What happens when you open yourself up and share some painful truths? Say that you are with a (safe) person and the door opens to have the conversation.
What happens first?
The heart beats a little faster.
And your breath gets more rapid and shallow.
Perhaps the bile rises a bit in your throat and the stomach feels a bit acidic.
The gut speaks. Trust that gut.
Does the door remain open?
Perhaps the (safe) person gives some reassuring yet challenging feedback.
Will you keep the door open?
Allow the bodily sensations?
Trust that it was OK to expose yourself to sharing those deep truths?
Or will you restitch- unfinished? Unresolved?
Or allow the healing process some time- some much needed new infusion of wisdom?
