Friends Who Write Good Blogs!

Thursday, May 07, 2020

Self examinations overwhelm me, do they you? A friend of mine wrote the most amazing blog on examining your feelings rather than stuffing them with food [at least that's what I took away from the blog] she said that if we allow ourselves to "feel" what we do [rather than to deny them] which I do.. that they will lose their power. It dawned on me, that though I over analyze everything, I've never taken the time to process my eating for comfort.

I think I'm afraid to let myself feel my emotions as I'm already a wreck at times.. and do I want to give into a more emotional state of being??? emoticon Maybe I need to face the dark so I can see the dawn. emoticon

    Self examination does take work. Hard work. My realization opened up as part of my Spark journey, some of the best work I've done in life was on myself. I love what HopeM61 says, "I imagine myself as my broken child being reparented by my adult self. My adult self helps my inner child learn a healthy way to work through my emotions." Great way to see it. emoticon

    I may be outside the 'fold' but I do not allow myself to 'wallow' in feelings if they are contrary to peace, happiness, and feeling overall good. I see no point---so I sometimes remember the words of my parents who would order: SNAP out of it!" …. It worked! Sometimes we just need to 'take the bull by the horns.'
    (I always try to look at the bright side, and will always find something to be happy about).
