Our emotions will either protect us or hurt us, but what we all have in common are the ties that emotionally bind us together, no matter what the emotion is.
It’s massively important we remain positive so that we can move on from just existing in our lives. We can never make any positive contributions to life when we’re being negative all the time living behind a façade, as we continue to blame ourselves for everything we’ve failed at.
In my own case, I wanted my parents to take the blame for not supporting me around my disability. I wanted them to listen, I wanted and needed a voice. I was frustrated and angry. When I wasn’t happy, I was quiet, and when I wasn’t being those things, deep down I was the most kind and caring person and those caring qualities are still with me today.
It is massively important to learn to talk about how we feel. Talking about the things that matter will help us keep our mind safe. Our emotions are the most powerful tool we have. If our emotions are not being expressed, they’re going inside.
Ignoring our emotions means they will interfere with our health and contribute to long-term illness. The word disease is made up of two words ‘dis-ease.’ That is why it’s so important for us to be at ease with ourselves.
