Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.Viktor E. Frankl
Healthy relationships exist when we can maintain a sense of autonomy, when we are able to feel like we have a level of self government, and the ability to make our own decisions. Last week we connected to our emotions and invited ourselves to embrace them as part of our experience. That said, we don’t need to be ruled by emotion or feeling. As we explore our self health, by strengthening and expanding our connections to ourselves, we will want to consider the power that emotional autonomy can bring.
Staying in Choice
How will we find a pause, take that space, and really consider where we want our power to be? How do we want to experience our freedom? Will we accept responsibility for own feelings? And let go of our attachment to how we think others may or should be feeling?
