Healing Isn’t Linear: Learn To Feel Your Feels

Healing isn’t linear. There’s not a direct path to a blissful Zen state and then you’re done.

This work, the work I support my clients do, the work I do on myself each and every day, it’s about feeling your feelings, but truly feeling them, recognizing where they live in your body and honoring them.

Things will feel terrible, things will suck, things will be hard and challenging, and that is human life.

My beloved sweet kitten, the healing is in the acceptance of your feelings and your struggle.

Feeling bad about feeling bad is buffering against the original emotion you had.

And my beauty, we have to remember what you don’t feel you can’t heal.

Healing our wounds, managing our minds is about cultivating a deep belief that you can cry and fully experience your feelings through your body.

Getting rid of lousy feelings is not the goal because that would make you not human.

If righteous anger fuels you towards getting amazing things done then rock on with it.

This is you healing you.
