Do you know that space?
The one - no matter how small - that we have before we make a decision, say a word or take action?
Well let me tell you, sometimes I feel like that space is SUPER small and almost non-existent... more reactivity that response. —>> hello being human. 🏼 “In that space is our power to choose our response and in our response lies growth and our freedom.” The past weeks gone, I was emotionally arrested, released, arrested AGAIN to be taken to court, thrown in jail and all for one feeling to break me outta there.
Obviously when we’re emotionally flooded and/or experiencing any type of emotional pain it can be challenging to remain conscious and choose life-affirming words/ behaviours and actions.
This is the power of our conditioned coping mechanisms.
These patterns, both emotional and behavioural have been adopted to protect us from pain.
Remember that It is okay not to forgive someone or something BUT also accept that it is okay to offer chances over time to understand and differentiate pain and progression.
No matter the situation, it will always be a choice whether you want to fight for something, but in this comes a huge responsibility and what is now, is done.
However what we do need to do is extend some compassion our way, slow down so that we may feel as we were meant to.
Our emotions and our past matter- big time.
Why? Because what you disown, owns you.
So, hit the pause button and let the truth rise to the surface - with Grace and maybe even a little smile.
