Emotional Cycles

Just as houses require consistent maintenance and cleaning, so do we. Humans accrue emotional, mental, spiritual and physical needs that require upkeep, attention and clearing. It seems that we relearn this over and over again as life moves in cycles. We may think that we are “over” some aspect of our past and then another thing pops up to remind us of the underlying pain. 

Just as we breathe through exercises in the gym, if we can breathe through the emotional pain as it arises, we will become emotionally stronger. The emotions that we work through won’t kill us, though at times it can feel that way. In fact, the more emotions we can work through, the freer we can be.

To believe we have somehow failed because we are still “dealing with” things long past, keeps us from taking the steps to move forward and out of that past. If we can see emotional and mental maintenance just as we do the care and upkeep of our homes, we will see that life inherently creates areas that require cleaning, dusting, washing and vacuuming; repeatedly and in cycles.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. So true we often have to revisit the same issue over and over but if we can deepen into our true feelings we make progress. To be told we should be over something before we have fully processed it shows ignorance of the truth of emotions and trauma. Great post.
