There is groundbreaking research into the power of community. We become like the people we surround ourselves with. But it’s even spookier than that. It’s not only the people we’re in direct contact with who influence our behavior. The research shows that we are even affected by our friends’ friends' friends.
As our stress levels increase or as we are chronically in a stressful (fight-or-flight) state our mind's ability to be easily triggered and reactive increases. We may say and think things that we normally wouldn't say or think if we were in a calmer state. Actively practicing stress management can allow us to be a "better" version of ourselves when dealing with others.
