Feeling The Feels In Motherhood

Uncategorized Jan 22, 2021

I cry when I’m happy. I cry when I’m sad. I cry when I’m angry. I cry when I’m overwhelmed.

I cry when I’m tired of adulting.

And, I cried weekly during quarantine.

Usually by Friday. Sometimes on Thursday. But almost always weekly.

I allow myself to feel the feels. I didn't used to do this. In fact, I'd keep them bottled up inside of me until they burst forth at some inappropriate time.

I now understand that it's a part of my ADHD and as much as I don't always love the intense emotions I feel I've begun honoring them.

Squashing your feelings is kind of like playing a game of whack a mole...I learned this the hard way.

You whack it down and then it shows up somewhere else. Whack it down again and there it is. On and on it goes.

And, pent up feelings can manifest in all sorts of dis-ease in the body.

So, allow yourself some sort of release.  You don't have to love our ADHD mind will thank you... 

3 Steps for Allowing and Releasing Feelings

  1. Notice where your feelings reside inside your body.  Allow them to be uncomfortable.  Instead of giving in to the urge to get rid of them, let them be there. 
  2. Imagine the feelings moving through your body.  Imagine a river of feelings.  Let them pause here and there to collect any other pent up feelings.  
  3. Give them to Mother Earth. Let the feelings move out through the bottoms of your feet. Let them be neutralized by Mother Earth (don't worry - she can handle it all).

What do you do to let it all out?
