Sadness is not a bad emotion, not a good emotion either. It's just an emotion.

.

Most people don't want to feel 'bad' emotions like sadness, anger, grief etc. It might feel scary actually. When you feel sad, it might feel like its going to be there forever and you're stuck in it now. The world feels like such a lonely place and you're the only person feeling this way..
.
I've felt this many times. Especially this year as I'm allowing myself to feel more, I'm feeling everything like 10 times more. I love it. The truth is we're all human and we feel many emotions. We're not linear. We can't be happy all the time or sad all the time. When you are honest with yourself, you feel all emotions.
.
You might feel angry but actually when you sit with that anger there might be sadness underneath it. When you sit with the sadness fully, cry, weep, mourn, do whatever you need to do fully feel it, underneath that you're going to find joy. When I cry loads afterwards a wave of calmness washes over me and it feels really good actually.
.
It doesn't mean anything about you, you're just releasing, letting go of old emotions. When you feel your sadness, grieve fully, you give someone the permission to do the same.
.
Whenever I see someone cry, I actually smile. Because they're allowing themselves to feel and reminding me how human we all are. I feel so much love and compassion for them. I let them cry without touching, saying anything, without interrupting them feeling until they're done, then offer a hug. How beautiful is that? Being human, feeling it all. Celebrate it, you're alive and feeling!
.
Next time you feel sad, try these steps:
- Close your eyes and take a deep breath
- Sigh out loud
- Allow yourself to feel the sadness
- If tears come, don't hold them back, they're meant to come and go
- When tears are done imagine your future self infront of you
- Ask them, 'What's my next inspired action to follow my truth?'
- Follow that
.
You can feel it all and still not let it take you go off course. You have the power and you get to choose πŸ™πŸΌ
