There are always 2 choices.
Connect with the negative or NOT, there is no halfway point. When walking into a difficult situation where I know the personalities involved, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out what the likely outcomes will be….notice I did not say the definite outcomes. I will always hold out just a little hope for creativity and change. But for the most part…when hearts are not open to authentic honest creative new solutions, then it is fairly obvious what the outcomes will be. I cannot take the chance of deliberately connecting to the negativity, scarcity and fear. No matter how much I want it to be different ….it most likely, never will. All of my connections have to be authentic, positive and full.
