Entanglements with family, friends and colleagues
happen. They usually arise from lack of trust,
disrespecting established boundaries and the
inability or unwillingness to directly communicate
It is not uncommon when in the midst of
entanglement with another to feel there is no way
out. The inner roughhousing between you, your
Monkey Mind and Gremlin can not only be hurtful,
disruptful and damaging but can infiltrate your well
being and the well being of others.
When caught in the web of entanglement remember,
Everything is a teaching.
•Clearly ask yourself, “What needs are going unmet
•What needs are going unmet for the other person?”
•Once unmet needs are established ask, “How will I
meet these needs?”
•Listen with a Growth Mindset and do at least one
action each day until the mind and heart have settled.
