In that moment, you’d Gone Stupid.
Going Stupid is when we’re resisting knowing something, coming up against unseen defenses. Keep in mind, a defense is there to protect us, even if it isn’t appropriate or necessary. It could be a conscious defense, but in these moments it’s more likely to be unconscious.
Most of us have Gone Stupid at some point in time. It’s not bad or wrong to do. In the long run, however, you won’t be able to change something that needs change. I know there are times, when I’m confronted by an issue that feels very uncomfortable, and I’m asked questions about it, I can suddenly feel very confused and can’t make sense of the situation, let alone my reaction to it. I’ve learned to identify it as - I’ve just Gone Stupid.
Here are 3 tips to help:
1. Being aware you’ve Gone Stupid
First off, if you don't know it’s happening, you can’t change it. Here are some possible signs of Going Stupid:
You don’t understand the other person’s questions
You’re feeling very confused by what’s being said
Suddenly you feel very tired
You feel angry or irritated all of a sudden
2. Understand it’s just your resistance to understanding
By connecting the resistance to not being able to understand lessens it, taking away its power. But there’s another important step that follows….
3. Explore where the resistance is coming from
