    I think it’s also interesting to examine the words that wound us. When someone is completely off-base in their assessments of us, we can usually shrug it off. If, however, there is an element of truth to their words, we become hurt and often defensive. It’s not easy to let down the resistance, but beneath it is where healing and growth can occur.

      Yes I agree, your emotional reaction to a comment is a very good indicator to whether it is your stuff to take responsibility for. And you know when you’ve grown and healed, because if someone said those things to you now, you would not react in the same way.
