TO LOVE YOURSELF BY ACCEPTING YOUR EMOTIONS MAKES IT EASY FOR YOU TO LOVE OTHERS.
Cutting off your emotions prematurely prevents you from learning what they are, when they originated and what evoked them. Not accepting your emotions means not accepting yourself. That will prompt you to not only look for somebody else to sound your blaming voice on, but it will also make you suppress your emotions and subsequently transform them, with your self-talks or thoughts, into shame, blame or guilt. Accepting your emotions and examining its thought system and other factors connected to them secures to you the relevant wisdom necessary for making constructive decisions.
Accepting your feelings counts as lovingly embracing all your feelings including fear that often stands in the way of your feeling your emotions. It is an understanding that your seemingly distasteful emotions are bearable and that to love yourself by accepting your emotions makes it easy for you to love others.
It is suspected that numbed and suppressed feelings run us about with health problems like migraines and ulcers. While partially felt and suppressed feelings pick us up with persistent sadness and anger.
Lack of acceptance of your emotions gets up as repetitive activities like excessive smoking, drinking, TV watching or socialising. Biting of nails, an inability to be still or tolerate gaps in conversations qualify under this category.
Accepting and feeling your emotions enables you to examine and understand it’s associated fantasies with their inherent messages. A superwoman fantasy often indicates a loss of control and the need to become more assertive, while persistent day-dreams connected to romance frequently indicate loneliness and an inability to let in love. The practice of accepting your emotions livens you up with higher emotional highs and intense emotional lows.
Surviving a difficult experience is often dependent on your ability to focus on your inner riches: feelings of love, self-reassurance, hope and faith. This is possible only when you are accepting of the emotions that you consider as severe.
