Online Recovery Support – Episode 324

Welcome to ORS 324. On this week’s show….

My favorite topic, Feelings….

  • A brief test (included in the show) to help demonstrate how difficult it can be to simply identify how we feel. Ask yourself, how am I feeling? (Just a one word answer)examples would be; Sad, lonely, grieving, lost, helpless, despondent, joyful, balanced, grounded, loved, connected. NOT, fine, good, cool, alright, etc. True, deep, real, feelings.
  • Expressing feelings – beyond the realm of what’s “normal”, when we’ve been trained to do the opposite.
  • How can you be intimate and vulnerable with a person who only shares their intellect?
  • If you would like to try an experiment, express, feel, share your feelings for 10-20 minutes a day. Just see, feel, watch, what happens. Another version ( my favorite) would be, just sit and feel. That’s it, nothing more, just feel…….
  • My little girl Isabelle – communicating on an energetic level, beyond words?
  • Babysitter weighs in and votes “yes”. Can we all do the same?
  • Our relationships develop and mature to the degree that we are emotionally honest with ourselves.
  • Step 11 – the most important starting place for growth.
    Practicing the art of listening, or “attending” to someone. It can be a deeply spiritual experience.
  • Brene Brown – Be as vulnerable and open and as forthcoming as you can be.
