Having a bad day

Vulnerability. Autenticity.

We are born with emotions. A part of being a human is to have emotions. So why do so many of us fear them, hide them from others, and push them away when they’re not screaming happiness and confidence?

It’s almost as if we think having negative emotions are shameful or wrong. But how can it be wrong to express and embody something that, indisputably, are a part of us from natures side?

I believe everything is possible – so therefor I believe there are people out there who are calm and happy all the time. Who rarely shreds a tear or feel like blowing up in anger. Then I know that there are plenty of people like me, quite the opposite, who feels all the spectres of emotions so strongly it gets overwhelming at times.

I have always been like a sponge – absorbing energy and emotions around me without even being aware of it. Adopting them and making them my own. And I’m born with a vivid imagination and empathy that makes it easy for me to come up with stories in my mind, and by that feeling the emotions I imagine they’re holding. I feel immense happiness and I feel what seems like bottomless grief. I’m full of emotions.

It used to be a lot more of a roller coaster before. When I got into the holistic way of living and worked on my mindset it got easier for me to stay calm and not care so much.

My question though, is, why does it seem like the mission is to eliminate every so called ‘negative’ emotion from our life experience?

Well, I’m here to tell you that I don’t think it is. Life is a mystery, and I love this quote:

So – cheers to anger. To sadness, grief and frustration. Which indisputably is a part of experiencing life on earth. Cheers to all the lessons they bring, and all the contrast and light they give to the blue sky sunny days.

Hang in there – cause after the rain there’s always a rainbow and you know I could go on and on with my cheesy quotes cause that’s what I’m made of.
