Self Practice Supports Us!
I need space to be, to just be, where I am not receiving messages from others telling me that I’m wrong about what I feel, or wrong about what I need, or wrong about what I know about myself, or just generally wrong.
It is difficult enough to clear the internal messages on that channel, without reinforcement of those destructive messages from those around us.
It is ok to deliberately look for those safe spaces and to deliberately avoid places and people who give us invalidating messages.
This is not about denying my/our need for continued insight, growth and improvement. It’s about creating the space that makes those improvements possible.
