Linda’s SoCS prompt for today is: “abash/a bash/bash.” Use “abash,” or “bash” as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you manage all three. Have fun!
I was not abashed by my tears. They are a part of me. While trying to meditate I allowed myself to feel the sorrow of losses I experienced as a child. There were important feelings never expressed in my life. So the fact that I feel sadness is to be expected. I do not need to smash down my sorrow or pretend it never existed. I will not bash myself for for having feelings of sorrow. I will love myself for being a survivor. I am grateful for who I am now and for the path I am taking.
