Porcupine

I don't know if it has happened to you, but I know it has happened to me. Someone does or says something and totally irrationally you bark back a response and go into defend mode like a Porcupine sticking up its quills.

Why does that happen? The reason it happens is because somehow what has been done or said triggers a very painful memory and our response is to find some violent way to protect ourselves. This is because whatever pain we are carrying has not fully healed and we receive the message as a dagger heading for our wound to inflict further damage.

How should we respond to people when their quills go up? With love, compassion, empathy and some more love. Think of love like a blanket and as we throw it over the porcupine we are able to approach and then wrap our arms around it to assure it that our intentions are good.

Love does cover a multitude of sins and conquers all our fears.
