SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 269: Resist, then Allow


It usually takes me a moment, or many, to realize I am resisting my feelings. I don’t want to feel angry, or ashamed, or jealous, or small, or too much, because I have a story (an old, old story) that I shouldn’t feel these things – that somehow, I would be a better person if I didn’t feel these things. I know that’s bullshit, and it’s a long process (or it seems to be) to let go of that story. Once I realize I’m resisting my feelings, then I am able to consciously allow them to be there, if I choose. Giving them a voice is the first step for me. Usually just telling someone how I feel will allow most of the feeling to dissipate. It’s like magic.

Resist, then allow.
Resist, then allow.
