We Can't Avoid the Big Waves
We can't avoid the big waves, fam.
We can’t eliminate the big emotions! We will never prevent or avoid emotion because emotions mean we are alive.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The magic pill is FEELING emotions. We can’t numb out the uncomfortable and expect to just feel happiness. The range of emotions must be embraced. When we try to suppress (which is culturally encouraged so no shame my friends) the emotions don’t disappear!
They just simmer.
They stay alive.
The take a toll on our bodies and escalate to disorder.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The good news is we can totally feel all these emotions! Our body is a tool to help us do it. It’s my favorite thing to teach. It’s not my favorite thing to do personally, but I know we gotta do it.
We gotta get comfortable being uncomfortable.
We gotta feel our feelings.⠀
Therapy and tacos for all,
