Have you ever been in the presence of someone who intimidates you?
They don’t have to be verbally aggressive towards you. They don’t have to be physically aggressive towards you. They don’t even have to be your stereotype of someone who is big and has severaly tats all over their arms. They don’t have a big booming voice.
It’s more in the stuff that’s unsaid. Or the small things they notice. And just their presence.
They scare the shit out of you…
…even without doing anything.
I had an encounter with such a person today and still feeling this level of anxiety and feeling of discomfort in my chest as a result. I am just going to have to be mindful of this feeling and accept the thoughts that come with it.
And hopefully, it will get better.
Until next time,
