If strong feelings of resistance, no, or ‘you can’t make me’ arise when you try to make positive changes in your life, you may feel caught in a battle between the part of you that wants to change and the part of you that says no.
This can leave you feeling unsure of what to do: do I move through the resistance? Or do I stop, and pause?
You may feel frustrated that you’re caught in this inner conflict, unable to move forward.
If you get caught in feelings of no and resistance, or struggle to make changes that will nourish your well being, I invite you to try the Inner Rebel worksheet.
The worksheet walks you through a process of tending and befriending resistance – learning about these parts that say no so you can care for them rather than react to them. As you get to know these parts, you gain more confidence in ‘steering the ship’ of your life and attuning to what’s needed: do I pause? Slow down? Stop? Take a break? Or move forward?
