When we have feelings of being vulnerable, powerless, or frightened it can be hard to gain control. It is not always easy to deal with these feelings in an appropriate way. We may blame innocent bystanders, hurt people we love, or even punish the people around us because we are in pain. We react this way because it gives us a temporary feeling of control, but in reality, we are only avoiding and postponing the pain of what we need to face. Our real power will come when we allow ourselves to feel the hurt and work through our pain.
Today I can own my pain and heal by not blaming others and taking full responsibility for how I feel. I can and I will be vulnerable enough to feel my pain. I can ask for help to work through my feelings if needed.
