“Everything will eventually work itself out.”
While the above is true, we can’t all be the Rock of Gibraltar nor should we. You can possess grace under fire, but don’t forget to give yourself permission to FREAK OUT!
Not acknowledging our feelings or simply wishing them away, only intensifies them. The longer you avoid your emotions the more you will experience problems with aggression, depression, anxiety and memory.
Be present in the moment. If you are experiencing fear, anxiety, stress or sadness, acknowledge each feeling. If you want to cry, scream, vent or shout, do it! Allow yourself to FEEL. None of these reactions make you weak, hopeless or pitiful. The key is to not stay in these emotions and let them dominate your overall well being.
Many of our struggles and challenges will not change overnight but transforming our mindset and reminding ourselves that we can overcome whatever storm we face will make all the difference in the world.
