So the problem doesn’t really lie within the word, the obstacle is the emotion it’s causing me.
I feel Compromised.
Working with emotions can feel like entering a new space where basically the lowest and highest levels are in constant fight of attention. It may make you feel totally out of control and vulnerable to the present.
If I allow myself to step into that feeling for a short moment, being compromised. From this space I ask myself if there is another emotion I’d rather feel that would give me a sense of energy, harmoni and balance?
I much rather feel Unlimited! The taste of that is so much greater and more fun.
Okey. Is it possible to feel Unlimited and at the same time use the word amputee? (you don’t need to label yourself therefore!)
I thought about it for a little and came to the conclusion: Yes it is for sure possible.
This great life lessons taught me:
- You can detach what you feel about a certain word and redesign it by consciously choosing another one! By that you will create a new meaning and experience of a situation.
So even if you feel uncomfortable about being labelled as ”young”, ”old”, ”unexperienced”, ”divorced”, ”single” etc. Remember, it’s rather simple to detach that negative emotion and replace it with a new greater one that makes you feel good.
Today when I use the word amputee it gives me a feeling of being Unlimited.
This is just a tiny shift you also can make in your life in order to create a whole new experience and improve your way of living, try it! I encourage you to it!
I know it might be tricky to try this on your own, so if you feel you would need a bit support to make it happen. Reach out to me for a coaching session and we make it happen!
