keep riding…

When an intense emotion comes out of “nowhere” .. you know that feeling, in your throat… the sadness comes, the tears feel stuck in your throat… for some reason you can’t let them free, you know you’re not supposed to cry, cause after all… you shouldn’t feel the sadness …

Take a deep breath… or a slow breath … and allow yourself to feel. Allow yourself to feel the sadness. It’s an emotion, a natural one. Feel the sadness, allow yourself to feel it.

GG-Round-3-sadness-house-md-fans-7125614-1280-800The world will not end cause you’re sad. Everyone feels sadness (well, at least those that allow themselves to feel it) It’s just an emotion, ride it. Don’t hide it, don’t push it away, ride the feeling…

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
