Sometimes it makes sense to distract yourself from your emotions. We can’t feel our emotions 24 hours a day. We need to take breaks!
However, it’s not healthy to be constantly avoiding our feelings either.
I’ve avoided my feelings almost my entire life. I was told I didn’t need to feel or a certain way. Or. I shouldn’t feel a certain way.
My family is very *nice*.
We don’t get too happy and we don’t get too sad.
I always was different from that. I had some extreme feelings. And no outlet for them.
What I’m working on right now, is being with my feelings, ~if only for a few minutes.
Let me tell you. It isn’t easy. Being in my body AND having feelings is so hard for me. Learning to find calm is the journey I am on.
So, when I decide to take a break from my feelings. I’m going to try drink some tea.
I love TAZO tea!!!!
Drinking ANY type of beverage is a challenge for me! I’m a gulper. Big time. So, I’m off to savor my Tazo!
Do you use food to deal with emotions? What strategies do you use to over come this?
