Some people resort to hiding their feelings instead of sharing them with other people. While such a stance may be good in some of the instances, keeping your feelings and emotions bottled up will not always lead to a good conclusion. You need to be expressive about your feelings and emotions so that those who care about you can help you through difficult times and assist you in figuring out the exact reasons for the mental turmoil.
Put Your Focus On The Feelings
In some of the instances, we cannot indicate how exactly we are feeling. And when we, ourselves, cannot pinpoint the emotions that we are feeling, we will not be able to talk about them. The best approach in this case is to figure out or try to make sense of your feelings before you share them with other people. For instance, if you are angry or sad, you need to be aware of the exact reasons for being in that state before talking about this with someone.
Benefits Of Talking About Your Feelings
How you feel in the inside is always extremely important. If what you are feeling is worry or sadness, you need to let that sadness or worry out instead of keeping it bottled up inside. The more you are going to bottle your feelings and emotions inside, the more likely you will explode later on. And during that process, you might even become sick.
When you start talking about your feelings with someone who shows interest and cares about your well being, you automatically start feeling a lot better. Your problems will not disappear magically. You need to take proper steps to ensure that you find a proper solution to whatever is bothering you.
Talking about your feelings allows you to develop a channel of release where an individual can focus on bettering their inner state and achieving a complete peace of mind. Such a release can help to establish positivity in one’s life and better health in turn.
Talking about your feelings and emotions is easy once you are aware of your own state of mind and know who the best person to talk to is. This way, you will be able to explain to them whatever is going on with you in a better manner and make sure that you release all your pent up energy of feelings and emotions in a highly positive manner.
Some people tend to stay more secretive than others, and those people who are shy about sharing how they are feeling should be encouraged to do so.
A Selection of Feeling Quotes
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” ~ Helen Keller
“It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You’re not alone.” ~ Marilyn Monroe
“Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, “Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody.” … [My dark side says,] I am no good… I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.” ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
