You chose your family. Hmmm...was Thanksgiving a joyful experience or did family dysfunction surface? I know some of us think "What was I thinking when I chose to be in THIS family?" When you were with your familiies Thursday were there things said or actions that were hurtful, personal? Perhaps a negative comment or "jab" at something?
So keeping with No One Is To Blame For How You Feel, how did you feel? Were you or are you going to take the gift (the lesson) given to you, thank (truly) who provided the lesson, look at what was activated, and truly allow yourself to be with the feelings you are feeling?
Identifying and acknowledging how something occurs for you, allows you to re-connect to past situations that created these same feelings. "Oh, that triggered a feeling of disrespect and anger." The person who activated this FOR you (although it may been unconscious) did so out of deep love for you. Yep..you read that correctly.
Emotional harm and trauma can now be brought to the surface to be healed and released. You are no longer a child. You are not a victim unless you choose to be. Be thankful and celebrate these activations at every moment! Need support in this growth? Life/Spiritual Advisement are a call away.
