Honour yourself with silence
How comfortable are you with silence? Do you find you always need background noise? TV or music on, even if you're not actually watching or really listening?Background noise and the inability to deal with silence is an important indicator that we are not comfortable. We use these things as a distraction, to keep what we're really thinking and feeling squashed down inside. If we're not used to silence, it can seem very scary and a bit overwhelming. But being better able to tolerate even short periods of silence is crucial is building self awareness and paying attention to what is going on for us.
