Working on my emotional resilience

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

For the last few weeks I have been doing this emotional resilience class through my church. This last week I decided that I might just need more help then this class can provide. I shared to much, I talk to much, I feel like an ass.

I need to shut my mouth and let others grow...

I made a new friend through this class. And she depends on me for a ride now. But, I really just want to quit the class. Like I said above, I shared to much this last week, and I feel like I might be domineering the conversations. I wish I could say that I will just shut up and listen more over the next few classes. However, I promise myself that I will do that every week... and I end up talking away.

The class it's self is great. It is a faith driven class, so it requires that I surrender to a higher power, but it also requires that I make clear goals. I could always just do the work book alone. I am not sure that I will get as much out of the class. But, I am sure that the others in the class will get more if I am not present.

    Make a card out that says "PASS" and keep it in your hands as others speak. Stare at it or whatever it takes. It takes time to break habits.

    It could be a time for you to learn to sit with that urge to contribute and release it, watch it go by as if you are a bystander. It's not what you went there to learn about, but it could be good in a different way.

    It sounds like a beneficial class. Maybe you sharing will inspire the other class members to share as well. Getting it out is usually beneficial, but I agree that some things are better off not said. Have a good day.

    I think you will benefit from going to this class. What I find true for myself is that when something is uncomfortable, I wind up benefiting without realizing it.
