I've realized that whenever I feel my buttons are being pushed it is because there are loose threads behind them. The wayward threads often come from a particular spool called Ego.
Rather than being resentful, insulted or demeaned, I feel grateful to the button pusher for unconsciously leading me to look inward and reflect on the reason for my feelings. Realizing that my feelings arise from my own insecurities and weaknesses, I'm able to forgive, accept and love both myself and my "tormentor."
Wisdom can be found even from the most unlikely sources and the most annoying situations. All it takes is to see with the light within us.
