Are YOU Being Emotionally Blackmailed?

Updated: Jan 18

Some days I deeply hurt....days like today when I can tune into my own emotions and the identity of others and the world.

It pains me so deeply when I see so much of people's identity lost and given away like a cheap toy because we have not been taught to stand for ourselves, to know ourselves and to own ourselves. To feel and heal our wounds, our mother wounds: the feminine and how we treat ourselves and the father wounds: the masculine and how we expect that others will treat us.

We have been taught to neglect ourselves, to negate ourselves and to bypass every emotion we experience because it was always too much for someone else to be a witness to, and now as an adult it's too much for ourselves because we have not known and been shown how to hold that space for ourselves.

We have all been suppressed, all of our wounds and all of our trauma, until life shows up with an external stimulus that activates it....for the purpose of showing us more of allow us to witness ourselves, but most of us don't do that - we choose to offload our own discomfort of that stimulus or trigger and scream, cuss, and point the finger at the one person or a situation that we feel is the cause for all of the harm that has been done to us.
