“Life is good.”
“I have no complaints.”
“My relationship is pretty smooth right now.”
“Things are going much better.”
Lie to me a little more baby.
“I’m learning to forgive more.”
“I have a new perspective now.”
“I just need to learn to detach from his hurtful words more.”
“I just need to stop letting it affect me.”
“I just need to be more patient while he figures things out.”
“I just need to find a way to keep myself emotionally safe from his woundedness.”
“I feel so much better now after he apologized.”
“I’m practicing leaving the past behind.”
“He doesn’t mean to hurt me.”
“He’s getting help.”
“I don’t know why I got so rattled. It really wasn’t that big of a deal.”
“He said it won’t happen again and he really means it.”
Feminine shadow energy.
It’s sneaky power makes me shudder.
I remember saying and thinking Every. Single. One. of. These.
And it’s so strong. I really believed them.
This is the shadow energy of MINIMIZING. It is a deep denial.
The funny thing is, a part of me knew they were not quite the whole truth. I would tell them to myself but I would do my best to make sure no one else ever knew anything below the surface. All I wanted to do was bury the pain. I wasn’t ready to let go yet. So, the secrets grew. The minimizing became my normal.
That was my reality.
If you read the above statements and they feel familiar, please message me. It’s time to look at the truth. I know that scares the shit out of you. I know it takes so SO much courage. But we can do it together. Even if you chose to stay and try to make it work, you still deserve to see your relationship for the truth of what it is.
