Re: Dealing With People Who Push Your Buttons

Hi Bratti. Maybe I can help. Need a bit more information though. Do you mean people who upset you with how they behave towards you or others? Or just people who make you angry/ scared etc or you just don't like but you don't know why?

Nobody pushes my buttons. I decide for myself what I will do because nobody else has the right to control me.

Re: Dealing With People Who Push Your Buttons

Find the source ..it probably started in childhood,not sure though.

It's understanding the button pushing,in the first place.

It can be very deep rooted....at least you know your buttons are being pushed...so that has to be a positive start.


For some people,including myself..button pushing can teach you a lot....family are the most difficult to overcome....most of us have wounds that need healing...

It's called "life"

Pauline, I think some people look too deeply into things and blame everything on their past life. They dwell on it forever. You canít go back, you canít change things. ĎĎTis DoneĒ.

Some people are naturally pushy and obnoxious and itís not because of things happening in their life.
Itís about being pig ignorant and thinking they can push everyone to the limit.

l can take so much of it and then l turn on people like that. After that, l avoid them.

Bratti, l hope thatís what your thread was about?

I can see your point Art.....yes,one can dwell on it...but that is what makes us unique.....some can move on much more quickly than others....I look upon that as depth.....we are all just so different.

Yes,some are very pig ignorant....I know I am in certain areas.


I can honestly say..."now".. I welcome the button pushers...those who aren't related to me.....they mean nothing to me...


The ones that mean the world to me are my family.......my son and I,are always pushing each other's buttons......but not in the deep hurtful way.....but we have in the past...it's just finding the source....then talking it through with each other.


Unfortunately not everyone can do that...they sweep it under the carpet...which in itself can be very damaging.



Bratti,my parents pushed my buttons deeply....they were in denial until the day they died...

Deep pain is hard to deal with....I hope you heal....big hug...

If I am well off the beaten track...with this topic...then I apologise.

Keep your buttons close to your chest.
