Embracing Emotions

I just want anyone out there reading this to know that sometimes I’ll write angry posts, sometimes I’ll write sad posts, sometimes I’ll write happy posts, and sometimes I’ll write fearful posts.  You will see it all.  When you’re going through a spiritual awakening, in order to get to your true self, you have to acknowledge and…’release’…all the pain…the negativity inside that has built up.  You go through all kinds of emotions.  For me, I always repressed my anger.  Since I was a child.  I never realized I did that though .  That’s the whole point of a spirtitual awakening.  To bring awareness or consciousness.  I repressed my anger because I hate confrontation and also because I am a people-pleaser (a habit I’m learning to break).  I don’t like people to be mad at me and not talk to me. But once you start loving yourself (something else I have learned and am still learning to do on this journey),  you learn to do what’s best for you and not care what other people think.  Or at least that’s what I’m finding.  Anyway, I have a lot of built up anger.  I write on this blog to express that.  I also write in a journal.  It’s just good to embrace all emotions.  I mean don’t go out and hurt people if you’re angry.  Find a creative outlet for it.  I write.  Some run. Some box.  Some draw.  Whatever helps you release that anger.  Without going to jail. Or committing murder. Just like sadness. I wrote something about that a few days ago.  We as a society, I believe, shame sadness.  Embrace it!  Everyone feels it, they just don’t express it. I promise you are not alone.

  1. Great post! I embrace all of my emotions. But I find myself being on the go so much that I don’t get to journal my thoughts as much as I’d like. So I’ve started recording my thoughts on my voice memo app on my phone. Many times I have myself laying in bed or riding home from work and I just talk to myself and record it on my phone. So times when I need a little encouragement I listen back at my thought process months ago and I listen to how far I have come and feel inspired from my own voice. Some may think it’s crazy but I find it rewarding.
