Thank God I am not my feelings.
I realized in therapy that one of my core beliefs was “I am not safe”. I am grateful for awareness and the ability to change that belief to “I am always protected by God’s Love. Always.
Cognitively I know that I am safe but if triggered I feel as if my life is at stake. Before therapy I would run. After therapy I can use my tools, like grounding, walking, talking, dancing or asking for help when all else fails. Praying and going to church are the most effective when strongholds are at play.
