I have lived most of my life thinking feelings just happened. That I had no control over them. And as these feelings “happened” to me I didn’t know how to deal with them, so I avoided or resisted them. This was the path that took me to being over weight and hating the body that I had created.
We want to be able to only experience the good feelings and forget the negative; such as, sadness, boredom, loneliness, anxiety and anger to name a few. These feelings can be accepted and processed. Feelings come in both positive and negative. You must have negative feelings/events in life to appreciate the positive feelings/events in life. Brooke Castillo, Master Life Coach, taught me that resisting or avoiding your feelings is not the way to live an authentic life. Feel your feelings and understand that feelings cannot hurt you. Understand what you are feeling, describe what you are feeling and give space to it. By doing this you are taking back the control of your life.
I would like to invite you to schedule a mini coaching session to learn how you can live your life to the fullest and take back the control over your emotions. Click the following link, https://calendly.com/livepositivelc/30min/01-08-2018.
