As humans, we all love a good story. A witty yarn. Some meaty gossip. It’s in our blood. But just how attached are we to these hand-me-down communication patterns and social triggers, and what can we do to identify and then clear them, once and for all?
You may have already identified some attention-seeking cyclic stories in your own life and be taking steps to extricate yourself from their grip, but for many people, separating from the foundational things that have made us feel safe, strong and justified our behavior (to ourselves) for years, is a daunting and difficult task. Even just thinking about who you might be after resolution lands, can cause some to go into a state of panic, and then further denial. We get attached to being attached!
Yep. It takes guts to admit and then own, where we need to work.
