Are you angry when someone cuts in line in front of you? Probably. Most of us feel that way although we don’t show it. We cover up out feelings and say politely, “the end of the line is over there.” If you are anything like me, you feel embarrassed if you are the one who is redirected to the end of the line, especially when you didn’t notice the line in the first place.

We are all following, and expecting others to follow, lots of unwritten rules. Take turns, don’t show feelings, be polite, etc. are social rules drilled into us as children. Following these rules lets us live comfortably with lots of other people.

You also have special rules you learned in your own family. Some were spoken aloud, and some taught by example and others you figured out for yourself. Rules like don’t show certain feelings like anger or fear, always smile (no matter what else is happening), don’t talk about certain things, etc.

Some of those rules get in your way now, but it’s hard to stop following them. Each time you try you feel embarrassed or even ashamed.

The three sentences in the revolutionary process I teach you to use in “Letting It Go” can actually help you to free yourself from these old rules. Simply use the phrase “the rule that I should never show fear” or whatever the rule is, into the sentences.

I’ll show you how. Just follow the simple steps. Start now.
