Let It Be
When we go through difficult times, an array of uncomfortable emotions arise. Because they are uncomfortable and potentially painful, we tend to want to try and control and push them away. But, if we don’t allow ourselves to feel those emotions, they can get bottled up and lash out in other forms down the road of life. For some reason, I have passed judgement on myself if I have felt a certain emotion for too long, as if there is a time limit to your emotions. Pushing these emotions away because they are painful, will not make them go away any sooner. Emotions change and will change in their own due time.
‘Breathing in....acceptance. Breathing out...letting go of resistance’. At first, repeating these words was a little uncomfortable. However, after awhile, it became comforting somehow to repeat these words. It is okay to feel what I am feeling and there is no reason to judge myself. I just need to remember to let it be.
