In Order to Feel Good

Externally we are doing all the things. Working out, trying to control our environments to manage stress, trying to eat right, drink water, get enough sleep, have healthy relationships. Those are all important things for our health. But ultimately they are distractions from the root issues of our distress. They help us avoid feelings we don’t want to feel.


Those are the biggies that are super uncomfortable. It takes a lot of vulnerability to admit and feel these things.

Feelings are just feelings. Yes, they can be intense, but they will not run your life unless you let them. And guess what, if you are avoiding them, they are absolutely running your life. Because every choice you make is based on avoiding it.

What does it look like to feel? Do you have a safe space to express? If you don’t, how are your bottled up feelings keeping you from feeling good?
