STOP TRYING TO CHANGE THOUGHTS: when you hear the word “surrender” or “letting go” what comes up? Ask me that 5 years ago early 20s I would have said “DEFEAT!” or “GIVING UP!” - toxic narrative. Exhausting. Random. There’s peace in letting go/surrendering. Knowing which battles to choose in life - can’t fight them all. Can’t FIGURE everything out! The Point: Stop trying to change thoughts. You have 60k per day. Real root is the feeling. Go here.

REAL ROOT IS FEELINGS: Research showing thoughts aren’t stored in the mind - they are categorized. Like a file on the computer. Categorized under FEELINGS. Thousands/millions of thoughts can be REPLACED by a single emotion “Emotions are a record of the past” -- Emotions are more Primitive in brain — thoughts are NEWER, so less priority.

SUPPRESSION // REPRESSION SUPPRESSION: Consciously done. REPRESSION: Subconsciously done. Repression is DEEPER - usually too much guilt/shame around event to deal with consciously. Stuff it down. The root of patterns we have in relationships, friendships, business, self-talk, money, family, etc.

EXPRESSION Pressure valve to release a little inner pressure -- goes back to repressing and surpassing more “Isn’t it GOOOD to express feelings?” - sometimes! But can be SELFISH. i.e. friend who was dating a manipulative woman. ALWAYS needing to “have a talk” - just her way of PROJECTING onto him all responsibility of a relationship.
