What are you like at sitting with difficult emotions? : Jason Fox
What are you like at sitting with emotions? It can be so easy to distract ourselves, or numb ourselves – by reaching for a drink or a device, or even by going up into our heads and getting lost in rumination.
One of my guests who told me he had to embrace sitting with emotions was the former UK Special Forces soldier and Royal Marine Commando turned explorer, adventurer, investigative journalist and TV presenter Jason Fox. Foxy has made a remarkable recovery after being discharged from the army with PTSD. After coming close to suicide, Foxy started 'looking inwards' to process his trauma.
In this episode:
- the importance of acknowledging your emotions
- What NOT to do when you wake up feeling out of sorts
- Approaching your feelings with compassion
- Foxy's definition of REAL resilience - stemming from being compassionate with yourself
