Then one evening after talking with a friend about it I finally shed a few tears. Not many mind you, but those few tears did what I couldn’t do on my own in for almost a week. They released whatever emotion had built up inside, and I felt much better almost immediately.
Whew! Back to feeling energized, feeling hopeful, and ready to move forward once again!
So what’s the point?
That emotions can and do build up in our bodies and sometimes we need to release them. Physically. Which is exactly what those few tears did for me.
What’s your method of release? Do you cry? Do vigorous physical activity? Write? Talk? Sing? Play video games? Clean? Get out of town for a few days? Use a technique like EFT, EMDR or something else? Whatever your method of releasing pent up emotions, make sure to use it regularly. It will keep you on a much more even keel and a lot happier too.
If you don’t, release pent up emotions then they’ll get embedded and buried deeper and deeper, until they begin to effect your life on a much deeper, and more detrimental level.
