Have you ever felt jealous of another person’s success?
Do you sometimes suddenly start to feel unhappy about your own life?
Does your heart skip a beat for someone you know your legs should be skipping away from?
Then, this is for you! 🤓🤓🤓
But, wait a minute 🤔🤔🤔
I’m super glad to have you join me on another edition of the Lighthouse 😆😆😆
News Flash ✨✨
You are absolutely normal! 😊
Every emotion you feel is valid whether anger, jealousy, envy, loneliness, guilt, love, joy etc.
You are not a witch for being envious of other people’s success.
It’s okay to love a person who isn’t reciprocating your love.
It’s not a bad thing to feel sad that things aren’t going the way you planned.
Feeling a certain way isn’t wrong but what you do with it and how long you dwell in the city of that emotion is much more important.
But trust me, that they are normal doesn’t mean they are healthy for you.
So today, I bring you good tidings on how to take charge and deal with your emotions. 😊
Tested and Trusted as always 💯💯💯
To deal with your emotions, you have to first VALIDATE your emotions and then EVALUATE them
Validating your emotions simply involves acknowledging that you feel a certain way.
Afterall, to solve a problem, you have to first acknowledge and accept that it exists.
But often times, we love to live in denial, sweep our emotions under the carpet and indulge in something to mask how we feel.
Its why people indulge in binge eating, alcoholism, rebound relationships and drugs because rather than accept and deal with it, we choose to run as fast as our legs can carry us.
Do you know why acceptance is the last stage in the 5 stages of grieving? It’s because it marks the beginning of freedom, hard as it may be.
I know you don’t like how you feel but adding guilt would only make you sink deeper into the pool of negative emotions.
You’ve got to learn to validate your emotions!!! And let no one guilt-trip you
But, It doesn’t end there….
The next best and most freeing thing to do is Evaluate your emotions.
Do you sometimes, also, just realize that you are not upbeat and you can’t really place what is wrong but you quickly tag it as ‘mood swing’?
Except in cases where hormones are doing their thing. More often than not, it’s because you don’t want to deal with it and you are being mentally lazy to evaluate it.
Evaluating your emotions simply involves asking yourself questions and being super honest with the answers you give yourself.
I started this practice some months ago and it has been such a liberating practice.
Join me next week as I explain in details how you evaluate your emotions and start your journey into mental and emotional freedom.
Remember, You can’t just wish your emotions away.
You can decide to start to take charge and be in control!
