Our emotions carry us away to places of self-doubt and shame when we deny them.
When we deny our emotions, we clog our intuition.
Stop denying them. Stop trying to turn your frown upside down. And stop trying to hide your joy when you are joyous.
Embrace your highly empathic nature. Embrace feeling deeply. Embrace your true nature.
Don’t keep trying to defend yourself against those labels people give you:
>> “You’re too sensitive.”
>> “You seem emotionally unstable.”
>> “You need to calm down.”
>> “You might want to see a counselor about your outbursts.”
>> “You’re crazy!”
The truth behind all of these labels is that they come from a place of fear. Your emotions and ability to release them scares the hell out of people.
So what do we do about it?
For starters, we don’t apologize for our feelings. Our feelings come from a highly intuitive place of understanding and knowing.
So we keep sharing what we feel, despite the fact there may be zero statistical evidence backing us up. And when we see another who bravely shares, we back that person up. We don’t cower and hide behind the pack.
We want things to change, right? Well, the only way to see change in the world is to exert our powerful emotions.
Once each of us starts to share, the statistics become very clear and valid.
Look what has happened in communities like this one? We started talking about things no one wanted to believe was true, and now we have numbers that prove that what we have seen and felt all along are absolutely valid and absolutely real.
Never underestimate your gut and the domino effect and power it can invoke to unearth the voice of a collective gut.
A collective gut changes the world.
