Feelings are meant to be felt…..

Feelings are meant to be felt...
The last time I checked we were all human.
We make mistakes, we are vulnerable, we will hit rock bottom.
When feelings arise within you it is IMPORTANT that you feel them. Don’t try to shove them away & ignore them & pretend they aren’t there. The only person you will be fooling is yourself. NOW WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT? That will only work for a limited amount of time before you snap on someone or have a personal breakdown.
AGAIN, feelings are meant to be felt. So cry, be sad, be happy, be angry, be jealous, be shocked…….FEEL THOSE INTESE CRAZY feelings and then LET THEM GO!
One thing us human beings have a hard time with is letting things go. We can let go of everything BUT a grudge. LOL! Holding on, ONLY STOPS us from growing. Holding on stops us from developing our beautiful journey called, LIFE. Something that works for me and many others I know is writing about it. One time I wrote a letter to someone as if I was going to give it to them one day. So I wrote all my feelings in it & then instead of giving it to them I burnt it. It was my way of releasing it.
GONE. Done. Over with.
You can still be strong and still feel. Just because you shed a tear does not make you a weak person. It shows you are real & human. Like Reese Witherspoon said, ” I don’t believe in perfection, I don’t believe there is such a thing” & I must say I agree with her 100%. Think about it. If we were perfect, we would no longer be learning. Life would be so BORING!
Get real with yourself. You deserve your own HONESTY!
If you can’t be honest with yourself don’t expect others to be honest with you.
