“forcing myself not to flinch” —2006

Lately I’ve had cause to learn just how bad I am at not flinching, physically, when I’m anticipating objects/water sprayed in my face. Even when I know it’s safe. No surprise that apparently I’m not very good at forcing myself not to flinch emotionally, especially when I have no assurance of safety.
So is it prudence? or is it paralyzing fear?

Really, this consideration is an exercise in observing the problem through indirectly similar occurrences, and not really a practical address of the actual relevant matters, which are probably best solved through achieving quite separate well-being and inner peace.

Back to breathing; I’ll try that with the water spray next time.
