No! Full permission to have your emotions!
I hear it a lot from my clients, many HSP and empaths, that they have been made wrong or shamed for expressing their emotions. Many weren’t allowed to have emotions when they were little – anger, sadness, fear, excitement….
all simply shut down.
Women are often called all sorts of names when they get emotional when it makes someone else uncomfortable. Men are told they can’t have them. It’s not manly.
Societal programming has dictated what is acceptable and being in touch with our emotions isn’t part of that. It’s time to change that.
Your emotions are part of you and they're telling you something.
🌟 It’s ok if the floodgates open with tears of sadness.
🌟 It’s ok if you are bouncing off the walls with excitement.
🌟 It’s ok if the anger is simmering below the surface and needs to be expressed.
This is an invitation to welcome your emotions, all of them, not making any of them wrong, bad, or not ok.
Notice what is happening to your body with the emotion.
Dig in. Discover what the emotion is trying to tell you.
This takes awareness. It’s a process. Be gentle and patient with yourself.
