Fully Express Them

Emotions are one of the most beautiful parts of a human being and they should not be denied, suppressed or judged. 

Many of us have given a great deal of our energy and power away to our emotions because we have not allowed ourselves to fully express them. 

We end up holding onto them for years giving them great power to control us. When we allow them to be expressed we allow them the freedom to be released. If we deny our emotions we end up fragmenting ourselves creating all kinds of alter egos that get stored in our energy body.  Sabrina Reber

Total penny dropping moment yesterday

One of the things that moves us out of situation where it seems difficult to let go is....wait for it

admitting our feelings and telling the truth to ourselves!

That's it folks!

By now you know, many of the solutions are simple, we just make it complicated.

Admit the fact that you still want what is not in your best intersts

maybe it is admitting that you want the person who is not ready to commit

maybe it is admitting that you want the job only because you are afraid that you may not find another one, that your bills cannot be paid

maybe it's admitting that you love those potato chips too much

Whatever it is!

Admit it to yourself and tell the truth

You, denying the truth will keep you there!  You denying it will prevent the moving forward.

when you admit and accept, get still! You may not have to make a decision at once. 

When you admit and accept, feel the feelings, cry, week, scream, stay in your PJ's if you must

Regroup and then come again
