I have from time to time in my life felt stripped of protection, people are able to attack me and I have had no defence. No way to let their mean comments just go by, the comments find their way straight in to my heart, and the pain stays.
I had a few of those moments recently, but the difference is that I am different. I have found my inner core. Sure, I fell right in that dark hole of feeling trapped but rather fast I realized that no one can make me feel like this but me. I can choose and that made me feel liberated, much like a teenager flipping someone off. And that felt good!
Perhaps you don't think it's OK, but I think the Gurus is boosting my spirit, they didn't take any crap what ever the cost (OK, I admit, to my limited knowledge). I feel more grounded in myself and I will not just stand by as some tries to stomp all over me or someone else. Unfortunately for my, I have always been better at standing up for someone else then for myself, until now perhaps.
I think my new found strength comes from trust, me trusting that I will be taken care of. I will always been in warm embrace.
Strength and blessings to you all,
