20 FREE YOURSELF

 

Often we suffer in silence, muted, we are caged by fear, afraid of being judged, dismissed, ridiculed and laughed at. While we die in degrees, haemorrhaging, pretending all is well. Silence though golden can also be deadly. 

“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”Sigmund Freud

Humble You by Joseph MasilaThere is no one perfect way to healing and living life abundantly however truth is the key. The truth we must tell ourselves, the truth we must own on the journey to true healing.

We must be honest and  hold fast to personal integrity. I don’t claim to  have the “perfect” solution(s) to all of life’s ills . I do know however that bottling and suffocating on what distresses and pains us is certainly not the answer. It is toxic and it poisons us from the inside out saturating and debilitating our being finding an avenue of release with or without our consent.

SO WHAT DO WE DO NEXT?:

We  express ourselves in ways that is freeing, productive, positive, nourishing, healing and life affirming while doing the work necessary for living life abundantly.  

Happiness is a choice. Choose to be happy.

  2. It is good to express one's feelings rather than bottle them up inside. However I think we need to be careful at how we express them so as not to tear down anyone else or upset those around us with negativity. That is an interesting piece of art work.

  7. This is powerful and so very true. We must deal with things that bother us head-on rather than holding them inside. I know from personal experience. We might think that remaining silent and not speaking up is the thing to do. It isn't always. Some things must be addressed right away...or shortly thereafter..

    1. Yes, things buried are liable to become toxic. Often we are told silence is golden, while this is true, it is only true to a degree specific to particular situations and circumstances. Silence can also be deadly.

    1. I think we are all guilty in some way or the other Sheila, for though we know it is wise to communicate more, clearly and set boundaries, some things cut so deep it renders us mute for a while.
