Finding emotional balance takes commitment like anything else. No matter how much we may have been conditioned to not show emotions or acknowledge our feelings, we are still emotional beings. If fact, our emotions are like messengers. The give us information about the choices we are making and if any needs are going unmet. Our emotions try to get our attention over and over AND over. It is key to listen to our emotions. Listening and honoring them helps us overcome depression, anxiety, grief and loss.
Oftentimes in the past I found myself having a not so good feeling, but then I would try to push it down because there were other feelings going on at the same time that were wonderful. What I’ve learned it is that there was a message the not so great feeling was trying to convey. I ignored it again and again until one day it got SUPER loud. I got the message about the change I needed to make.
I’d like to ask you if you have been feeling something important but pushing it down also?
This is what I’ll be talking about on this week’s episode of RE-ID TV. We need to not ignore our feelings if we want emotional balance.
