This past weekend as my housemates and I were watching one of our favorite shows, I realized that I was having a very hard time with the violence in the show. It wasn't graphic or over the top. Just bringing alot of tension into my body. I took a few deep breaths and felt better. When the movie started and the violence started again only much more graphic the tension returned only this time upsetting my stomach. I excused myself and went to bed. This is the first time this has happened. I have always said that I knew the violence in movies and tv shows are make believe, but I guess I am progressing and can no longer handle violent movies. I am also seeing how harmful words can be. It seems this week all the negative talk and sarcastic remarks made by my coworkers and myself are being shown to me. I'm once again getting that big push from Spirit to change how I am treating others and myself. This will be a big change, I often speak without thinking how its going to sound or what impact it will have. Maybe a day of silence is in order.
