You’ll Never ‘Get Over’ Something That’s Under Wraps - Grasshopper

We’ve all been told to “get over it.” It’s a directive without directions.

I’m not sure I have a blueprint for getting over something, but I do have a starting point: examine what’s not being expressed.

 

What are you keeping down that wants to come up?

 

It’s a question worthy of an answer. The answer will bring your underlying issue to the light of day, where inspection and reflection alleviate the pressure of keeping it under wraps.

 

Once out from under, you’re at the starting point of getting over. I don’t have the rest of the steps, only the first one. But it’s like that famous Chinese philosopher said, “The longest journey begins by tying your sneakers.”

 

Begin the process of getting over it by taking the first step: acknowledge what wants to come up instead of pushing it down again.

 

It’s from this new vantage point that you’ll begin the process of getting over that which has been plowing you under.

 

All the best,

John
