A very powerful place to inquire into your beliefs is around someone else's lack of response to your requests, or your communication. Listen to find out what you might be thinking that really hurts, when someone is silent.
The moment you have someone disturbing in your experience (even in memories) you may notice the urge to fly or fight. What if you connected more closely to them, without fighting, without running away? What would that be like?
Many people think: I can't handle being in the presence of someone who is dying, hurting, suffering, or who has had terrible trauma or experienced a horrible life event.
But what if you didn't need to know anything, or do anything? Are you sure you aren't enough? Do you really have to know what to say, or how to be?
Try staying, without expectations. I noticed I could handle it....and you can too.
If you didn't believe your stories about not being enough, about sadness, anger, fear or loneliness...who would you be? What would that feel like? Try this exercise. It may seem small, but it can change your life.
