Sometimes I make the error of trying to fix things. I recognize this in myself because I see it in my mother. When I come to her with a problem or a piece of pain she wants to fix it, because I’m her baby and she hates to see me in pain. And so sometimes I gently remind her that I’ll fix it when I’m ready or we can fix it together but right here, in this moment when I’m sharing my hurt or frustration I just want to be heard. I just want to feel what I’m feeling and not be alone. I don’t want it fixed.
I think that so often we as a society try not to feel. We numb ourselves with drugs, alcohol, television, video games, etc. and we suffer because of it. It’s really important to just feel sometimes. Let the sadness take over for a minute, cry, sob, scream, and know that it’s okay to not always be okay. Thanks for a great reminder Em. Happy Friday everyone!
