I had a moment in a yoga class after my surgery that I remember vividly. A teacher brought me a block, and I was offended. So offended I wanted to leave. I didn’t need SUPPORTS. I was FINE. This still comes up sometimes but at least I’m able to recognize it now. Sometimes I don’t know when I need supports because I’m always okay, because the worst thing ISN’T happening. So I can truck on through. I think a lot of people tend to feel the same- that so long as it’s not the WORST thing happening currently, we’ll get by.
I’ve been using a lot of supports lately since I’m on break and it feels good. This being the year of harmony for me I must find a way to incorporate them into life when I’m feeling that “I’m fine” feeling.
Truth is, supports are good. Egos are a bitch. Vulnerability is hard. And life rolls on.
