When You're Being Reactive

a love note from your Inner Wisdom

Dear One,


I am writing to remind you of things you already know. When you are feeling particularly vulnerable and are displaying an increase in emotional reactivity, place yourself in context.


What are the circumstances of your life right now? Step back and take a wide-angle view. Surely you will notice that your tolerance is lowered because there are things, perhaps just below the surface, that you are trying to navigate, process, and integrate.


Give yourself some grace, and normalize your experience. Validate your feelings by reminding yourself, “Of course, you are feeling vulnerable and being emotionally reactive!” Then forgive yourself if you have acted unskillfully, and give yourself the space you need right now so that you can tend to your own wounds and make mindful choices. Your capacity will grow as you prioritize self-care.


Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love and therefore, to live into the fullness of who you are.


As always, do what best awakens you to love,

Your Inner Wisdom
