Feelings….when we talk about feelings – what’s the first thing that comes into your mind? Is it discomfort? Or confusion as to how to express and communicate about it? Especially when it’s something you feel about unpleasant emotions…
In our busy world, do you feel that nowadays it’s so tough to express or share your unpleasant emotions and perhaps tend to suppress them instead or take some medicine to ease the pain even though you know you don’t necessarily have to take those? Still, it’s easier and faster to cope?
Easier to do that because:
- I don’t want to attend to these unpleasant emotions.
- If I share that, I don’t want to be a burden to someone who might also be going through tough times. Or I thought that maybe, they would make it worst.
- I don’t want to be seen as weak or feel like a failure, unable to cope with my unpleasant emotions.
Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Yes, many of us think and behave this way… And you can do something about it turning your unpleasant emotions to be useful and helping you to move forward stronger instead.
Dr. Trevor Griffiths is the author of Emotional Logic, along with his wife, Dr. Marian Langsford. Founder of Emotional Logic Centre.

Be more resilient and embrace better the constant change.

This episode has a lot of important discussions about what’s happening in our lives right now that are truly affecting our well-being, and I encourage you to watch or listen so that you would know what you can do to contribute and handle the unpleasant emotions better.
Ask yourself, “What situation feels repetitively happening in your life and somehow triggers something deep inside your core.”
I want you to contemplate on that and really be honest – because that honesty within yourself will reveal itself as the core value that you’ve been subconsciously disconnecting with.
Know that it’s totally okay to dive into your emotions, especially the unpleasant or, we call it, negative ones… it’s part of our growth; it’s part of learning better and deeper about our true highest selves.
Give yourself the permission to spend time starting with a small amount of time (if you’re new to it) to understand better what feelings you might be having; it’s super important to stress out here – you’re not weak of feeling whatever feelings you’re having that delaying you for whatever you want in life. It’s the growth. Share it with people you trust, or seek professional assistance when needed. Some values are being disconnected from you, and you want to grow that back. You deserve to have a joyful life.
Trevor and I would love you to share this episode if you find it as powerful as we do, so we can help more people to reconnect with the values that are truly important in life and handle challenging times better.
When you allow yourself to grow, evolve, and elevate – you are opening more possibilities and abundance in life than you could imagine.
