How we meet the world can be cultivated from a place of adaptability and tolerance, where we don’t have to get caught up or lose ourselves by losing connection to self-trust, despite external influence. We can regain balance, return to a place of ‘home’, resource and self-regulation and exercise boundaries so that we can both protect and connect in relationship.
We build our capacity for resilience through being able to acknowledge and greet strong emotions such as fear and anxiety without being overwhelmed. When we meet ourselves with self-compassion and recognise emotional drain and nourish ourselves. When we can exercise discernment around our thinking, and question the inner critic’s truth.
