Choosing to Heal

I recently came across this passage from Emily Nagoski's amazing & important book, Come As You Are:A friend of mine left a bad relationship and declared (on Facebook), "I choose to hurt no longer. [Ex-partner] can't hurt me anymore." The second sentence is 100 percent true and is cause for celebration. But the first sentence doesn't make any sense from an attachment/completing-the-cycle point of view. When you leave a bad relationship, you have all this pent-up hurt and rage, and even fear locked up inside you, which must be allowed to discharge safely.What makes more sense is, "I choose to allow the hurt to heal."

Five Illusions of Manhood (and how to dissolve them)

1. To be a man, you must operate without emotion. Men are generally conditioned from a very early age not to feel. We tend to move from a feeling modality to one of thinking, trying to process everything from the head up, which causes dysfunction.2. To be a man, you must use sexual conquest as a gauge of manhood. We often believe that the more people we sleep with, the more we validate ourselves. Sex becomes merely physical without the emotional and spiritual goals of love, intimacy, and connection.3. To be a man, you must have money and material possessions. This illusion often drives our feelings of inadequacy. We wrongly ...
