Are you one of those people who try to push aside their feelings?
I see so many people, and my clients, trying deny, distract, distort or do anything that can help them to numb out because they don’t want to feel their emotions.
The truth is, we’re just not taught how to feel our feelings!
So it can feel uncomfortable, and you just don’t know what do with them.
Today, I want to help you redefine emotional wellness, so that you can learn exactly what to do when you start feeling that way.
One of my mentors Rhonda Britten says, “Honor your feelings, act on your commitments.”
This took a ton of practice for me, but what I know now is that every single feeling has an intention for you.
Even fear and anxiety have your best interest at heart, they just only know how to show up as themselves.
What would it look like if we defined emotional wellness as how to live with our emotions?
To look at what they are trying to give us or say to us, so that we can move through them.
To embrace all those feelings as loving us, not trying to hurt us.
And the more you embrace, the less you have to push away. And the more you can be your true self, and choose yourself.
