Calling in the One: Day 6
I started the day thinking I was already a master at this. After all, I am a feeler by nature. But I realized today that I work harder at tuning out the energy of others as opposed to tuning in. As soon as I realized what I was doing, I tuned in and was pleasantly surprised! I got to know two of my coworkers a lot better after having deep conversations with them. I even had a conversation with my new roommate that was unexpectedly pleasant.
I must have come across as much more approachable & softer than when I'm focused on tasks at work & try to tune people out. My fear has been that I'll drown in others' emotions because of the enmeshment I experienced with my mother. What actually happened was I felt safer, friendlier, more compassionate, connected (with others and myself), & overall happier!
