I had originally written a previous post with this same title, but I decided to delete it because it was filled with hatred and an emotional attachment to the past. I mean, after I wrote the post, I thought that I felt better, but after some time passed, I felt a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. I knew it was senseless of me to be holding on to that kind of pain. I mean, what happened already happened, and I’m doing just fine…so why complain? Right now I’m reading Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now, and it is a great read. Very insightful. I will share a passage with you guys that caused me to think a little deeper about my anger.
Eckhart writes: “They (women) are wrong if they derive a sense of self from this fact and thereby keep themselves imprisoned in a collective victim identity. If a woman is still holding on to anger and resentment, or condemnation, she is holding on to her pain-body. This may give her a comforting sense of identity, of solidarity with other women, but it is keeping her in bondage to the past and blocking full access to her essence and true power.”
That’s all for today folks! Look out for my next post on Wednesday.
