Heartache has come up the last few days.
When I notice it as only sensations, I see that the sensations themselves are quite mild. Other sensations – in the throat and solar plexus – are stronger.
It’s the beliefs about what these sensations mean that makes it painful, and amazingly painful at times.
Here are some of these beliefs:
She doesn’t love me. I am unlovable. I will never be loved.
My life is doomed. My life is in ruins.
Something terrible has happened.
Note: In one sense, this heartache is old. It may well be from early infancy. And more accurately, it’s here now. It’s fresh.
– sensations in themselves ok, not even that strong
– the beliefs about what the sensations mean, painful
– amazing how painful, even if the sensations are mild
– some of the beliefs: label heartache, it means my life is doomed, she doesn’t love me, my life is in ruins, something terrible has happened
