Opening Up and Shutting Down
Have you ever been told that you are too open? Sometimes you will hear it from yourself, “Why was I so open?” “Why did I allow this to happen?”
All of the why’s and boo-hoo’s spill out from your mind and being, and then a natural fervor of shutting down ensues. It is usually at this juncture that a story develops and your perspective of pain becomes the storyteller.
To those who would unconsciously support you, this story is an important definition by which your righteousness is justified. All choices, relationships, definitions of you, conversation topics, and further contribution stems from the permissive devices within this story.
What are these permissive devices? Blame, anger, hurt, victimization, love, hate, causes, effects, and all other justifications for shutting yourself down - before you know it, these things have created a boundary composed of a dark cloud that seems impenetrable.
So, what can you do in order to stay open when the rest of the world is intent on your shutting down?
To put it another way- when encountering someone else grappling onto your circumstances in order to limit reality, out create the would-be limitation.
Instead of resisting another’s resistance, use it to increase your own knowledge by asking more questions.
You can allow others to define your reality, or you can define your reality. Which sounds more agreeable and fun?
No matter what your choices are, remember that the experience of your world shutting down, typically denotes change and is a sign that you are growing. Choosing to stay small may work for a short time, but happiness exists in the greater.
