Day 27-Often Hard on Myself

I unconsciously think feelings I have are bad or wrong. In the meditation I imagined anger that I had about something that happened in my daughter’s class. I had thought I was angry about it. But when I meditated, I noticed fear was present. In fact, it was mainly fear. In the situation, I was unsure of myself and felt like I hadn’t acted in the way I should have acted. I was worried that others would judge me. During the meditation I saw the experience as painful. I saw I was suffering and that others suffer in the same way. I would benefit greatly from bringing this practice into my daily life. I want to remember it more instead of leaping to self-hatred or aversion to an emotion. I am happy to try to bring this into my daily practice and life.
