“If you don’t manage your emotions, they will eventually manage you”
– Deborah Rozman
I have recently noticed how some people are so afraid of their own emotions! They see it as this big scary monster that they would much rather suppress and ignore.. and pretend that everything is ok. When deep down, well it’s clearly not!
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” – Sigmund Freud
It is crucial that we process our buried emotions for our own health and sanity.
I won’t lie, it is uncomfortable dealing with negative emotions. No body wants to feel them or admit to some of our deeper resentments, jealousy, bitterness or whatever else is hidden in the dark. It is much easier (in the beginning) to ignore them, push them down and deny you feel anything so you can carry on with life.
Our emotions are the language of our Soul.
This is how our soul communicates with us. Our emotions tell us what we believe to be true, where our boundaries lie and where we are out of alignment with our personal integrity.
All you have to do is listen, acknowledge it’s presence, allow them to be there without judgment and get the insight or lesson you are being given in that moment.
I know.. it’s easier said than done!
If you are struggling to process some of your emotions and need support, it would be an honour to be your emotional midwife and give birth to some of those bottled up old wounds that need to be set free!
I can promise you one thing, it will be worth it.
