What is the best thing we can all do for ourselves and for others on Valentine Day? We can experience our lives by feeling them. Are you wondering what I could be talking about because of course we have to be feeling our lives, after all, how else can a human being move through life? It seems like a pretty basic concept doesn’t it? If it were, why are there so many individuals walking around numb in our world?
Have you ever met someone or perhaps you yourself are like this but this person seems pretty stepford like or he or she behaves much like a robot. For example, a hardship is experienced but you are unable to tell this individual is suffering because he or she is either in denial or living life in avoidance by moving around such suffering by creating an overwhelming routine in order to bypass and essentially suppress such feelings. Yes, this is a coping mechanism but it isn’t necessarily a healthy one. Why? Because eventually all of this suppressed emotion will turbulently erupt and this eruption will cause a breakdown that fractures and deteriorates the walls he or she built to shield vulnerabilities.
Most any of us do not like to feel bad but the way to get through this difficult feeling is by facing it. Yes, it takes courage, but by braving into this darkness, giving yourself permission to bereave whatever hardship that has taken hold, and then by surrendering to such circumstance, you, my friend, can uncover and release the pain. But, the most important thing to remember is, you are not your circumstances and you are worthy of a beautiful, joyous Valentine Day; believe this in your core and you will manifest this in your healthier future!
This is probably the most unusual Valentine Day article you have read but if you are single today and sad because of this, it is okay to feel this way; you are not alone. And, if you’ve recently suffered yet another breakup, do not rush into the next relationship. Grant yourself time to reflect on the experience, feel the emotions that are surfacing, figure out what went wrong and what went right and most of all, give yourself time to heal before you move into the arms of another. You are worth a healthier relationship, one that celebrates you and this is worth the wait!
TinyBuddha.com, in an article about feelings, shares this quote by an unknown source, “The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow.”
It is really important to take the time to put down the baggage of past hardship, open it up and process it because if you do not, it will continue to turbulently surface and reap havoc on that which you hope to positively embrace and cherish in the present moment, it is a subconscious sabotage. If you can brave feeling your emotions, it will honor your past, strengthen your present moment and help you to create a healthier future; make the most of today and wish yourself a Happy Valentine Day, remember you are your best return on investment; put the necessary time in and then reap the benefits!
