Feel your feelings

I spent most of my life shoving my feelings down.⁣⁠⁣⁠If I felt sad, I pushed it down. Angry, scared, hurt, traumatized... down the feelings went.⁣⁠⁣⁠Then a few things happened recently that triggered all the shoved-down emotions to bubble up to the surface. They spilled out so hard until my body reacted by getting sick. Pushed to its limits, the vertigo hit.⁣⁠⁣⁠The underlying cause may have been an injury from a decades-old car accident, but what brought my symptoms to the surface was the chaos (and subsequent anxiety) I’d been dealing with over the past 4 years since moving to Maui.⁣⁠⁣⁠And for that I'm grateful.⁣⁠⁣⁠Because if I hadn't been put in a state of mental turmoil, I never would have started the healing process of both my emotional pain and my upper cervical injury.⁣⁠⁣⁠I learned to really feel my feelings, even though it was one of the hardest things I've had to do. And what came out of that work was clarity and a sense of transformation. I still have more to process, but I definitely grew a ton last year.⁣⁠⁣⁠Maybe this speaks to you, too? If so, I encourage you to:⁣⁠⁣⁠Feel your feelings as they happen. Reach down to the ones you've buried. Process them. You will feel a sense of inner peace.⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠#ichoosebeauty #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessisreal #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #wordstoremember #wordstoinspire #thoughtsinwords #wordsfromtheheart #wordsoflife #wordsofinspiration #wordsofwisdom #lifelesson #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalthoughts
