The more we push something away, the more it affects us.

When working inwardly with ourselves we start to recognise that it is our relationship with things that creates our experience, not actually the things themselves.

Be it an emotion we don’t want to feel or a chore we don’t want to do, the more we resist, judge or try to avoid it, the more we struggle and the more we suffer.

Compassionate allowing creates space and freedom. It doesn’t mean you have to like it, but within a bit more acceptance you can begin to feel more peace; self acceptance with how you feel and acceptance of life’s challenges.

Of course working to be more compassionately allowing and accepting is never the case when we are experiencing abuse or clear disrespect. In these situations, the learning is always to value ourselves more by clearly saying no and likely by stepping aside.
