Rejection and Abandonment
So, last night I had the opportunity to speak at an even hosted by Jessica Burrell of Tribe Amplify at Muscedere Winery. It was fantastic. The women I had the opportunity to share the space were so authentic and inspiring. I am sharing the video that was taken of my presentation.
The focus was to discuss how the fear of rejection and abandonment if rooted in the desire to be acknowledged and validated. I began by sharing an experience I had this week about not feeling supported by friends. Something triggered me and forced me to look at my EXPECTATIONS. I did so lovingly as I knew I had to be GENTLE WITH MYSELF, as I knew that wherever this feeling was coming from, it was tied to past experiences that created a similar feeling.
I then shared something that I had written...word that flowed from my heart when I had realized where these feeling originated. I reminded myself of the FORGIVENESS I had given to myself and everyone else involved to free myself from holding on to burden of the past.
To end, I went over the three principles I have just highlighted. Enjoy!
When I experience something that makes me think, allows me to learn or provides an opportunity for growth, I'd like to share it with you.
