One of the reasons the sale of the first house we were shopping fell through was that the seller was extremely reactive. I knew this right away when I found myself sitting on the tarmac at the airport, ready to fly home. I was frantically texting him, trying to talk him off a ledge.
This was even more remarkable in that I don’t really know how to text. It’s not something I do; I’m certainly not good at it. Just think about my fat, illiterate mom-fingers trying to make a point before the plane took off. Not fun!
I had to do this about once a week over the six or seven weeks. If you work in real estate, you know what I mean. I kept telling myself to stay calm and live the role, even though I didn’t like the role. It’s not like I’ve never overreacted myself. I know what it looks like.
Long story short, he finally threw his last fit. I doubt he knew it was his last fit. But I knew it was his last fit because this time he was on speakerphone. My husband was there to hear him and quickly signalled to me – CUT!
I don’t know why so many adults act like babies. It may be that we let children act like babies, when they are supposed to be maturing. Then they turn into teenage babies and so forth.
I wrote about this in my book – my mother used to tell me not to have a “conniption fit”. Boy was that good advice.
Do you notice yourself being less reactive over the last couple weeks with Mars in Taurus? Do you feel relieved by any chance?
