Hopefully by now you saw that next week my free Expressing Emotions Interviews will be sent out! But it’s only getting sent out to the people who add their name and e-mail at www.shaynamahoney.com/emotions
So, the election is over. I know don't about you, but I am feeling some intense emotions such as sadness, fear and frustration. Now more than ever, we need to stand together and spread kindness however possible. Believe me, this isn't a political post, but just a place to say that I am with you if you are feeling emotional.
If you are a sensitive person, prone to anxiety (just like me!), this event and things in your life may have drained your energy and made you want to numb your emotions…
I know it’s so easy to get caught up in thoughts like this:
I feel sad, so let me eat a cookie.
I am angry, so let me yell at my husband.
I am anxious, so let me hide in my bedroom.
I am super stressed out, so I’m going to tell myself how much myself and other people suck.
You see, those aren’t actually healthy ways to express our emotions. Usually none of those things actually make you feel better, now do they?
I have needed to cry over the past few days and had to be okay with releasing these emotions. Seriously, if you need to cry, just do it.
Feeling sad? Grab a tissue and shed some tears.
Feeling angry? Write in your journal or punch a pillow.
Feeling anxious? Take 3 deep breaths. Yes, right now.
Feeling stressed out? Go for a walk outside.
At others times in my life I have known what it’s like to struggle with repressing feelings, health issues, being prescribed an antidepressant and thinking there was something wrong with me and my constant anxiety and fear...
I don't have any magic words to heal the pain from your life but I do feel I am here to give you hope into how it can be different. (Only if you want it to be, of course)
