Effect on Emotions

  • I used to feel that I was a victim of my emotions. I carried it as part of my identity, for example, I am depressed, I am anxious.
  • Now when I'm experiencing an emotion, actually I am grateful for it because this shows me that it's linked to something deeper.
  • I will go into my emotional state and work on understanding what that emotion is connected to.
  • Then I will start working on the underlying trauma or cause of that emotional state. This is true especially if I realize I am over-exaggerating my reaction to something.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is one of those things that's very powerful because it supersedes or interjects itself into your body and into your mindset.
  • I suggest doing intentional breathing, a deep breath into your belly, and breathing out, and focus on that for mindfulness.
  • You can focus on breathing in calm energy and breathing out anxious energy, or breathing in happy energy and breathing out depressed energy.
  • This is a very good way to come back to center and come back to focus because it takes your mind off of all other extraneous things that may be distracting you.

Bullying Story

  • I wasn't usually at the brunt of being bullied. It was more feeling like I was left out a lot of times. Having developed a better sense of self when I was younger, if I'd had some kind of support, it would have been wonderful.
  • When my youngest son was in first or second grade, there was a girl who was picking on him and he was really angry about it. He said, “I told the teacher and she won't listen because she's grown and I'm just a boy.”
  • There was this whole dynamic that the teacher was just not understanding what was going on.
  • I told him, “there's a reason that she's acting that way towards you. This is not about you, it's about what she's going through in her life. It's about her misery.”
  • I said, “what she's feeling inside is so much harder for her than what she's giving to you, so you need to think about that. When she's mean to you, think, she must be really going through something.”
  • He said that he got to where he could talk to her and he said, “mom, I found out that her parents were getting divorced. She was really angry because her mom was living with somebody else and she missed her dad.”
  • He said, “I understand now”.
