    J. YesThe truth is safe to feel. When I deny my feelings, I deny a true part of myself. This hurts & then I blame others or even my own emotions for the hurt.

    I want to be more powerful. Score 5 points. POINTS:

    K. Yes I structure the realities in my mind and I am the cause of my pain. If I’m in pain, my thinking is in error. My temporary low energy and negativity will surface and are safe to feel and release. These conditions are temporary if I breathe and release them.
