Do you know what Joy feels like? Do you know what Forgiveness feels like? Do you know what Love feels like? Or do you have some inexplicable, intangible, confusing idea of what they’re supposed to feel like, but with no real experience of them, as I did?
Do you know what it feels like to live without compulsive anger, fear, conflict, frustration? What about knowing what it feels like to live without compulsively saying “yes” when you really want to say “no”? Does the thought of saying “no” put a pit in your stomach and a catch in your throat? For me, that was all about never having my “NO” respected and honored, I had no idea what that felt like.
