    I have been researching the fear surrounding rejection. The phrase that keyed this path for me: Do Not Fear Rejection. The emphasis in that sentence: fear. So, I have been all over with that concept. Lately, I have been researching Shunning, and Abandonment Trauma, and have learned alot, which I will post on another thread. But I found this today in my researching of things. Essentially, what this therapist is describing is how that concept we call Radical Compassion works. Not Radical Acceptance, but the concept of holding ourselves with compassion as we break through the layers of denial and into healing and wholeness.

    And here it is.


    Phrases like:

    Endangerment Attack
    Time Urgency
    Self Abandonment
    Fear Mongering

    Aggressive Self Protection
    Amygdala Highjacking

    Book Suggestions:

    Soul Without Shame Brown
    Embracing the Inner Critic Stone & Stone

    A quote for us from the above material:

    "I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself."

    Jane Eyre
