4 STEPS TO PROCESS YOUR EMOTIONS
On this episode join Mary as she shares 4 steps to help you process your emotions, giving you a new way to navigate emotional awareness.
Often times, we believe our emotions are bad, that it’s not safe to feel them, we are bad for feeling them, we are weak for feeling them, and we should suck it up, get over it, relax, be more positive etc.
We instinctively want to avoid feeling our feelings – or only try to chase the “good feelings.” We are ok with pleasure, joy and happiness, but not so ok with fear, grief, anger, and anxiety.
Those emotions leave us exposed and vulnerable. They are often really messy, not socially acceptable, inconvenient and just heavy. And so instead of simply being with our emotions… We try fix, quiet, get rid of, numb, avoid or overcome them. We take on various coping mechanisms… food, television, gossip, overly full schedules… it’s our way of numbing out. And not feeling.
We have to recognize that in order to be fully alive, well developed, self regulating adults – WE HAVE TO FEEL.
Emotions don’t go away. In fact, they are running the show whether we are aware of it or not. We cannot suppress, press down, or ignore our feelings forever, they will come out and if we aren’t actively processing them, they come out sideways.
So in this episode, Mary will teach you the HOW of healthy emotional processing.
