Getting hooked isn’t allowing you to get unhooked.

Instead of getting hooked into your story, your tantrum, your suffering, get curious. What happened before this particular moment’s experience of falling into the same pattern? Ask with curiosity instead of blame. What would happen if you let go of the story, the tantrum, the expectation that creates the suffering you find yourself in? What would happen if you just watched yourself continue through either your usual way of being or if you changed it? Whichever path you take, what would happen if you owned it, and decided next time you’ll do it the same way or differently, but without the story, the tantrum, the expectation of how perfect you (or someone else) need to be? Take a deep breath. What’s the worst thing that can happen?
