Sister won’t talk to me (part 2)


Brooke,
Thank you so much for your response to my predicament with my sister. I’m amazed time and time again how quickly you can “cut to the chase”.

I had a ton of thoughts and emotions around this situation but when it was all said and done, I learned that it was much easier for me to accept her and her thoughts lovingly and compassionately then it was for me to accept the way I handled the situation. I began a thought download all about her and ended up with thoughts all about me wishing I had handled things differently. I was wishing I had been more mature, less defensive, etc. That was my work, and when I discovered it, I was free, free to lean into those negative emotions, and free to accept my humanness and imperfection with compassion and love. And, then, it all went away. I love thought downloads and I love the model.
