Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

We've all been there. Stuck in the mental chatter of our mind. Going through many different questions, scenarios, what if's, but's and maybe's. This happens us all. The thing is though, when we live in this space constantly, we become frazzled, burnt out, anxious and stressed to the max.
When we are in our head's, we are disconnected from our body and from the present moment. We can be living in another time, space and reality (whether past or future). When we are caught in our thoughts, it's extremely difficult to feel centered and grounded, as our thoughts come and go so quick. The solution is connecting back to our body, so we can drop into the present, and focus on what truly needs our attention right now.
A simple, quick and easy way to do this is by taking a few moments and placing your attention in your hands. Close you eyes, place your hands on your lap, and bring your awareness to the inside of your hands. Notice any sensations you feel, any tingling, energy flowing in your hands, any pulses; and for a few minutes breathe into this awareness and energy of the inside of your hands.
Notice how calming it feels?
We cannot be in our head and focus on our body at the same time. Energy flows where attention goes. So the next time you are feeling all caught up in your thoughts and that non-stop mental chatter, take a few moments and do this practice. Repeat it again and again and notice the shift in your overall energy and state. I bet you will feel so much calmer and aware.
Summary of Mindful Practice:
- Close your eyes.
- Place your hands on your lap (palms facing upwards).
- Put your attention on the INSIDE of your hands (whatever that means for you).
- Notice any sensations – tingling, moving of energy, pulsing etc.
- Take a few deep breaths, jeeping your attention on the inside of your hands.
- Feel calmer and out of the mental chatter!
