I tend to be that person who holds stuff in….although I have my moments of lashing out too. Actually after writing that out and reading it over made me realize – I do not know how to handle my emotions well. I am usually the person to hold things in. It’s who I am, who I have always been. But by having a blog has really helped me learn overtime to understand my feelings and have a way of letting some of my emotions out.
My girl, Heather, I know is a fan of Gabrielle Bernstein, which I am too. I was watching one of her videos the other day (video below) and felt it was a good one to talk about here.
I love her 3 steps to handle your feelings; one being praying first when something goes wrong. Bring positivity to the situation will help set the tone and hopefully makes talking about feelings better. Sounds easy , right?
#findingME is not only about looking inside me, but also how I react to the outside world. How I react to emotions. How I forgive.
Looking back at my life thus far, I do see a pattern in my behaviors. In the past I was horrible at expressing my feelings. I got really good at covering up how I was feeling. I had a hard time actually forgiving people, even though I would tell them, “I am fine” or “we are fine.”
Anyone else use those classic words?
I do feel as I get older and meet new inspiring people, I have learned to forgive more quickly. I am slowing learning to say what it is that I am feeling.
Funny how I can say YES to some of those reasons. Number 6 being a big one.
I will work on my emotions. I will learn to understand and express my feelings. I will forgive. I will break my habit of holding things in. I will pray before speaking. I will listen to what I am feeling and not let others change me.
