So I’m trying to be an “emotional adult” over the following situation, but I’m not sure I’m doing a great job of it! =)
So a situation occurred that triggered an inordinate reaction (on my part), and I’m having difficulty putting it into the model. Someone I recently connected with on Facebook through my business just messaged me to ask him to see if I’d purchase these special glasses for him that are only sold in NYC (where I live). It is a strange “ask” as we’ve only just met, but I think it plays into a bigger underlying belief system I have about the fact that I come across as someone who will roll out the red carpet and go out of my way for everyone and their mother. =)
So here’s the model:
C- “so and so” messaged me to ask if I’d buy him these special snapchat glasses as I’m the only person he knows in New York and is hoping I’ll do it.
T-He thinks I’ll just roll over, drop everything and go get him these glasses just because? He must think I do everything everyone asks of me. What makes me come across like that?
F-anger. resentment. (I guess a little curiousity too)
A-angrily type this message into “Ask Brooke” to get to the heart of it! =)
R- stew in my own anger until I can mentally sort out the cause
C- “so and so” messaged me to ask if I’d buy him these special snapchat glasses as I’m the only person he knows in New York and is hoping I’ll do it
T-People feel comfortable connecting with me (but I still have those angry, unintentional thoughts too. what would I do in this sitch)
Brooke, I feel like my models must be off, and aren’t accounting for the fact that maybe this is a deeper issue on my part. Can you help?
Thank you, and thanks for ALL you do!!!!
