Monday Motivation to Feel Uncomfortable Emotions
What happened yesterday really reminded me of something important. As frustrating and uncomfortable as it is to allow myself to feel the grief that accompanies the loss of both my dad and my sister, I have to or these painful emotions will simply stay with me and fester within my heart.
I used to do whatever I could to numb and distract myself from feeling emotional discomfort. My exercise addiction and disordered eating grew from my continuous attempts to push uncertainty and fear to the deep recesses of my mind. I’m not going to lie, I still don’t like these emotions, in fact I hate them. However, they are a necessary evil and the crying and crabbiness that result from them are also entirely necessary. The process of feeling these emotions actually allows me to move forward and heal.
What I encourage you to do sometime today is think of painful emotions that you might be avoiding.
Do you find that you have a hard time sitting quietly with your thoughts?
Do you have a general feeling of unease that you can’t shake?
If so, take some time to write, meditate, talk to yourself – whatever you need to do to bring these emotions to the surface so that they can be resolved and you can move forward in a happier and healthier way.
I would love to hear your thoughts on uncomfortable emotions. Do you have suggestions for anyone struggling to let these feelings come to the surface?”
