Day 1075: Breaking Barriers

At a therapy group last night, people talked about their experience of breaking barriers, including:

  • fear,
  • self-consciousness,
  • rejection,
  • perfectionism,
  • distrust,
  • insecurity,
  • differences,
  • shame,
  • guilt,
  • doubt,
  • miscommunication,
  • hopelessness,
  • old habits,
  • misunderstandings,
  • pain,
  • assumptions,
  • toxic/difficult/mean/uncaring people, and
  • internalized negative messages.

My imperfect memory is definitely a barrier to including all the barriers discussed during that interesting group session. I do remember one of the group members recommending this, as a way to break barriers:

Just jump!

As you’re reading this post about breaking barriers, what are the barriers in your life?  How might you begin breaking them?

Am I breaking barriers with any photos I took yesterday?





Any barriers to believing that  all they sell there is the greatest feeling on earth, during those hours?

Please, just jump into the conversation below, breaking any barriers along the way.

Thanks to all those who break barriers as best they can and to you — of course! — no matter what barriers you’ve broken to be here, now.
