In Episode 87 of Pep Talks for Your Soul, I talk about getting it off your chest.
I don't know about you, but for me expressing how I feel (in the past) was struggle street. I was much better at bottling it all up, keeping the peace and carrying all my feelings and emotions inside of me.
I became a master bottler. I was a professional at making it appear that my life was together or that I wasn't affected by things...until I wasn't. Or until I had a mental breakdown.
And, if you relate, then you'll love this episode. And even if you don't have a problem expressing what you feel, maybe your partner does. Maybe your bestie does, and perhaps this will be the episode you can lovingly share and say, 'Hey, I thought you may like this'.
To be the best version of ourselves (in each moment) we have to look at what's keeping us from being anything but that. That takes courage. It takes a willingness to say (to ourselves), I'm not being mature about how I'm feeling. And this approach of keeping things inside this treasure chest ain't serving me no more...I'm ready to step into a greater version of myself.
More empowering right? Right! Hi-Five.
Enjoy the episode. Oh, feel free to tag me on social with any of your takeaways. @MonicaKade
