Morning Mindfulness V

I will not harm people by telling them what I feel. By communicating my feelings directly, I am respecting myself by owning my own power.

In my dysfunctional family, I learned to communicate my feelings indirectly. Certain feelings were forbidden and hidden – they had to be guessed at, and deduced from clues in behavior.

This indirect style no longer works for me. I don’t want to play games with people where feelings are concerned.I don’t want to leave a trail of clues for others to use In solving the mystery of my emotional life.

Self Affirmation: “I can express my feelings in a direct way.”
