What is it we run away from when something bad happens?
Why do others push us to get back on that horse we just fell off of - immediately?
Think about this one:
How many times have you seen a recently divorced person hook up with a close to exact replica of his ex?
Our task is to step back from the 'accident' and learn from it!
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun
How do we find that sweet spot - the balance between running from our experiences or wallowing in them?
Try this: After a knock-out punch ask yourself these questions:
What's the take away from this experience?
What have I learned about myself and who I am?
What in this experience makes me stronger (not tougher, stronger!)?
Is there a way this can increase my ability to feel compassion?
If the answer to this last question is 'no' it probably means that your inner Bully is on the rampage - putting you through torment.
To check if your Bully is present look for these statements:
"Look what you did!
"How could you!"
"That was really stupid!"
To release this exaggerate that voice until you laugh or
Have a dialog between your Bully and your Inner Best Friend - the one who has not only your back, but also your best interest!
Now, step back and breathe.
You are in a powerful process of learning!
