Allow yourself to be emotional.
Don’t hold it in. Scream, yell, cry, dance, sing, laugh…all expressions of energy that need releasing.
It’s important to find ways to release your emotions that do not harm or hurt other people.
My favorite? Allowing myself to cry my eyes out at something completely random at any given moment (diaper commercials, sappy movies, mean comments) without attaching to the trigger. It doesn’t really matter why I’m feeling what I feel right now, but it’s important that I feel it and allow it to be here.
Or in the case of this morning: coming home to one of the dogs having completely destroyed our front door, for no reason that I can see at all. Gave me a good five minutes of letting out my emotions…at the door.
The point is: crying is good. Yelling is good. Sitting with your emotions is good.
Hiding everything we feel away until we become bitter/frustrated/sick or simply start overreacting every time things don’t go our way because of the excess emotional energy we carry on our shoulders…not good.
