Who the hell are the Jones’? I know we have all heard the term, “Keeping up with the Jones.” Why we don’t feel good enough if we don’t have what someone else has?
Vulnerability is about the shadow side of our feelings.
The ones that we shove so deeply inside of ourselves so that there is no trace of them on the exterior.
I get it, I used to build a wall, and no one knew how I was eating myself alive I was on the inside.
Letting the wall down is scary and you can benefit from it.
I was so worried about looking good that I hid myself from the world. My family, friends and associates all thought that I was a machine. I never shared with them how I felt. Therefore, they always thought I never needed them.
We’ve all been there. Challenged with the embracing the dark side of being human. We don’t want to feel the excruciating pain of loneliness, sadness or depression.
We certainly don’t want to deal with other people and have them pity us when we feel so weak.
Breathing is such a gentle way of being. You’re always present. You can’t take a breath ahead, and you can’t retake a breath you’ve already taken.
I believe our purpose in life is to love others right where they are, without conditions and without reservation.
It’s one thing to experience fear but it’s a whole new level of fear when a person in authority tells you that what’s going on can be life threatening.
The world is not out to get you. When thoughts become overwhelming it’s time to question their validity.
