I just opened today’s e-mail, intending to suggest a topic, only to find that our minds have run in the same general direction. Today, I was experiencing a clear conflict of inner selves. I have been working on Steve Wells’ 30-day self acceptance, from your podcast #65, and, this afternoon, when I faced a particularly daunting arena, one part of me reminded me that I had done the best I could at the time, even though that had left a huge continuing problem to deal with. And another part of me was busy saying, “Well, if that’s your best, I’d hate to see your worst! This is really bad, and labeling it your best effort at the time doesn’t make it any better …there’s really no excuse for this failure … you should have done better!” (As you can hear, the shame dispenser is quite voluble, and manages to quash any rebuttal.)
So the argument between the parts of me that would treat me gently, and the parts of me that would treat me harshly, is the tapping topic I want to suggest.
And thank you for today’s tapping script … the parts of me that treat me harshly are probably as love-deprived as most bullies, so they will get a mention as I work through today’s script.
