I have been a member of Scholars for almost two years and I feel like I’m not making progress.
I’ve been good at the Model, writing down my thoughts looking at the triggers and emotions but just can’t seem to get beyond that. It’s like I’ve brought more awareness to my primitive brain but rather than learning to manage it, it’s just screaming louder.
I’ve been meeting with the coaches but don’t feel like I am making progress. Is there anything else I can do? Just “accepting” or “feeling” the emotion feels more like a distraction than a method to help me “feel better.”
What am I missing? How do I manage my primitive brain and its screaming?
