Feel Your Feelings by Jaylynn Davis
When is the last time you allowed yourself to feel your feelings? It’s okay to let yourself be sad, let yourself be mad, or even let yourself be happy. As long as you move past those negative emotions and process them to figure out why you feel the way you do, it is okay. A lot of us were taught to push away our feelings and just “toughen up” as we were growing up. That is an unhealthy coping mechanism. Allowing your feelings to build up will inevitably lead to an explosion of emotion. We have to learn to fully comprehend our feelings so that we can understand why the circumstances are affecting us so much. Having feelings does not make you weak. Being able to process your feelings and control what ignites an emotion in you is the ultimate power.
Allowing yourself to appreciate the happiness that you are feeling in your life is never wrong. Too often, people believe that positive things in their lives are too good to be true. We tend to believe that we don’t deserve the happiness that we receive. Instead of immediately resorting to this negativity, take the time to appreciate the positive attributes of your life. Take the time to be thankful for what you have in front of you. Allow yourself to feel that happiness, you deserve it!
