Thanks for your response, Jeff!

Actually, I'm just always on guard with this person. After being around this person, if I have any anxiety or stress at all, I can use the CT. But I'm still weary. I'm not neutral or unaffected because I'm just waiting for the next problem.

Does that make sense?

I find myself needing to use the CT every time I'm around this person! Yes, I get that it's in MY mind. My mind is ready to interpret things in a negative whenever we are in the same room together! And guess what? I'm RIGHT! I always get offended!
