Sitting with your thoughts January 10 2020, 0 Comments
A friend recently was struggling with
something. It was a consistent struggle and each
time the struggle surfaced she would turn her actions towards something
that was unhealthy. This was a way for her to avoid the internal struggle.
I guess it is/was a distraction.
A way to feel in control when she was feeling out of control.
She is getting help with this and recently we were talking about it.
I asked her what had been the most impactful with this new approach.
She responded with -
"I am having to sit with my thoughts and not do anything with them"
For some reason this made an impact on me.
I think it did because this is not an easy thing to do.
And it is something I usually avoid - I guess most of us do.
It's like the old saying - get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Easier said - harder to do.
