There are countless opportunities to react to events, opinions and activities those around us engage in. Simply scroll down on any on-line discussion forum or controversial Facebook feed to see how quickly humans can disagree with each other and the short distance to truly harmful language pointed towards those with a differing view. Becoming aware of what hooks us is the first step in choosing what garners our attention and response. Maybe the driver honking at me to hurry through the green light doesn’t need to be responded to with my middle finger. Maybe the Facebook status that disagrees with my opinion doesn’t need my input, especially when it involves family or friends. Learn to recognize the hook, sit a few out and avoid the drama.
