"Live and let Live."

Mood: Other
Date: Oct. 02, 2007



I wonder if I will ever work through the fears that keep me distanced from the people in my life. Some day’s my family and friends seem strange to me. I see that they are there but I feel very little inside about them. Disassociation formed a barrier that protected me when my body was being sexually abused. Now disassociation hinders me from feeling the presence of those around me.

Today I will be gentle with myself and experience today as it is and not how I want it to be. I will make plans for the future but I will not plan the results. Today I will work on opening up to the possibility of positive change so that I may heal.


“The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes”.
~ Pema Chodron
