Emotions: They're Here for a Reason and... My New Fave Book on EmotionsFeb 23, 2022
Fun fact: Naming your emotions rather than ignoring them helps you have more control over managing them! If you want to even take it a step further, pay attention to why it's there.
My clients often times are in the habit of ignoring big or unpleasant emotions. If I'm honest, I catch myself doing it sometimes too. I like to tell my clients, if that worked I'd help you push your emotions deep down and teach great skills to help you ignore them. But, y'all, it DOESN'T work. What you push down will end up coming up, and usually in a way you don't expect or plan for!
