“It’s impossible to live present as long as you are in the past and you are always in the past if you need to be safe and keep yourself safe.” – Dr. Gabor Mate
If you are trapped in the old stories that keep you safe. The ones form the past, the ones you didn’t even know built this box around you, built these safety colored glasses with which you see the world. The ones that alter every interaction you have.
These stories actually keep us in the past. These stories made from micro and macro traumas of all kinds. We must identify these stories in order to release them.
Because, as of now, we aren’t responding to what happens, we are responding to our perception of what happens, our interpretation of what happened.
Dare I say, we aren’t responding to the present, we are responding to the past.
What does it look like to live and respond in the present?
