What we avoid pursues us and what we face transforms us– attributed to D. Kessler
If we compulsively avoid something, what we really avoid is a sensation combined with a scary story.
And when we avoid a part of ourselves, it will pursue us. It seeks to join in. It seeks to be loved and understood.
When we face what we have avoided, when we befriend it and perhaps invite it to wake up, it will transform us.
