Psychological resistance is like an invisible wall that stands between who we are and who we want to become.
I want to be open to receiving more love.
We resist because we fear. We construct our own invisible walls of impossibility. We do this in all aspects of our lives, but the wall that can be the biggest barrier to our growth is the one we put between us and our relationships.
We need each other to survive.
Whatever you call the wall, the emotional armor, the fence and property line that separate our thoughts and feelings from those of other people. Sometimes these boundaries keep us locked in, stunted and unable to grow.
I’m taking down my wall, brick by brick. It starts with me.
No more interrupting what others have to say or predicting what might happen. No looking for fault lines in their character, or scanning for clues for what might hurt me in the future.
No scanning for threats and no rushing to move things along.
Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
I let go of unmet expectations and realize that a bit of stress is another way of showing I care.
I am not going to even try to control the conversation and I will remember it’s not only my time, it’s your time. It’s this moment.
Opening to love.
I am removing what I thought was protecting my heart from being broken one more time. So the love can flow through.
I won’t interrupt. I will stop ending moments before they have had a chance to begin.
I remain curious, looking for signs of love. Clues along the way.
Expecting more love from all.
