The emotion "sadness" is a normal experience and it is very important to allow it to happen! Suppressing will not only cause stress to the mind but will also disrupt our bodies systems.
Webster' s Defenition
a : affected with or expressive of grief or unhappiness : downcast
b (1) : causing or associated with grief or unhappiness : depressing sad news (2) : worthless
Disappointments, death, feeling helpless and Sadness happens! Who wants to allow sadness into our lives? Sadness is...Hopefully...a passageway to better times! We need to learn...and... educate others that allowing emotions, including sadness, are normal. Like most of you, I see no happy in the times I feel sad. The ONLY " good" I see is the relief a good cry can bring and the HOPE that happier times are soon to come. Anthony and I both realize how important it is to find a quiet safe place to experience our emotions. Having someone to share our emotions with has really helped us.
Story time 📚
Recently, on one of my emotional release days...
I often write out my emotions. I had just completed a sadness journal and just experienced a good cry. Another emotion...ANGER...came rushing in. 😡 just then... before I could process this new emotion...a loud noise shook me from my thoughts...a poor delivery person came to my door. I went to see what had happened and I could not open the door. They not only potentially broke something inside the package but lodged the 📦 so I could no even open the door. Unfortunately for him... he was still sitting in his truck... maybe it was not a safe place for HIM... but I felt so much better after writing and getting to address the current situation. I know what you are thinking....so did I then have to deal with emotions of regret? Not for very long! It's all about BALANCE...and I will be working on that for the rest of my life.....
In the past, most of us have learned to keep emotions to ourselves in fear of someone judging us. As I mentioned earlier, it is important to know your audience when sharing. I am not saying that an emotion should be made public or shared with just anyone...but...
lately... I have seen some really cool things happening on social media. We always here about the awful news... but...many people have been opening up more about there emotions and loses and I have seen some "real healing" come from this. Friends and family from all over the world 🌎 are offering ENCOURAGEMENT, SUPPORT & LOVE ❤️
🙏It's the little things.... we all want to know we are LOVED❤️
