Tapping Script for When You Feel Hurt
or Wronged by Someone
For a downloadable PDF of this script, click here.
It’s an unavoidable fact of life that sometimes other people cause us stress and/or pain. Maybe they hurt us intentionally, maybe they do it by accident, or maybe they do it because they're hurting, and in the confusion caused by their own suffering, they end up causing us to suffer, too. Whatever the reason or reasons, it's no fun, and sometimes it can hurt us deeply, as well as get into our heads in ways that interfere with our ability to make it through the day with any semblance of peace.
With that in mind, I created this tapping script, so that if and when you find yourself at the mercy of painful thoughts and feelings about another person, you can sit down and use these statements to tap yourself free. As always, modify or skip any statements that aren't a fit for you and your situation, and also add statements that come to you as you're tapping so that you can release as much negative emotion as possible about the person in question.
HOW TO USE THIS SCRIPT
As with all of my tapping scripts, these statements can be used as is, or modified in any way that makes them resonate more fully with your experience. Some of them will fit for you, and some will not. Just use the ones that fit your experience and have an emotional charge.
You may notice that when you start tapping on these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can then turn into new tapping statements, which will then give rise to still more thoughts and feelings, which you can use to create additional tapping statements, and so on. I call this following the thread, and it’s a very efficient way to heal and release a lot of painful feelings in a short amount of time.
If, when working with this tapping script, you get stuck, aren't getting the results you'd like to get, or would simply like to have the support and guidance of an experienced professional, I recommend working with a trained EFT practitioner.
