Emotional pain! We don’t like it and we try to avoid it. We stuff those emotions away, we keep busy so we can’t feel them, we ignore them, we belittle them. Anything to avoid the pain and unpleasantness. We really want to be happy and positive, and we think that we can do this with will-power. We think we can do it by forcing ourselves to think positively. Does it work? Maybe, but only for a short time. And then it’s hard work. Those emotions are communicating strongly to you. Do you listen? What if you did? What is it that you fear? Would you fall apart? Try feeling. Give yourself some space to really feel. It might be subtle, it might be strong. Let it out and let it go.
