Sop running away from negative emotions! … They are a sign that something need to be integrated.
In this society, we are addicted to what makes us feel good instantly, numbing with drugs, alcohol, work, shopping, social media … It may mask it for a little while but not very long, and it starts all over again. It is actually never about the activity itself but how you use it. Bring consciousness to it and notice when you are escaping yourself. Are you in the present moment receiving energy or are you trying to run away from the emotional flame burning inside?
Emotions need integration. Sit with them and listen, they want to be felt in your body, not intellectualized. You may realize this feeling has been present for a very long time. It is yours and has very little to do with the external reality you are living in. By bringing changes to yourself, you will bring changes to this world. I wonder how this world would be if people were clearing themselves before interacting with others?
“It takes a very strong individual to sit with themselves, calm their storms, and heal of their issues without trying to bring someone else into that chaos. Your journey into self love is just that – and you are doing it.” Calming the storm. Londrelle.
