I’m trusting myself to be where I am

“I am understanding more and more what keeps me stuck….I’m trusting myself to be where I am. I’m learning to be more present in my body and on earth…I’m learning to let go, which can feel like giving up safety even when I know the habits are no longer serving me…I am being compassionate for myself and having patience for where I really am.

I am looking at things like my desire for completion, the sense of accomplishment, which I also crave in writing. This helps me see that I really am working against deep, lifelong patterns and quiets the voice that tries to say, “What is the problem? Why can’t you just let me go and get on with it.” My new response is, “We are getting on with it.” – Debora’s student who wishes to remain anonymous
