Am I getting what I need?
This questions has been ringing around my head instead of the senseless listing of resolutions that are forgotten in 60 days. It’s stating to bug me. Sitting in my UU church, it came across again. Am I getting what I need? It’s happened at home at the most mundane moments. I know I need to pay attention to this and to answer this pressing question.
Lately I have started a new regiment for the days end; recapitulation. It’s a roll back technique that has been used to help increase communication between couples and to increase awareness of both the body and the mind. I simply rewind the days events in my mind, from the last action to the first just before I fall asleep. It’s very simple but I think I might need to actually write things out.
I’m already noticing a variety of behaviours in myself. Everything from parent tapes to automatic response behaviour. It is good to see the problems within myself. It is good to have a chance to repair.
But am I getting what I need from my church?
from my family?
from my husband?
from my friends?
Are you getting what you need too?
