I don't like that.
I'd like to finish my thought
When you (action) I felt (emotion)
I would like some space.
Clear, direct, self-responsible and open-hearted communication has been up for me in the last couple weeks.
I’ve needed to make communications that felt very uncomfortable but without them I would have felt even more discomfort
I’m proud of myself because I really had no idea how to do this some years ago.
In the past when it came to speaking my truth these were what I thought my options were:
say nothing at all
say only part of the truth
say everything with anger and blame
say everything with a “please feel sorry for me” angle
I have a lot of compassion for myself and the way I did it back then.
I didn’t have some important things I have now.
These things being:
Increased responsibility for myself and my experience
These are the fruits of engaging with the challenging work of looking at yourself and committing to healing what hurts or is holding you back inside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m curious which one of these statements is easiest or difficult for you...comment below. I’d love to learn more about you!⠀
