Sometimes we just need to talk things out and be done with it, right!
There is a constant nagging in my mind that I know all of us have.
Do I discuss my past and in re-live what has passed? Or do I leave it in my mind's eye and let it marinate?
There is no right or wrong.
A saying I always remember from my childhood is “a problem shared - Is a problem halved".
Don’t question what needs to leave your being. If something is in the forefront of your mind get it up and out. Remember that what you have experienced in the past does not define who you are today unless you allow it.
Share, share, and share some more. Be mindful that you share with the right people in your world. Be prepared that we all need to go through things to make it to the other side. Be gentle on yourself in every way, especially if you are reliving something you find traumatic, no matter how great or small you think the drama is in the mind.
We all come equipped with an array of baggage. Carry on or hold, it's all the same. I believe that our burdens are the same, we simply deal with our world, in our own way. So never put yourself down or at the back of the line, saying that your question doesn’t matter, there will always be others in better and worse situations than ourselves, because we compare.
But rather than compare, just be in your space and share what you need from the humblest space of all.
Your heart. Lean in if you need to. Be a tree for others when required. But never ever put yourself last.
Speak. Share. And you will see that your growth is never absolute.
As I teach daily, I bare my soul with those that meet me on their mats and together we walk the journey required for that exact time. Some days I know it’s hard, and other days I see the lightness in people, as they make their breakthroughs, as do I every time I teach and practice.
