More About Why a Life Without Passion Is Like a Life Without Air with Chrystal Rose

During our interview on Passion Struck, I asked Chrystal Rose why it is so difficult for people to find self-love.

Chrystal explains, “I think we’re so afraid to feel our feelings, we’re so afraid to feel shame or pain. Instead, we immediately just kind of like shove it to the side. And we don’t process it as we should. And so it kind of bubbles under the surface. And it’s all this like kind of yucky energy and feelings that we constantly like shoving down as opposed to sitting through it, processing through it, allowing ourselves to experience the pain or the unfortunate thing.

If I hurt your feelings. And you say, hey, Chrystal, that was I was kind of mean, and that really hurt my feelings. What can I do? I can be well, you’re just so sensitive, right? Let me just shove that back on you or let me shove it down. Because I don’t want to feel the fact that I may have said something that hurt you. Let me sit with the shame of that. And the feeling that I don’t want to be hurtful to people and feel this feeling.

And then what do I do? I’m sorry, John, that you’re right. That’s not who I want to be. But we don’t do that we avoid. We might come back and apologize. But we don’t like to be in our bodies. We do not like to feel our feelings. We like to live in our brains. People start to love themselves when they start to meet those parts of themselves that they do not like with love and with compassion. That’s where it begins.”
