I was talking to a friend the other day and she was expressing frustration at being sad. Feeling down and fighting depression. As wonderful as life is – and it surely IS…there are times when you’re just gunna be sad. Allow the feeling. It’s when we deny ourselves to feel and squash things down inside that they fester and grow into something bigger. There is something to be learned in every moment and in every emotion. There is no ‘bad’ or ‘good’ or ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to feel. Just feel whatever the heck it is and allow it to happen.
Bonus package – I have often found that ‘darkness’ proceeds a time of exponential growth. So let the tears fall if they need too…let the laughter bubble up and pour forth…stomp your feet….dance…sing….FEEL. Allow yourself to LIVE!
