It’s weak to talk about your emotions!
I thought that once. In fact; I was convinced of that once.
It’s not just me either. A lot of people come to me with the same belief.
You may agree. You may also think that nobody cares what you have to say, or that you can’t trust people.
But let’s look at this:
Emotions are natural.
Thoughts are natural.
Communicating with others is natural.
Why do we think it’s ‘strong’ to keep everything bottled up inside?
It’s easy to tell ourselves that we don’t need anyone and we are fine how we are, but believe you me, that doesn’t work forever.
That irritability you feel, that overwhelm, the stress, the need for escape, those sleepless nights, that anxiety, the list goes on…
All of these symptoms are largely down to too much stuff spiralling around in your head.
Allowing yourself to feel like that?
THAT IS WEAKNESS.
The solution? It’s simple:
Explore your emotions, understand why you’re feeling the way you are. Have the opportunity to offload, feel supported and connect with another human being.
THAT IS STRENGTH.
Ever had a rant, and then after felt like a weight had been lifted?
You don’t need to wait until you get to that point, you can just tell people how you’re feeling on a daily basis.
It’s not weak.
They do care about you.
You can trust them.
Talking about your emotions shows strength.
…and I’m here when you’re ready.
