Don’t let your parent hijack your energy. What you focus on is where your energy goes. According to the Law of Attraction, what we focus on is what we get. An angry energy only attracts more situations to make you angry. And where does the anger lie? Within you! It’s a lose-lose situation.
Contain your energy within you.
Don’t let it get to the anger point. First thing in the morning, when I hear that walker rolling into the kitchen, all my energy wants to turn to anger and it floods my body and all my focus goes to mom and I can be left sitting there empty and depleted in about two seconds.
As soon as I feel that energy start to drain I have to turn all the focus on me, not her. It takes practice. But we get many opportunities to practice, don’t we.
Put up boundaries, walls, moats, zip up, whatever visualization works for you to stop the energy drain. Just remember the Law of Attraction. First you have to be the energy, and then the matched energy comes. This is physics. This is how the universe operates. Try it.
