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
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.
