Can I Sit With These Feelings?

If you wanted to let go, could you? It’s wild how pushing harder, doubling down or going full throttle often comes much more naturally than slowing down or letting go. One gives us a sense of control. We are getting where we need to go, bitches! And while it’s nice to feel in control, would you say that it’s a direct representation of reality? Or could it be that it is in fact a way to curb the anxiety that the thought of letting go stirs within you?

Instead of working yourself to the bone aim to observe that anxiety directly. What am I afraid of losing if I let go or slow down?

Can I sit with these feelings?

If the answer is no, you’ll be left with a pretty clear picture of what you’re pushing so hard to run from.
