Throwing Stones — 8 Comments

  1. Great idea, Karen! And having the stones/rocks be connected in some way with the person/circumstance is important, I can see that. Thanks!

    • Thanks, Kathy. I’ve done this exercise a few times with my journal-writing groups and it made for a wonderful catharsis and follow-up conversation.

  2. I love this exercise and visual. Great idea, Karen, for really getting the garbage out. Can you imagine if I picked up the rocks, numbered them, and then put them in my purse to carry around. That’s what I often do without realizing how the negative weights me down. I’m ready to throw some rocks.

    • Great analogy, Pam, about carrying the rocks in one’s purse. That’s often what we do symbolically without realizing it. I certainly do. Time for me to throw some rocks, too!

  3. Good word. There’s something about taking an active roll in dispelling those emotions. When we think about them more times than not, the enemy wins and they remain or get worse. Been there. Good post as usual, Karen.
