Is your sense of belonging dependent upon feeling in control?
When her husband offered her the trip she had longed for, instead of getting excited, Cynthia Occelli freaked out and realized:
All of this was code for: I don’t like it when I’m not in control.
Which is code for: I’m afraid of unexpected change.
Which is code for: Painful past changes have led a part of me to believe that if I control my life, I’ll control change and avoid painful future changes.
Which is code for: I’m hiding.
And that’s not what I’m here to do.
Are you hiding from your own heart's deepest desires? The ones that could fulfill you and cultivate a deeper sense of belonging your life and by extension in the world?
Where are you hiding?
