Now, there are many ways to tackle this, but the following is what came up for my client...
Recognizing their need to ... be right.. -or- need to be seen as smart... -or- to have all the answers... (input triggering behaviors here) ... stems from what their ego tells them will make them loved and accepted in society...It's the way they feel safe and loved. ... or heard ... validated ... accepted...
Now, we can all relate to wanting that? That will make their action more understandable...That gives you a bit more space to then focus on neutralizing your own emotional responses:
"Oh, they are needing to be right, right now. I feel so annoyed. I accept myself as I feel annoyed. I accept them as they need to be right. I accept myself sitting in judgment." (insert supporting energy work here)
By simply saying 'hello' to the triggering action and your response to it, you are coming into greater awareness of yourself. You are helping yourself become more neutral to their action, and your responses to it. We are expanding our unconditional love capacity!
You can go a step further by sending love and forgiveness to them and to yourself as you are witnessing the triggering behavior. "I love you, ____". "I forgive you." Over and over again, until you feel more settled. As you send this love and forgiveness to them, you are loving and forgiving yourself. (this is a form of energy work, you can become aware of any colors that surround this process).
When you find yourself enraged by something...the above may not be sufficient. I highly recommend The Detour Method found in either of these books: "Growing yourself Back Up" or "The Anger Solution", both by John Lee. (Summary below)
There is also a wonderful emotional processing exercise by Teal Swan as well: "How to Express Your Emotion", which you could utilize during that time you've stepped back/withdrawn to do The Detour Method.
