I Need Some Air.
Have you ever walked into a room that felt stuffy. Like someone has not opened up the windows since 1995. The air feels thick. It feels like you cannot breath? It feels stale.
And all you can think is, I need some air.
When air is trapped between the four walls of a room, confinded and unable to move, it begins to grow baterial that causes the air to no longer have it's freshness. It becomes stale. It becomes toxic to all living thing in it's surrounding, even you. It is toxic to your health.
Well, our emotions is like the air. It needs to be in an environment where it can be expressed without being confinded to just thoughts that will eventually drive you crazy. Our emotions are meant to gives us indications as to when something needs to be fixed.
For example, if you are feeling uneasy about this new relationship with a person but you cant put your hands on it. Do not confine that feeling to "oh that's just me being fearful". Take a moment and unpack why you feel that emotion of fear. If you have to voice your opinion do so if you feel safe, but if you dont, pack your bags and walk away. You will thank me later.
Stuffing our emotions in a box to satisfy others will not solve the problem. Dimming down how we feel just to make someone happy will not help you reach the state of happiness that you desire. Holding in how you feel will only become toxic to your health.
