[art/words: @themindgeek ]
✏️We all have expectations for the relationships in our lives. We also place expectations on ourselves; how we want to show up + communicate, particularly amidst conflict
✏️Any of us who continue to work on responding in conflict rather than react in conflict [👋], will know the struggle. On the surface, it may be a thoughtful, considered sentence offered to our partner
✏️Underneath, it’s no easy feat. We’re battling our survival instincts. We’re attempting to regulate the attack + defend reflex, the search for safety + all our ego stories that have formed along the way
✏️Expressing gratitude amidst or in the aftermath of conflict strengthens the relationships core because:
📓It enables learning for both [if we’re open to it]
📓It creates safety
📓Efforts are acknowledged
📓It offers us a new blueprint for what conflict can look like
📓It allows for communication, not simply talking to, at or over each other
✏️This isn’t a “Thank you for not speaking to me like s**t this time!”. It also isn’t making allowances for a prior history of harmful behavior. It’s taking time to nourish fulfilling relationships, which both have progressed + contributed toward. “Thank you for making this a safe space to say sorry”. “I appreciate you communicating this to me in the way you have”.
✏️While respectful communication is something we all deserve, the hard truth is, not everyone will meet this expectation + from time to time we won’t quite hit the mark either. Consider taking time to express gratitude for someone meeting (or surpassing) our expectation, + for co-creating a safe space for us to learn new ways of being. What might that sound like for you?✨
Learning about shame & guilt and how they’re linked with vulnerability in my psychology course for school right now.
And they actually used several references from Brene (Bren-Nay) Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection, for one section. ✨✨✨
Shame keeps us from really connecting with other’s(being vulnerable) because we fear there’s something about us that is unloveable. Guilt is “I’m sorry I made a mistake” & Shame is “I’m sorry I AM a mistake”. It’s clear how this feeling could be catastrophic to one’s belief in their own worthiness. Worthiness to feel love & belonging. Which is the only thing that separates those who have wonderful, fulfilling relationships with those who don’t... the BELIEF that they are WORTHY of Love & Belonging❤️ THIS is the reclaiming that need to happen. When we are born we demand love, we don’t take no. But from trauma we lose this innate k n o w i n g that we are more than worthy, regardless of what anyone does or says to us. 🥀 This is a journey that needs to be taken if we are to come home to ourselves & to cultivate true connection with others as well. 🌹 #abusesurvivor ...
