When uncomfortable feelings arise we often have a tendency to either push them away, or to try to do something about them. Each coping strategy has its place of course but usually, the best thing we can do for ourselves is to acknowledge, accept and befriend our feelings, knowing that they will change at some point for we are in constant flux.
Sometimes it is better to do absolutely nothing about it.
I know that your rebellious little army of stubbornly productive thoughts might be ready to go battle right now
but trust me.
You can’t make it go away.
Grief is a slippery kind of a ghost.
It creeps up when you least expect it to, projecting your heart back into past traumas
with very little mercy
It forces you into its presence like a harrowing scene from a bad movie
and of course you want to
The courage to face into our anguish takes practice, after all.
When we stay with ourselves through the numbness, the tears, the anger and the confusion…
When we breathe through the pangs and the twists and the aches in our sorrowed spleen
Slowly but surely;
It is not for the faint hearted of course.
But surrender is where
our true power lies
