*sitting here, coffee in my lap, trying to figure how to tell Tyler how that made me feel , speechless , tears in my eyes
Tyler, thank you!
Thank you for letting us see you and giving us space to be seen and handle this Anger-fire together .
Anger is such a tricky thing...justifiable in the face of atrocities...and we have many to confront these days. Having overcome anger as my baseline emotion, I can safely say there is a big difference between defining myself as "angry" and allowing anger to move through me when it's absolutely the corresponding emotion to the circumstance. The difference between the two is attachment. Oh and yes, I fall into that psychology category you mentioned 😉, but I wanted to just take a moment to honor the struggle and perhaps help reframe the narrative. 💗
In this moment, I think this is my favorite thing you've written....which is saying something because you slay with words. But this took you off a page or screen and sat you right down here with me like a friend speaking their truth and it just felt simple, right, and real. I just nodded a hundred times saying "me too!" and where you speak Autism I speak ADHD and our spectrums wink at each other in empathetic understanding. I seriously just want to give you a high five and big smile and a tearful hug. All that frustration and all those breaths are the human things about us in this crazy time that our Divine selves have shown up to do "life." And it's all so relatable. But the growth part.... that's where the choice lies and choosing it reveals your gold every time. So here we humans are, all choosing to grow together. It's a precious thing to witness every time.
You have me Googling some of the Buddhism I've forgotten. Thank you! Now where did I put my pocket Dhammapada?
Thank you. Those two words seem so very inadequate but they are also so very meant. Your writing...your vulnerability and willingness to share it with this community leaves me speechless sometimes (today being one of them). So...thank you Tyler.
