Mini Mindfulness Break for January 30, 2019

People whose hearts have been injured armor themselves against further pain, rejecting anything with the potential to touch them deeply. If you tend to respond to love by running or panicking, don’t push yourself. You must eventually get over the problem if you want your emotional wounds to heal, but you can’t force this to happen. Just try to accept as much compassion as possible, in whatever form you can stand it. Persist in this effort and, over time, your resistance to love will relax.

– Martha Beck, Finding Your Own North Star: Claiming the Life You Were Meant to Live

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
