A weakness in my calf is creating a pain in my foot.
That's how the body works though, isn't it?
Everything is interconnected, something changes in one place and that sets off a chain reaction that ends up somewhere else altogether.
I feel like my emotional discomfort follows the same pattern. Where it hurts is not really the source of the discomfort.
It's a bit of a fault in the system really. Because when something is uncomfortable then of course my attention is drawn to the discomfort. I really have to make myself step back and look for the bigger picture.
That seems easier when it comes to physical discomfort, I can see how all the bits interconnect.
But with my feelings...the pathways are often opaque, chaotic, illogical and imperceptible.
That's why getting to know myself is such a wild ride.
