Do you label feeling emotions as something scary and end up shoving them into your emotional closet? If you’re ready to make peace with your sensitivity and learn how to fearlessly experience emotions without becoming overwhelmed, this episode is for you.
When you focus on the body and the energy of the emotion, don’t get caught up in stories, and don’t think of what they could mean about you and your life, emotions become easier to process. In this episode, I explore what we tend to do instead of feeling our feelings and what that avoidance can cost us.
Join me this week as I delve into what emotional overwhelm is, why it’s common in highly sensitive people, and why we label emotions as scary. I explain four different reasons that can lead us to labeling emotions as something to fear and share how to stop this pattern once and for all. Discover how to overcome the shame of being emotional and learn how embracing your sensitivity can give you access to more joy, love, and happiness in your life.
