Emotional Rollercoasters

Emotions_faces_webIn the midst of great challenges, emotion can overwhelm us. Whether it’s observing or experiencing global conflict, community issues, or personal angst, our feelings are our default lenses. Quite often, they can lead us in less than optimal directions if we allow them to go unchecked.

Think of emotions as separate entities trying to live. In order to thrive, they have to find a willing host. Once they find an unsuspecting space to occupy, they run wild.

This is not to say to have our defenses up against them. Denial or suppression is unhealthy. What we do need, though, is to be conscious of the emotions that settle in and explore the root reasons for their occupation. Once we are able to process its core, then we’re able to deal effectively and eventually release them.

When dealing with emotion, you have to step out of it in order to step up. (Tweet this)

To live a conscious life is to be able to observe ALL that you are. This includes your emotions. But remember, they are not you. They just pass through you.

    You make a great point, Emelia! It can be so easy to get caught up in our emotions and to let them dictate what we do or how we do it, but although I may be feeling angry (for instance), that doesn’t mean that I *am* angry (I mean, as all that I am). I think our language around emotions can make this trickier, but as I get better at letting my emotions wash over me, I’m finding I can make much clearer decisions–and I’m also enjoying my life in general a lot more.

      Hey Jessica :)

      Language really is important. I think it shapes the way we act and feel about ourselves. I try to say “I feel…” as opposed to “I am…” It allows for the “washing over” and clarity you reference. And, yes, life is waaaaaay better that way. :)
