Yesterday a student shared that because she doesn’t always stand up for herself, that energy builds and then she explodes. Energy WILL be expressed at some point. If we do not express it at the moment, it festers and then will often come out in a nasty fashion. Like a boil that is festering. Nasty.
It’s a good awareness to realize that this is what is happening! Now the GROWTH is to speak up more quickly, to set boundaries, to know that you have the right and the value to express your own thoughts, feelings,needs and opinions.
This is easier said than done but can be accomplished!
Some things to explore:
1. Why do you think that other people have a right to express themselves and you do not?
2. Why are other people’s thoughts, feeling, desires and opinions more important than yours?
3. What do you feel you will lose if you stand up for yourself/express yourself?
These are some very important questions. If you see yourself in these, I would suggest you do some careful reflection and journaling to begin unraveling these patterns!
