Feelings & Emotions
When I attended your workshop in Columbia in October you discussed the difference between feelings & emotions and the affects they can have on our bodies, physically, the tight feeling in our chest, the pain in the pit of our stomach. . . . . but for the life of me I can't recall what you recommended for dealing with this.
Recent events have wreaked havoc in my life. I feel like I'm wrapped up tight & I'm going to suffocate. I feel paralyzed. There are days I can't function. I try to go to my "happy place" but that's impossible when I'm so overwhelmed, I can't run away from these situations, I can't fix them, I know I'm not in control. . of anything.
I have safe people to talk to-I'm wearing them out, I've cried an ocean of tears-there's nothing left, I'm numb. . .I know my children's problems are theirs to handle, to deal with & I'm doing my best to let them find their way. . . but the thoughts, the fears, the worry never leaves, the despair.
The sun is shining outside, but I feel so dark. How can I change this?
