Let it pass

Sometimes it’s so easy to get wrapped up and embedded in what we think someone is insinuating when none of it is based in reality. It’s so difficult at times to let go of these thoughts that feel like reality. I find myself holding on to them so tightly sometimes that they manifest into reality just from squeezing too hard and thinking too much and analyzing to a fault. Who knows if this makes sense. I need to really practice…well, I think I have in the past year or so…sitting with a feeling and letting it pass instead of picking it apart and dwelling in it and making it bigger than everything else surrounding me. When I feel like something is off or when I hear a tone in someone’s voice that makes me question their feelings toward me I need to just sit. I guess this is just a reminder to myself. Feel. Sit. After a while it will pass and it won’t even really mingle with reality. It will just be gone.

    i know what you mean! i have that struggle often. one thing my mom always taught me to do when i am feeling upset from something someone has said or done is to ask myself “what am i making this mean about me?” normally the upset is rooted in some thought i have about myself and not what anyone else is actually saying or doing. she also always reminds me, “you are never upset for the reasons you think.” i think sitting with the feelings often helps me get to the bottom of what i am really feeling and why i am really upset and it hardly ever involves anyone else but me.

    Sounds like you need to love yourself better. If we assume that people don’t care, that they mean us harm, that they don’t love us, maybe there is a deep feeling of being unlovable, not good enough… on good days, when to sun is shining and all is right with the world we don’t even care if people are a bit nasty. They hurt us by poking at the scabs of wounds already there, if we heal the wounds it doesn’t hurt anymore… if we forgive ourselves we can look at others with more gentle eyes… does that make sense?

    I know your feeling Kyra. I also, think too hard and analyze everything too much. But I’m able catch myself doing it somtimes. At that moment, I question if I want to continue, or just empty it all out.

    Like our bodies daily release of excrements, our minds too, need to empty out the pollution.
