People regularly serve sloppy advice to others such as “you shouldn’t be so self-conscious”...
Another popular one I used to receive when I was younger & dealing with anxiety was “oh stop being so sensitive”.
It would infuriate me and in some cases bring me to tears. It was frustrating. I was feeling all this stuff, while being told it was wrong.
These common words of wisdom, are the exact opposite of intelligent advice! It’s utterly moronic. It’s a shit sandwich of avoidance.
I’m here to invite you into being as deeply self-conscious as you can possibly be...Every moment of your life! You NEED to feel just how uncomfortable a certain situation makes you, so that you can come to truly understand it from a felt sense, and transcend through it.
We are taught very early on to fear, resist and avoid overwhelming/uncontrollable feelings. To the point where we end up shutting down entirely, fearing what may come. You are being taught by the walking-dead how to stay asleep, to avoid waking up to the truth of what rules you.
You NEED to feel every inch of your insecurity and discomfort as it wells up in your being. Be courageously sensitive. It’s your teacher! Learn to welcome the ocean of chaos, and begin transforming your fear of self, your fear of life, into love of self, and love of life. Once more, I invite you; Be supremely self conscious...not only will you be the most intelligent person in the room, but it just may save your life!
Much Love, Chris
