Whatever you feel could never be wrong....
I have not sat down and written a blog post in forever and I have actually really missed it!
Sometimes life just gets in the way of things and we can get really caught up in all it has to offer. I feel like things just keep getting busier and busier for me. Every time I sit down and think about working on my little business something comes up that takes over.
This has been hard for me, as if I could spend more time working on Mindful Discoveries then I would love to. However, I am lucky enough to have an amazing full time job that I love, working with young people who are struggling with their mental health and making a real difference.
Working full time, doing extra training for work, running a small business, trying to reach as many people as I can all whilst having a social life, can be incredibly tiring. I feel as though I feel an abundance of emotions ALL of the time. I can go from happy and calm to sad and stressed in the blink of an eye.
This blog post is all about controlling emotions, learning to ride them out and accept that whatever you feel could never be wrong (an Ed Sheeran quote, as his one of my favourite singers).
One of the most important things for me to cope with heavy emotions, is to recognise what I am feeling and why, Sometimes I write it down and just by doing this simple task it can make me feel calmer and more in control e.g. I am feeling overwhelmed because I have taken too much on.
It also helps to acknowledge that these feelings are there for a reason, they are trying to tell you something and we should listen!
It's also super important to talk about how you are feeling with others that you trust. Keeping things to yourself and bottling things up, is not allowing yourself to properly feel your emotions.
Knowing that emotions change and that whatever your feeling may be different in the future is important too. When I have snapped from happy and calm to sad and stressed, I think about how quickly that has happened and how quickly things might change again. It's all about learning to ride your emotional roller-coaster as best you can and accept whatever emotion you are feeling!
