Are you walking on egg-shells?
How to deal with emotional pollution in your life
“Be yourself. If you water yourself down to please people or to fit in or not to offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom and the joy of being uniquely you. It’s much easier to love yourself when you are being yourself.” Dan Coppersmith. Does this resonate with you? If so you are dealing with emotional pollution in your life. We all want our relationships to go well but some of us would rather avoid or prevent confrontation or criticism rather than deal with it. We then start to second guess ourselves and become worried not doing things well enough and try hard to not set her or him off. Overtime we loose sense of who we are, and either become resentful or internalize blame from our partner’s resentment. Either way, we hate the person we’ve become. Tired of walking on eggshells? The way out is to be aware of how this destructive emotional disorder is harming you and to start developing self-compassion. This will motivate you to improve which will force change in your relationship. The more you develop self-compassion the more the more you become compassionate to the people you love.
