Yesterday, Sheena and I had an argument.
It was over a small thing that wasn’t really important in the big scheme of things.
I went into my old pattern of shutting down and then walking away.
I walked away, because I completely disagreed with what Sheena was saying.
However, I really walked away because I couldn’t handle what she was saying and how it made me feel.
Part of me knew to let the pain wash over and to listen, but that part of me wasn’t loud enough to take action in the moment.
This morning, we officially called a truce.
I forgive myself for doing the exact opposite of what I know was best.
I am continuously humbled.
At the same time, I am extremely inspired, because I know exactly what I need to do in order to change over time, and I know there is a lot of room for growth.
The more I use every moment to condition myself to appreciate whatever comes up, the more I can listen to Sheena next time.
How I am in one area of my life is how I am in all areas.
For example, resisting a conversation I don’t want to have is no different than resisting work or exercise I don’t want to do.
We cannot be afraid of the truth.
