What are emotions? Have you ever asked yourself that question before? Have you even considered this question before now? Unfortunately, most of us have not ponder this question: What are emotions? We all know we have them and yet we do not put much thought into our emotions unless our emotions are causing us issues in our lives. And then we usually either try to ignore our emotions which leads us to becoming stuck in things like anxiety and depression. And then when we move into a “darker place,” we then try to ignore them even more. Only to find out our lives do not get better by ignoring our emotions, things only get worse until a “blow up” or “meltdown” of some sort happens to us. And then after the “blow up” or “meltdown” happens, we seem to be “okay” until……….we start to experience our emotions that become hard to ignore and we start the pattern all over again until……we have a “blow up” or a “meltdown” once more.
Any of this sound familiar? I think for most of us at some point in our lives we have all experienced this cyclical pattern of emotions. And until we learn something different to do with our emotions other than ignoring them, we will all repeat this emotional cyclical pattern. It is usually at our lowest point in life that we ask ourselves,”Why do I keep feeling this way?” and until we learn about our emotions and how to deal with them in other ways besides ignoring them, we will not be able to answer the question of “Why do I keep feeling this way?” And we will stay stuck in our life in our anxiety or depression.
Namaste, my friends.
