The Doctors: Life Strategist’s Advice For Emotional Baggage
Life strategist Gary Coxe met with a woman who was in the Army for 12 years. She was married, but her husband abandoned her. She then moved from one relationship to the next, without breaks in between. In one relationship, she was punched and bitten. She learned that it’s the role of taking care of someone else that fulfills her, and admitted to having a fear of being alone. She turned to Gary in hopes of finding the courage to stand alone and be okay with being by herself.
Gary explained that you should pick a person by choice, not by loneliness. He also asked her to set boundaries and write them down. As tears streamed down her face, Gary asked her if it would be possible to forgive everything that happened, because once you forgive, you’re left with emotional freedom. He asked her to look at her painful past experiences in a different way, by paying attention to how they helped her, rather than hurt her.
Gary then explained that forgiveness is about forgiving yourself and your mistakes, as well as forgiving what happened to you. Gary Coxe is the author of “How to Make Your Thoughts Disappear!”
