Why do we attack ourselves when something goes wrong?
Illusion of control? You know, 'if I caused it, I can fix it'?
And how did we develop this self inflicted pain strategy?
Did you ever come home from school and tell your parents about a problem… and their first response was: "Well, what did you do to cause it?"
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…
You can think about it like this:
Something happens and we have a reaction - an energy surge. At this point we have a choice about what we do with that energy…
We can direct it out into the world in many different ways or…
We can direct it inward and use ourselves as the target.
Think about the last time something like this happened to you…
What choice did you make about how to direct your energy?
Did your choice work well for you?
Might another choice have been more effective?
