EFT for Rednecks

EFT for the disaffected straight white male…

(I know a posting like this might be pointless but no one ever accused me of being practical.)

If you need a refresher on EFT check out my EFT in a nutshell post, before you start.

As a short cut, just thump your chest like Tarzan and see how that feels while you read the affirmations below:

◦ Even though I don’t understand the world I live in anymore, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I’m so angry at everyone and everything, I accept myself.

◦ Even though being a tall white male isn’t a ticket to success anymore I accept myself.

◦ Even though I might direct my anger at people I love, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I’m scared and I can’t admit it without losing face, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I’m basically a good person but I feel so lost these days I accept myself.

◦ Even though I don’t know how the world works any more and even though the world I used to know is gone, I accept myself.

◦ Even though LGBTQs people are showing affection to their partners in public, I accept myself.

◦ Even though it’s shocking to me to see gays kissing and holding hands in public I accept myself.

◦ Even though I have to watch what I say in public now and I have to be mindful of what jokes I can make, for fear of social sanction, I accept myself.

◦ Even though the very nature of masculinity as I understood it has changed I accept myself. Even though I don’t know how to be a good man in this society any more, I accept myself.

◦ Even though the world is a very different place than what it was the day I was born many years ago, I accept myself.

◦ And even though some people like me cannot get past the fact that the world is different now, I accept myself.

◦ Even though political parties like the one I prefer to vote for tend to lead to chaos, I accept myself.

◦ Even though these parties are exercises in nostalgia, I accept myself anyway.

◦ Even though I long for a time in the past that I understand and a world that makes sense to me, I accept myself anyway.

◦ Even though it seems to be a more diverse cultural and racial society than I feel comfortable in, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I might feel more comfortable if everyone in my world looked more like me, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I have grievances and I feel angry about how my life has turned out, I accept myself.

◦ Even though life was better for me when people who are different than me had fewer opportunities than they do now , I accept myself.

◦ Even though I have no control anymore in a world where I used to have all of the control, or at least more than I have now, I accept myself.

◦ Even though it seems the world around me has moved away from me and my values, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I am not able to trust anybody, anymore, I accept myself.

◦ Even though it seems that the world is turning against people like me I accept myself.

◦ Even though the status quo today feels unacceptable to me, I choose to accept myself any way.

◦ Even though I am dissatisfied by my world and I choose to vote for other people with the values that I support I accept myself.

◦ Even though I may be recklessly voting for a leader who could destroy the country but I figure, “what’s the risk of throwing a dart at the wall and seeing if this does something different?”, I accept myself anyway.

◦ Even though I’d rather vote for an asshole who is bad for my country and I don’t care anymore because of my anger and frustrations, I accept myself.

◦ Even though I’m very angry because life hasn’t given me all that I think I deserve I accept myself.

◦ Even though I’m worried the world is turning away from people like me,

◦ Even though I’m right to be worried about it,

◦ Even though the world iis turning away, I accept myself anyway. I’m doing the best I can.
