This resonates with me so deeply as I continue my personal journey out of anxiety and low self-esteem. Even these labels, as I write them, I realise could be reassessed in the context of this concept of detachment and lifely flow. I believe this way of thinking, relating ot experience and emotions is a very valuable personal resource towards compassion and true freedom and a peaceful existence.
One of the biggest hurdles for me is 'not siding with yourself' on justifying negative self talk and internal narrative under the guise of 'self improvement' and 'learning from mistakes' and I find myself in a constant battle to allow myself to balance critique with positive compassion, gratitude and slef love. I would be very interested in anyone else's thoughts on these patterns. <3
