The last time I was at the dojo it was just sensei and I again. I was feeling quite stresses due to a week of bad luck and bad Karma. My truck broke down and cost me a wack of money, and was haveing problems with a person who just can't seem to leave me alone. The stress showed up in my technique and training as an uncontrolable tensness in my shoulders.
I try to make part of my training the philosophical where deflecting abusive verbal energy is part of it. You know! Sticks and stones. But how does one deal with it when it becomes so persistent that I'm constantly ignoring and deflecting verbal abuses and accusations.
The training session did help to destress me some what, but I'm still dreading my next meeting with this person. No telling what ()'ll come up with next. I wish I knew what it was that started it in the first place. Oh well just keep my mouth shut unless I have to open it, and deflect and redirect the rest. Maybe ()'ll get bored and give up and finally leave me alone.
