Your emotions are valid. No one can refute them. No one can tell you how you are feeling or that what you are feeling is wrong because it is what you are feeling.

One thing that can be frustrating is when you show or express an emotion, and then people tell you that you should not be upset.

No matter what someone else thinks or feels about our circumstances and how we should respond, our feelings are not imagined and should not be disputed.

At the same time, you can’t really blame other people for your emotions. Your emotions are yours and they come and go based on the choices you make.

These choices could be based on a few of the following:-

  1. About how you wish to live your life.

  2. About how you talk to yourself when things don’t go right.

  3. About how you reacted to a situation.

  4. About how you are feeling when someone did wrong by you.

  5. About an event that you had no control of.

We are only human and we are going to have times when we feel wounded by people, events and or something that we did wrong.

In moments like this we can feel overwhelmed with different emotions and not really knowing how to express them or move on.

We are so often hard on ourselves and judge ourselves harshly for what we did or did not do.

Perhaps we could try to feel the emotion, whether it is right or wrong, then give ourselves some time to understand what is going on in our heads and our hearts. Then try to forgive ourselves rather than beat ourselves up.

Then allow yourself the space to recognise your thoughts and think of what you can do to feel stronger.

Do not let the shadows of your past darken the doorstep of your future.
