Woke up feeling sad and pissed off. And I’m not going to ‘fix’ it.
Sometimes (most times, I would argue), you just need to let the feelings be instead of judging them and calling them wrong.
Trying to manage and change your emotional experience all the time not only is exhausting, but also sends a signal to yourself that you’re not ok as you are.
That there’s something wrong with you for feeling the way you feel.
And even when you have no clue why you’re feeling that way, it’s best to practice acceptance of what is.
It’s a practice of self-love, no matter how you feel.
And the other gift it brings, asides from confidence, freedom and enjoyment, is that in letting yourself feel the feeling, you gain insights on yourself and your patterns that you wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.
Don’t chop yourself off from your feelings.
It’s inflicting self-violence and it only leads to fragmentation and disconnection.
So take a deep breath, and feel what’s there to feel without judgment.
I promise you’ll feel massive amounts of self-love, gratitude, and love for people and life.
