Expressing our feelings:

13 Aug

We all are human beings, and each of us has so many hard situations to face in everyday life. Expressing feelings is important for all human beings in most situations. If we don’t do it, it is like holding gushing water from a dam. Ignoring to express feelings is not good for our body and mind. Now or later, it should go… we have to learn to let it go. When we express ourselves, then only we can live this life as who we are. It is important to know how we should express our feelings effectively.

We can express feelings in different ways. Every individual is unique and so expressing feelings is different for each person. Some ways are:

– Talk about it to a good friend

– Cry out loud

– Write it in words/ poem/story

– As a painting or any art form

– Listen to music

– Meditation/praying

– Physical activities thinking about it

Expressing feelings is important for individuals. If it is not done, some people become workaholics, alcoholics, or depressed to avoid dealing with their feelings. Unexpressed feelings can lead to something else we don’t even think of. That state makes us confused, stressed, and unhappy. It can ruin our relations with others, careers, and most anything. It is important to learn to deal with all frustrations and disappointments. If we cannot do it alone, do not hesitate to seek help.

    I think out of all these ways, the best way is to talk about our feelings to a friend, or to ourselves is even better. While everything else expresses our feelings in an indirect way, when you talk, you hear yourself, and you think about everything as if it’s happening to someone else, it’s called helicopter skills, so you will see the situation from a different perspective.
