Feel it all

When you experience difficult emotions, there can be a tendency to distract yourself from them, shove them to one side, or simply brush them under the carpet. Wherever you put those feelings, they will continue to bubble away, until you acknowledge them – and feel them.

Once you learn to face your feelings and sort them out, you can focus on them one at a time. This will help you to develop a better understanding of your reactions and your needs.

As you feel your feelings, they lose their power and the grip that they hold on you – they pass. But this can only happen if you acknowledge them. No coating over negativity with positivity. Acknowledge them first. Whatever you are feeling today, especially the difficult emotions on this Blue Monday, acknowledge them. Feel them.

Ask yourself…
“What am I feeling?”
“Where in my body am I feeling it?”

No need to fix them.
No judging or self-criticism for whatever you are feeling.
Just feel.
Let the emotions run their course.
Let them go… like letting go of a balloon full of air before you tie it.
