It’s vital that you not blame yourself for anything that happened previously; keep an open mind, and first, listen to what someone is saying to you.
The result is an effervescent, potentially relentless inner monologue that can be annoying, and which is unproductive.
This is less about creating a masterpiece and more about feeling, texture, sensation and translating your emotions into physical reality.
If you cannot choose, then do not: which is to say, pause, and return to the matter another time.
It’s essential that you prioritize, both in terms of the value of any task being performed for another, and who that person might be.
Be particularly careful with people you’ve had issues with in the past, as they are likely to show up again.
It is the rare person who is capable of revising their opinion or viewpoint when they come into contact with new information.
The most helpful thing you can do is to not stuff your feelings, but rather, give them a voice: on paper would be best, so you can come back to them.
Define and enforce your boundaries, particularly with what you want known by others.
Just remember that such matters always come back to the family of origin, and that in turn comes back to your internal map of reality.
It’s essential that you take care of your human faculties of faith and belief, because if they are injured, you will undermine your ability to trust reality.
You will, however, have to be paying attention; you will need to notice what others are doing and what you are experiencing.
