather than es­ca­late a sit­u­a­tion and be­come re­ac­tive.

You of­ten make the wise choice to di­gest what’s go­ing on and learn what you can from the ex­pe­ri­ence as you for­give, as op­posed to feel­ing dis­grun­tled and dwelling on it. For­give­ness is tough, and just say­ing the words isn’t enough. It’s a verb that re­quires ac­tion. Con­tinue to re­lease neg­a­tiv­ity and prac­tice kind­ness to­wards your­self, and oth­ers, as you move through the process of for­giv­ing.

Mostly Cs:

It’s not in your na­ture to har­bour a grudge and you be­lieve in grant­ing sec­ond chances. But at times this level of for­give­ness can leave you dis­ad­van­taged. Do you ever speak up if some­one wrongs you, or if you’re hurt? By not shar­ing how you feel, oth­ers won't know the im­pact of their ac­tions, and you risk con­don­ing bad be­hav­iour – a neg­a­tive cy­cle that will con­tinue un­til you speak up. For­giv­ing takes strength, so be coura­geous as you calmly and com­pas­sion­ately ad­dress what is, and what isn’t, ok.
