Embracing my “emotional messiness” is one of my greatest challenges.
I’ve always been one who feels emotions intensely, but when I’m in overwhelm I push away my “messy” emotions and want to move through any sort of being with my emotions quickly, I want to fix things fast!
I forget the importance of the mess – especially for deepening my self-compassion, for finding my way through feeling intensely, not around it.
In these moments of suffering I’ve learned it’s okay to be a mess, in fact it’s actually the short-cut (if there is one) through the mess.
Can you relate?
With great warmth
