Breaking Free — 5 Comments

  1. Ahh, I agree with you. I thought by finding a boyfriend I would be complete .. instead I was as insecure as ever. Eventually he dumped me and I was a mess. I probably was worse off than before I was in the relationship. I don’t care about being coupled now, I want to learn how to love myself and make my life complete on my own.

  2. Rachel,

    I just wanted you to know that I appreciate you, all of the inner work that you are doing, as well as your willingness to openly share this with all of us in the digital world. 🙂

  3. here’s where this comment box cut me off, so i’m continuing it here…….workable solution (though somewhat annoying and mysterious….)

    i just wanted to add one more thought: so many teachers and methods, belief systems and ideologies; analyses and meditations…….and like tara said somewhere……I FEEL ENLIGHTENED, THEN GO BACK TO MY DAY….AND LOSE IT!

    i’m so glad that was remembered……because this process we can call cultural healing; unlearning past failed methods and beginning a whole new personal adventure in life……….it’s central to our lives, it is MONUMENTAL, and it is long and difficult…..

  4. Powerful message……powerful topic…..there’s so much i edentify with here…..

    this comes under the heading of a cultural rebirth process that so many of us want and need and struggle with for so long. i realize how much change we all have to go through and you are expressing it powerfully……that sometimes it’s a very steep rock climb with only a dim view of the top of the rock or the resting place ahead….

    i clicked on your links, first, fronsdal, since he’s new to me and i was curious. didn’t have patience to sit through it, i needed something more compelling to me. tara brach’s link REALLY WORKED for me! great talk!
