How are you feeling today?

, , , ,

We are not our feelings but we are ruled by them.
Feelings are a very “charged subject”. Many people have a very hard time to talk about their own feelings and emotions. It’s easier to say that everything is ok. This goes especially for feelings such as anger, jealousy, depression and anxiety. Those feelings relate to shame and weakness.

We have 9 ground-feelings:
• Joy
• Interest
• Curiousness
• Fear
• Anger
• Sadness
• Abhorrence
• Disgust
• Shame/guilt

These feelings are congenital and not learnt. They are with us even at and infancy are the same for all cultures. Other remaining feelings are learnt and made of the ground-feelings.
We are raised to express feelings as happiness and joy. But often we have other feelings too. Because many people don’t show or talk about negative feelings, we think we’re alone in this. But I can promise you that everyone on this earth have the same feelings you do.
One reason, that people don’t talk about feelings other than happiness is, that they are so afraid of being rejected and end up alone. But when you start to show your feelings and talk about them you automatically get better relations. Your emotions make you beautiful and alive. When you’re open and honest people begin to trust you. And you make them feel safe, to show and talk about their emotions.
Showing emotions makes you grow as a person. It helps you understand yourself and makes it easier for you to find out what you want and make decisions.

What makes you happy or sad? Learn to know yourself now. At the end of the day you feel happier. You are greeted with empathy, recognition and sympathy.
You are going to feel a communion and solidarity upon confirmation.
It makes you feel less alone.

Dare to say “I am not perfect and I do not demand perfection from others either”.
Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself
