Your emotions are strong. At times they are overpowering. That’s okay. You are a force to be reckoned with. Don’t try to ignore these emotions, let yourself explore them instead.
Perhaps you struggle to understand your conflicting emotions. You are terribly angry, bitterly sad, and utterly empowered all at the same time. Use this to be the change you wish to see in the world.
If you are a storm of emotions right now, channel your strength and energy towards justice. Start to actively understand the world around you and breakdown the things that are sparking your conflicting feelings.
You are strong. You are brave. You are unapologetic. Never let anyone make you feel bad about your emotions. They are yours to express and no one’s to control. Feel angry, sad, happy, nervous, scared, or excited. Feel them all at the same time, or just once every now and again.
Let your body tackle these emotion and know that there is strength in emotionally defending yourself. You are not being dramatic. You are authentic, proud, and honorable.
Your tears can stream down your face. Your hands can get clammy and your face can get all red and hot. Don’t hide yourself and don’t feel embarrassed.
Don’t play dumb with your emotions. The more you are in denial about how you feel, the more your emotions will control you. You control your emotions.
Never let who you are define how you feel. Whether you are the biggest fish in the pond or the smallest of guppies, your emotions are equally valid. It doesn’t matter who you are and where you come from, you have a great strength inside you. Your feelings deserve to be heard and respected.
Focus yourself on the eye of your emotional storm. Always search for peace throughout the tidal wave of your emotions. Find your eye and let that be your emotional home-base.
If you are a tidal wave of emotions, know that you will experience the ups and downs of the storm. Some days will be worse than others. Whether you are a Level Five Hurricane or a calm sunshower, your emotions are always worthy.
There is an unbelievable power in you. You can change the tide, calm the waters, move the seas, and create tornados with your words. Above all, your heart is an undeniably amazing force. So if you are a tidal wave of emotions right now that is okay…
Always remember to express your emotions, truthfully process your feelings, and love the tidal wave that is you.
