My Monday | Your Feelings Are Valid

Hello everyone!
Today I wanted to talk about one of my biggest struggles.
I struggle with allowing myself to feel sad.

| via |

Whenever I feel down I tend to scold myself.
I have a lot to be grateful for. 
My problems are nothing compared to other's.
People would love to have what I have.
These are things I often tell myself when I am down.
That doesn't mean my trials aren't difficult for me. 
That my feelings aren't real.
I think it is important to let yourself feel your feelings.
You can't just pretend they aren't there.
The only way to move forward is to recognize them and let them pass.
Many times the reason we think we are feeling something isn't actually the case. 
When you acknowledge your feelings you have the opportunity to search yourself and find out what the real root of the problem is.
Take the time to stop and ask yourself what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way.
You'll have a better chance of fixing the problem and knowing how to control it in the future.

Erik always has to remind me that it is okay for me to feel sad sometimes.
That just because I have been blessed doesn't mean I am not entitled to feel down.
The next time you are feeling upset I challenge you to feel your feelings!
Take a breath and figure out what is actually going on. 
I know it will make you feel better.

All my love,
