Feeling my emotions, instead of STUFFING, IGNORING, DENYING, or PRETENDING THEY DON’T EXIST… is hard for me.
Our society hardwires into our minds that to FEEL… to SHOW human emotion, makes us weak. Which hurts. And we have to ignore a LARGE part of who we are. What makes us human. It’s like taking a knife and severing part of our identity off.
Which never ends well.
So, I started a new YouTube channel and I’m trying something new. I guess I’m trying to help others with the thing I know I need.
A series of videos, every Tuesday, on helping us develop the #1 healthiest coping skill – being able to NAME our emotions. But how do we bloody do that WHEN WE’VE STUFFED WHAT WE FEEL TO THE POINT THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE FEEL?!?!
That’s the point of the series. So if you’re interested in emotions and other uncomfortable self-awareness, here’s the first video in my series, where I break down what we’ll be learning, what process we should do for at least 30 days, and how I’m going to help, starting next Tuesday.
I thought I’d share it here, because, well, this has been the place I come to BE emotional. And I thought maybe you’d find this helpful. *shrug*
