How many of us have pretended to be somewhere emotionally that we really aren’t? That heart break, that divorce, that loss that we have replied to, “I’m ok” when asked. This post goes along with my last post, in order to open up, you must first be honest with yourself before you can be honest with someone else.
As women, we want everyone to believe that we are strong, ALL of the time. Truth is, we were created as emotional beings. Sometimes we’re all over the place! We can “put on” when necessary, but sometimes, just sometimes, we have to be honest and say: “I’m tired. I’m sad. I’m not ok!” And give ourselves permission to just BE that.
Don’t put any more pressure upon yourself, than God requires of of you.
The longer we pretend that we are somewhere emotionally that we are not, the longer we delay the true healing that God wants to do in us. Although uncomfortable, we have got to feel every single emotion that the heart break, divorce, loss, whatever it is entails. And then we will be able to move forward.
Tip of the day: Take a moment from life, breathe and take 5 minutes where you do nothing but be present with your emotional state. Write down every single thing that you are feeling at this very moment. Are you sad? Are you joyful? Are you tearful? Are you overwhelmed? Be honest with yourself.
Blessings and hugs,
