From childhood, we learn that our feelings don’t matter. Today, the world is mirroring this to us, in the issues that we are now facing in our communities. Our younger self learned that we don’t have a choice but to go along. Which means we learn to override our body sensations, our feelings, our needs, and our desires. As an adult you have the opportunity to unlearn this, and to give yourself full permission to feel the emotions that you haven’t allowed yourself to experience. To notice and identify that you have a choice about what is happening to you. To notice and ask for what you really want. To notice and say what you don’t want.
