I used to be extremely affected when I was accused of being too emotional.
(Go figure, right!? Haha!)
But now, understanding what I know about being a highly emotional person, I embrace my emotions…my tears, my joy, my anger and my frustrations.
I imagine most who come here are highly emotional, highly sensitive and deep feelers.
You’ve probably been called emotionally unstable a few times in your life, too.
I want you to know that this sadness you feel and the tears you cry are not indicative of some type of clinical depression, especially when these tears flood out of you in moments of quiet thought and pondering.
It’s normal and necessary for us to release our emotions. When we don’t, tension and stress build.
I know some may be skeptical of all my talk of yoga and meditation. But wouldn’t it be a blessing to be in a room with a bunch of highly emotional survivors who experienced what you’ve experienced? All of us meditating quietly and releasing those tears to make room for our joy?
I envision it quite often…We have smiles on our faces as the tears roll down our cheeks.
I don’t call that unstable. I call that being perfectly in tune with our emotions with the freedom to express them without shame or judgement.
