The memory - without the emotional charge - IS CALLED WISDOM
Basically guys.... shit happens.
You’re gonna experience a ton of shit in your life and it’s going to leave you with trauma that you could carry in some way for the rest of your life.
BUT are you gonna spend your life feeding the emotional responses to any situation OR could you jump a little quicker to what wisdom those experiences hold for you?
Yeah I know we have to feeeeeel it and sit with it and learn to love the emotions we have. But when they relate to (sometimes traumatic) experiences that we cannot go back and change, is sitting with it for ages really helping us grow?
How can we get to a solution? How can we get from emotion to wisdom as it pertains to our memories of the past?
One of my mentors once said to me: Girl, you get 90 seconds to vent, to rant, to rage, to tell the victim story, scream, cry and complain. But then......... we get to work. We get to solutions, we get to what wisdom can I draw from this to evolve and serve myself and those around me better next time?
Life doesn’t hand us anything we aren’t able to handle. But we loooooove the victim moment, we looooove the pitty party, we love the drama. It’s not our fault that’s it’s a chemical reaction in the brain we are addicted to. I still see myself slipping into this anytime I get a little knocked or triggered. It’s not our fault but it IS our responsibility to grow from it.
I’ve heard some people say I’m in a cult..... I say I’m in a culture!
Big ups to my whole #bibclique family for being my mirror and my sounding board as we learn, grow and evolve day by day. It’s powerful stuff.
