Emotions seek release

Releasing emotions is something we do naturally. Emotions seek release.
Laughter can release fear and embarrassment. Tears and sobbing release grief.
Trembling releases fear. Yawning can release tension, and animated talk often
releases boredom. Emotions are neither right nor wrong, good nor bad. Our only job
is to permit them, fully experience them, and then choose ways to respond
to them—if we choose to respond at all.
Dave Ellis

Yesterday Pouie Productions hosted me at a reading. A gathering of women with their own stories who were willing to share in this non judgmental space. We laughed, we cried, we hugged. After it all they expressed that they felt lighter, that they were no longer feeling alone, it was comforting to know that other people had similar stories.

Carrying around a mask 24/7 and 365 days a year can be tiring, it becomes heavy, a burden. It takes courage to live your own life. People want to be liked, they like comfort. Living your own life may rock some boats, piss off some people. To live your own life we must be willing to piss some people off. It is just the way it is.

I have learnt to feel all my feelings without judgement, to get over the resistance in living your truth. to find a healthy way to express your feelings.
It makes a whole lot of difference
