Succumb or Be Overcome
sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one's hopes or expectations.
Disappointment has the ability to kill us from the inside out.
Hit pause and take that in for a moment. Is it something you’ve ever thought about?
I think of the times that disappointment hasn't even struck, a promise has yet to be broken and yet **in my anticipation** of that broken promise and the resulting disappointment- my emotions run wild and l immediately begin living out of FEAR, living to prevent that fear from becoming true, only to find myself reeling from the very reality I thought I could prevent- feeling discouraged, disappointed and the shame of failing again.
Can anyone relate?
Living on Auto-Pilot
The countless times I've seen this manifest in my life, if only I could count! Prior to beginning my own personal work, life simply happened TO me. It felt as though I was tossed between the throws of waves and crushed in the moments and life events when those waves seemed to collide.
I was running from my past, trying to break free and while having small victories, I was also living a pretty bleak reality with a nearly broken spirit and crushed heart.
Feeling frustrated, bitter, angry, confused, defeated, facing massive disappointments and feelings of betrayal, I felt lost and completely defeated. This lead to me hitting my breaking point and looking for a new way.
Living from a place of survival and bracing for the next wave of storms is exhausting and debilitating.
Have you ever been there? Maybe you're even there now.
Can I assure you, that you're not alone.
“It really is paradoxical but becoming angry or shut down is not an expression of disappointment, but an avoidance of feeling it.” -Dr. Mark Goulston
What I've learned is life on Auto-Pilot is, as a human being, a place of comfort- but it doesn't have to be where I stay.
Creating a New Future
Through doing the work of Transformation, I started to break new ground!
I was living towards where I wanted to GO rather than what I was running FROM.
I replaced Fear and Anxiety with Truth, Confidence and Peace
I felt empowered by being back in the DRIVER SEAT of life rather than being DRIVEN by LIFE.
I began to shatter life long shame cycles and find new possibilities in areas where Fear kept me from seeing any before.
This has been game changing and I openly share my journey with the women that gather each month. It's a practice rather than a destination.
