When you started trying for a baby, you may have experiencedd a sense of hope and excitement. As time progresses, these emotions can be accompanied or even pushed aside by emotions such as fear, anger, jealousy, grief.
And you know that these feeling that are stress evokomhg emotions, aren’t helpful, which further increases the worry.
These emotions are unwanted and the energy in pushing them away or trying to change then can actually be an increased emotional burden.
Today I discuss the theory of accepting the emotion, and I repeat, the EMOTION, not the situation. I start to look at the emotional aspects an our response to pain and its impact on you.
I refer to something cited by Dr Russ Harris called the struggle switch. If you were in quick sand, the more you struggle, the quicker you will sink, but if you can lay flat, arms and legs outstretched you’d float, easier said that none eh?
I reference the FREE Fertility Course, Fertility 101-an owners manual, which throughout encourages you to identify the emotions and thoughts you have, and perhaps a pattern, when it comes to further understanding aspects of your own fertility.
