I had minimal doubts when I began the SEP, and they are basically gone, thanks to the daily articles and experiences of others. I'm becoming more aware of the pressure I put on myself to be perfect, do good and be liked. I'm more able to see this about myself with kindness. I had an "aha moment" the other day when I realized the many ways I try to avoid doing this work. Today I made a decision not to take on an extra commitment in July because I saw that it would distract me from doing this program effectively, and it would have been a HUGE avoidance tactic! My pain has increased, and two more body parts are yelling at me in the past two days. I'm trying to remember to reassure them that they are really OK and tell myself that it is safe to look at my emotions. This journey is not going to be a walk in the park, but I can see that the benefits will be even more far-reaching than being pain free.
