Ever Felt Overwhelmed With Shame?

March 10, 2014


If you’ve ever been told that you were just “too emotional” you may be feeling frustrated and and wondering,”What’s wrong with me?”

I totally understand… I’ve been there.

One thing that I know for sure, the experience of  what I call “emotional sobriety” is definitely available to you. And emotional sobriety is one of the keys to experiencing the freedom that you want.

Since you landed on this page, I’m imaging that you are one of the many people who arrive on this earth with their emotional bodies fully intact.

Unfortunately, the culture you were born into probably discourages the expressing of emotions.

Which leaves you with a full blown emotional body and not sure how to integrate your feelings into your daily life.

There has definitely been more awareness brought to this phenomena, and most often there are still few culturally accepted place to express and move your emotional energy in a healthy way.

Some cultures, however, have community dances, rituals, and events where emotional energy is encouraged to be expressed in a safe and celebrated way.

Most emotional kids spend most of their days sitting in classes and where they are ridiculed for crying, being angry or afraid. In that environment, the easiest thing to do is try to repress themselves…which is almost impossible!  So what ends up happening is their emotions leak out in what often appears strange and weird behaviors.

I say this because I understand it from my own personal experience.  How to stay emotionally sober and still express my emotions has been my biggest challenge in life.

And after sending out lots of prayers and asking questions, I was blessed with friends, allies and mentors that understood what I was going through and knew how to support me.(I’ll be explaining more about how I came to resolution with at another time).

The intent of this post is to share a video that I stumbled upon  as an example of someone who struggled with his emotions on national TV and ended up getting the help he needed…YAY!
