SO many feelings.
Like really. I didn’t even know. Yes, I know I sound like a total Los Angeles dwelling woman versus a Chicago born and raised woman. But I am an Los Angelan woman? Is that a thing?
I have SO many feelings: Friendships, Life transitions, Work, Romantic Relationships, Career, Dogs, Family, More Family, and Finances.
You know that saying, “Feelings are meant to be felt.” Well I’m attempting to own that shit. Literally. It’s a new thing for me.
My normal is…
I want to be the rock. The rock that holds space for everyone else’s feeling and then shoves my feelings underneath the rock until they suffocate and die. I know… so poetic.
I almost feel like a teenage girl again, but with a lot more insight and control. In a way it’s super beautiful and sad. But this world we live in makes it difficult to feel feelings in an appropriate manner.
You’re either as cold as ice or a hot mess of emotions that can’t be controlled.
It’s taken me a long time to get here.
- Because it is easier not feel.
- I know how to deal with other people’s feeling and not my own
- No one teaches you emotional intelligence
So I am telling you to feel and giving you permission feel. And myself too.
Journal your feelings and share them with a close friend. It will make you feel better. And it’s okay, feelings change.
Own the night you sit in your bathtub and eat dinner listening to Dashboard Confessional. On repeat.
Own the day you dance around naked to Justin Bieber. Love Yourself. Love someone else.
Feelings just like life are temporary but they are meant to felt just like life is meant to be lived.
There’s No Better Time Than Now,
