Many of us are still living in our childhood even if we’re not aware of it. It’s the reason we get easily overwhelmed, fall prey to others and external circumstances, and believe the world is scary. We learned these lessons early.
Therapy can help break these ingrained beliefs. Mindfulness and meditation can alert us when we’re getting reeled in by our past. Is what we’re feeling a realistic response to this moment or is it a reaction triggered from something that already happened?
We have the power to bring intention to every moment and situation. We can decide what kind of day we want to have or even what type of spring vacation we want to plan. Taking control over what we can helps to remind us that we’re not helpless children anymore.
