w.o.w.~a forgiveness intention, affirmation, and compendium {by sarah nean bruce}

i am strong .
i let go of that past .
i am not excusing you .
i will always remember .
i do not require an apology .
i do not expect you to change .
i believe your truth will come to you .
i know forgiveness is just for me .
i affirm my healing journey .
i wish you well henceforth .
i gave my time to time .
i release you forever .
i free myself now .

love requires elasticity

{being in} love requires *elasticity. love may conquer all, but don’t let it conquer then crush. one must be flexible and autonomous with oneself in order to be good with another. here are some excellent excerpts from a bittersweet and touching article by Kelly Reynolds from Tiny Buddha 2011/10/26 ~ snb

P.S. In physics, *elasticity (or stretchiness) is “the physical property of a material that returns to its original shape after the stress (e.g. external forces) that made it deform or distort is removed. The relative amount of deformation is called the strain.”

p.o.w.~desensitizing & minimizing fears

i think i used a form of this cognitive therapy ~ Exposure & Response Prevention ~
{its inception probably introduced by my marriage/divorce counselor}
with my fears {financial, relationship, creative, social} to start desensitizing myself in 2007.
and to this day, i look these phantoms in the face,
i don’t avoid them or
run from them or
become anxious by them.
It is far harder to kill a phantom than a reality.~Virginia Woolf
