Just writing to solidify this teaching. It’s like what I learned from bed bugs. Well first, who knew my parents nightly mantra to me “don’t let the bedbugs bite” would eventually manifest that shit.
I was an administrator of a 30 person housing facility for homeless women. So this place regularly got bedbugs. The more I learned about the bedbugs ways (what they need) the less afraid I was of them. I also had way less shame about having them. And I was great at soothing clients who had them about recovering from them.
I can see how now this applies to the forces I’m stressed about. Oh boy. Heavy heart stuff.
