How can I React Differently To People, Places, and Things That Irritate or Trigger Me?

We must look inward and understand that true peace and alignment come from within, not from the external world.

with Tommy Rosen

On this episode of In The Circle, we explore deep into the heart of recovery and self-discovery, guided by a compelling inquiry from Tim—How can I change my response when confronting people, places, and things that trigger frustration and irritability? This question is not just relevant but essential for those of us on the path of recovery, as it touches on the core issue of dealing with our reactions when we no longer hide behind addictive behaviors.

The externally focused mind highlights the common trap of seeking satisfaction from outside sources, which often leads to frustration, anger, and a sense of failure when things don’t align the way that “we” want them to. We must look inward and understand that true peace and alignment come from within, not from the external world. 

This internal focus shifts the emphasis from external validation to internal peace and self-awareness. Recovery is not just about abstaining from addictive behaviors, but also about elevating our consciousness and living a life of presence, kindness, and compassion.

Our effort is to live inside out, not outside in.
