Today’s focus is responsibility versus control, and the interesting, often inverse, relationship between the two. Controlling behavior, whether directed at ourselves or others, often conceals unconscious responsibilities that must be owned if the controlling patterns are to be healed. For example, if you struggle with micromanaging your diet, this could conceal a need to own your emotions and embodied experiences. It can feel easier to hyper focus on controllable factors, like what to eat and how much, instead of exploring the messier emotions surrounding those food choices. Today, get curious about aspects of your life that feel controlled or overly rule-bound. What feelings come up when you ponder loosening the reins? Can you take responsibility simply by being fully present with the feelings, and if they reveal a need for change, how can you take the next step in that direction.
