Feelings and emotions are natural part of the human make up. So, why talk about it? Because it plays an important role in communication to ourselves. We can either run with it destructively or learn to use it constructively.
"To live well, we cannot run from our feelings but instead we must learn how to integrate them into our life and let them guide us."
We know that depressing feelings can get us down and escalate to more depression because we attract depressing memories, situations etc. Why do we let it take hold of us? Sometimes we may relish in nostalgic memories which even though depressing, in some weird way also comforting. Other times we may not know how to deal with overwhelming emotions so we ride the waves until it passes. But if we learn how to harness our feelings, we can use them creatively. Some people who suffers from clinical depression have written the most beautiful poetry, lyrics, comedies etc. I, myself, wrote most of my poetry whilst recovering from a period of long illness.
"The main factor in many form of creativeness is the life of a human spirit, that of the actor and his part, their joint feelings and subconscious creation." Constantin Stanislavski
Feelings communicate two things to us, what feels good and what feels bad. The labels we give to any one feeling falls in either or between these two categories. Our natural state is one of feeling good so when we feel bad, its telling us we need to re-align ourselves with the feeling good vibes. We have a choice, even if we think we don't we are still making a choice, so make the right one.
"I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings." Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
My friends, you have the potential to feel happy every waking moment creating your best life. A good book I recommend everyone reads is Following your bliss by Joseph Campbell. You can listen to the audio book on YouTube for free.
"God is not present in idols. Your feelings are god. The soul is your temple."
Feelings nothing more than feelings
I hear this song playing
What does it mean?
What is it saying?
Feelings mean more to me
Life to me
A roller coaster to me
Even more, exhilarating to me
I am a person who is into self development and I am always learning and striving to be the best of myself. I like to empower others to make a difference in theirs and others lives. I also like to express myself creatively through poetry. "I'm an architect, of myself...."
