It is not always obvious that some people in our lives may be intimidating. I have had to deal with intimidation over the years.
When someone is intimidating we allow that person to interfere with our emotional thoughts. When we are intimidated we feel self-conscious and inadequate and that knocks our confidence. Although control is often linked to intimidation, both still need to be understood and recognised as two separate issues.
Feeling intimidated can be a nightmare because we may sometimes allow others to intimidate us without realising that’s what we’re doing. But it is important we determine how our irrational thinking allows others to be intimidating towards us.
We need to respond differently to those who intimidate us, so that we show them we’re not scared of them. Anyone who intimidates is a bully, and we need to show them that we will not be intimidated.
