In our lifetime, our emotions will either protect us or hurt us, but what we all have in common are the emotional ties that bind us together, it doesn’t matter what the emotion is.
It’s just important we remain positive, so that we can move on from just existing in our lives. We can never make any positive contributions when we’re being negative and living behind a facade, as we unconsciously continue to blame ourselves for all that we’ve failed at will always carry guilt.
In my own case, I wanted others to take the blame for not helping me with my disability. I wanted others to listen, I wanted a voice. I was both frustrated and angry. When I wasn’t happy, I was being quiet and when I wasn’t being all of those things, deep down I was the most kind and caring person and those caring qualities are still with me today.
It’s massively important we learn to use expression, to talk about how we feel. Talking about the things that matter will help us keep the mind safe. It is the most powerful tool we have. Our emotions need to go somewhere and if they’re not being expressed, they’re going inside.
By ignoring our emotions, they will start to interfere with our health and will contribute to long-term illness. The word disease is made up of two words ‘dis-ease.’ That is why it’s so important to be at ease with ourselves. We need to have a voice and use it.
