I used to run and hide from my feelings especially when I felt something that was upsetting, painful, or uncomfortable. But over time I’ve learned to accept all of my feelings. I know that in order for me to work through them, I must first honor and embrace all emotions. They are a part of me. Therefore they are meaningful and valid.
Pick a feeling that you’re afraid or ashamed of. Feeling fear, anger, or sadness is okay as long as you don’t let it define you. Embrace your emotions and remind yourself how valuable they are. Don’t invalidate your feelings. Honor them.
There are some things that must happen because they must. Things you can’t avoid, like growing up, failure, grieving, happiness, etc. But when it comes down to it, life is really about people. It’s about who you meet and who you don’t. Who forgets you and who remembers. Who soothes your bruises & helps you heal. Who you run after and who chases you down the line. It’s about who’s there when you feel alone and who’s not. Who you could talk to and who makes it hard for you to be yourself. That’s what’s important, PEOPLE.
The way they look into your eyes right before they’re gone and the way they smile right back at you when you return back home. People, it’s always about people. The ones who love you, protect you and the ones who are there for you when you need them most. I hope you never forget that. PEOPLE are precious, choose wisely.
Doesn’t matter what’s your state of mind right now, learn to face your truth & responsibilities. We need to move forward in life always, don’t lapse it.
One tiny tip; do something for your financial stability. That’s gonna lift you higher on a longer run. Progress is the only pattern of life. Don’t smash your growth by holding yourself back in any negativity.
