THE LIVELY

BLOG

The latest podcasts, vlogs & blog posts.

When I first got to Bali, I expected to feel like I was floating on Cloud 9 in the land of smoothie bowls, spiritual celebrations, ecstatic dance, and yoga classes.

However, if the first few days of my trip here were to be summed up in a title for a book chapter, my new friend, Rissa, suggested it would read: “Anger & Loneliness in a Place of Zen.”

In today’s episode, I’m sharing what my experience of these two emotions has been like, and how I finally processed an emotion I often try to ‘spiritually bypass’ altogether… anger.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is looking to process difficult emotions, or is experiencing loneliness.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT

 

  • What triggered once I got to Bali and what I learned about anger and loneliness.

  • The reasons my loneliness has been coming up and how I’m learning to awareness and compassion for it and facing it instead of avoiding it.

  • What correlation I’ve been seeing between my approach to loneliness and how people face fear of the unknown and uncertainty.

  • Why anger is essentially a stepping stone from a place of very low energy to a place of higher, positive energy.

    I really enjoyed this, Jess. I definitely relate to avoiding anger (and confrontation in general), also stemming from some childhood baggage of playing “family peacekeeper.” Although I do believe there is good to be found from our “zen,” diplomatic natures 😉 I also know this repressed anger impacts my life and relationships, and I’m working on figuring it out and addressing it. In listening to your recent podcasts (which I love!), I’ve often thought it would be interesting to really acknowledge and confront the darker sides of the human mind – anger, jealousy, inadequacy, lack of fulfillment, etc. Thank you for sharing so vulnerably, I’m so happy you’re going there 🙂
