You might be keeping it together day in and day out. Swallowing your sorrow, pushing through any struggles, but what happens when you can’t push it down any longer?
It spills out.
The hurt. The anger. The pain. The frustration. The everything. It has to go somewhere.
If you’re like me, it usually comes out in the form of a tantrum, tears, and sometimes some yelling.
But how can we stop this?
Is it even possible to diffuse the anger before it hurts someone else?
Or, even better, is it possible to nurture the hurt before it turns into anger?
That’s all anger usually is – unacknowledged grief or hurt.
It builds up, festers a little bit, scabs over in some places, keeps growing, keeps gnawing at you until it’s easier to mask it with anger.
And when that anger is left unchecked, it spills out.
It hurts the ones we love.
And their hurts turn into anger.
It’s a big cycle. Over and over and over.
Thanks to memes, some phrases lose their edge, but the first time I heard “hurt people hurt people”, I was blown away.
I could see how that happened to me.
I could see how I did it to other people.
I knew something had to change.
I decided I would be a calmer person, I would heal my hurts.
And you know what?
I failed. Over and over and over again.
And that only made me hurt more, and made my anger grow.
But then I decided to keep with it.
I saw glimmers of hope.
I developed techniques for changing that anger into my greatest power.
I leaned into it and chose vulnerability.
It’s AWKWARD to say to someone “hey, that hurt me”.
But it gets a little bit less awkward each time.
And it helps the people around you learn to speak up.
If hurt people hurt people, I’m 100% confident healing people heal people <3
It’s definitely a universal law or something 😉
I’m putting together the methods I used (and use to this day…full disclosure, I’m a total
mess work in progress) and they’re part of a class about finding the Hidden Gifts in your struggles.
I originally started this with the idea of helping others who have battled with autoimmune disease and the spiritual aspect of growth that can come from that, but then I realized, these techniques have helped me in every area of my life and shouldn’t be limited. I want you to experience the limitless potential as well!
Enrollment opens July 27th and class begins August 3rd!
