It’s been a very stormy day, I woke up to thunder and heavy rain and was glad. I like it when the weather matches my mood.
Sometimes it seems like we’re rushed through our sadness or, worse, encouraged to ignore it altogether.
Isn’t it better, though, to recognize our sadness for what it is?
Sadness is a natural response to loss, regret or hardship. Only when we make space for our sadness can we move past it, adjust, and affect positive change in our lives – not doing so can lead to anger, bitterness, avoidance and depression. All of which effect our overall wellness (emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual) and stifle our personal growth. Give yourself permission to feel sad and find ways to express that sadness. Journaling, creating art…or just letting yourself cry can be extremely helpful.
You are wild, wondrous, and worthy – feel your feelings. ♡
