Let Go Of Emotions That No Longer Serve You
Let’s face it, life is hard. Everyone goes through their own battles and experiences that trigger hard emotions such as grief, sorrow, regret, resentment, and sadness. These emotions are not negative, they teach us how to grow and force us to learn a whole lot. They only become negative when they fester and stop us from enjoying the things you once loved. Unresolved emotions that create stress and inner turmoil can even manifest as physical symptoms. It is time to let go, and everyone will do this differently. Maybe you need to sit down and have a challenging talk with a friend or loved one about something that needs to be resolved. Another idea to help release emotions is journaling or writing down your feelings. These types of emotions can make us dizzy and unclear in our thoughts and decision making. Writing it down can help you gain clarity and process the feelings. Putting your thoughts on paper, and getting them out, will give you some headspace. Sometimes we begin to feel a negative emotion and shut it out completely, never going beneath the surface of it because it may be dark and uncomfortable. Try sitting with it, feel it fully, let that feeling move through you so you can honour its existence and then be free of it. Once you have allowed yourself to let go of such feelings, you’ll notice how much lighter you feel.
