Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom, and sentiment. -Theresa
The Toreador: Graciella asks us to reflect on how we treat current relationships based on what our experiences have been in the past.
Many of us create drama and high levels of stress when there is no need to do so. The wise saying, Hysterical is historical, enlightens for us the baggage that often needs to be unpacked when dealing in today’s situations.
Are we reacting due to trauma, abuse, or neglect by our primary caregivers during our childhoods? Is the over reaction today a remnant of the feelings that we experienced when we were truly powerless to care for ourselves?
Thorough reflection and very possibly asking for outside help will help us to navigate the choppy waters of life.
Today, I will care for the tiny person within who is in need of help today just as she or he was many years ago. Today, I will be responsive to me and then I can be responsive to those around me.
In light and love,
Graciella and Theresa
