Have you ever been frustrated by the things your parents do? Maybe the way they handle money upsets you; maybe the foods they chose to eat bother you; maybe their inactivity makes you mad. How can you work with that?
Growing up as a child there may have been things we didn’t like about our parents causing us to feel frustrated. Now as adults we may find those same frustrations appear with other people in our life. Not only are we finding those frustrations with others, we also ‘bump’ into the same challenges with our self! Why is that?
At one point we experienced life as this child looking up to our parents. There were things we liked and then there were things we didn’t like. When we moved away from home, we may have thought we were better able to handle the things that bothered us about our parents. We head off to work…maybe get married…maybe have children and one day…bang! We bump into the same things that frustrated us about our parents….only this time we see them in our Self! Have you ever experienced that?
For me, personally I didn’t like how hard it was at times to get my mom to do things. We would ask her and her reply would be to say no. Over time that frustrated me. I didn’t realize how deep that frustration was until now.
These past few weeks I’ve been finding it hard to get ‘me’ out of bed in the morning. The conversations I have with my Self have been very interesting to say the least. This is not normal for me! It was time to become aware of what I was being shown.
I started noticing heavy dense energy present when gearing up to ‘do’ a number of things. Then out of the blue I was talking with a friend. This friend was sharing how frustrated she was with her mother. She also shared the same frustration towards herself. What a gift! Those were words I needed to hear to resolve my challenge!
Allow me to add at this point…since being back from India I’ve been working on accepting and loving myself more. After talking with my friend, I could so easily see how I was working with a frustration I had with my own mom. In order for me to love myself more…I needed to move through that challenge. Putting that another way, I experienced the frustration I had was getting in the way of loving my Self!
Going from a child looking up at our parents…we may now see our ‘inner child’ may be looking up to us as the parent. That child in us may see frustrations we recognize we had with our own parents. Seeing that, we can now resolve and heal those frustrations. This results in a greater love for both our parents and our Self .
Frustrations we have with our parents can actually be amazing gifts when it comes to loving ourselves! We are always rewarded for doing our inner work!
May you find what works for you…find your own truth…and you will always be guided to feel at peace inside.
I wish you so much inner peace and joy.
