Now I know what to DO when I feel emotions rising and my flight response flaring. I’m still practicing, but each time I try it, something shifts inside and I am more and more able to CHOOSE my response and more quickly feel peaceful in many situations.
I helped a friend today get an experience of that knot of frustration in her chest “just melt”. I remember one of my first times realizing that I could change my perception of others by DOING something besides stuffing my feelings, disregarding my view, or lying to myself that I didn’t feel how I felt or think what I thought.
