I don’t think we realize how much we shame ourselves and each other… and it’s killing us.

Today’s Burst of Energie — YouTube video here — is a near-and-dear one… about a topic that is insidious and pervasive. And we are given the opportunity at this time with the current energies to do something about it.

This is shaming yourself or another:

  • “don’t be such a baby”
  • “you’re kidding me, right?”
  • (eye roll)
  • “this behavior is beneath you”
  • “I expected more of you than this”

Understand that any of these phrases MAY be used and not necessarily be rooted in Inner Critic and Fear… the phrases themselves are not harmful as much as what is NOT being said.

What is not being said?

  • “I see you hurting. Before we unpack this any further, may I give you a hug?”
  • “I hear what you’re saying, that you’re upset and scared… and I honor you and hold space for you while you experience this.”
  • “Your actions surprise me and I am curious as to whether you’d feel comfortable talking about the situation with me… I promise to breathe with you, allow you time to feel and unpack, and to not try to ‘fix’ anything.”
  • “I’m here for you.”

Let us practice deep self-compassion so that we don’t hurt others who are already hurting enough.

Here for you and cheering you on!
