So many times we get hurt or hurt others without really realizing why we do it or why we feel the way we feel. Then we end up brushing out those feelings and essentially sweep them quickly under the rug, trying to distract ourselves in any way possible. This is not the best way to handle it, as eventually those feelings will come back up, but with even more intensity than before.
The simple reality is, feelings need time. They need time to be processed, honestly felt, truthfully analyzed, ad wholeheartedly expressed.
"Just like children, emotions heal when they are heard and validated." ~ Jill Bolte Taylor
When you begin to get into your feelings from a loving perspective, you stop pitying yourself, you stop blaming others, and you stop moving in endless cycles of doubt and confusion. Remember, to love yourself is the greatest revolution, because you are actively taking the steps to listen to YOU, your heart, your pain, and your insecurities. It is OK to listen, observe, and witness all that you are feeling.Write it down, share it with someone close, and let those feelings be heard. Let your emotions guide you so that you can find your soul.
