Do you ever find yourself struggling with depression, or anxiety, or in a need to control everything around you? I’m Dr. Keesha Ewers, and this is something that I help a lot of patients through- helping to navigate the emotional soup of their lives.
I can help you to navigate the emotional soup of your life.
Remember that emotions are a wide spectrum. We have everything from the darkest and gloomiest of moods to the lightest and brightest, and we can’t stay in one forever. Emotions are much like waves that come up from the ocean onto the beach. They’ll come in, and then they’ll recede again.
Stay stable with them and understand that an uncomfortable feeling is okay to have; it’s okay to feel sad. It’s okay to feel anxious, afraid, depressed, even, if it doesn’t stick around
It’s when we attach to that feeling and become afraid that it’s going to stay forever; we start to have problems.
Those uncomfortable feelings, remember, this is the tip, usually last about eight seconds to eight minutes. Can you stay with a feeling for that long? Think of it like a wave. It will come, and it will go. Think of the last time you were happy. It didn’t stay. Think of the last time you were sad. It didn’t stay. It’s like the rhythms and cycles of nature, so if you can bring that understanding to your moods, you will also understand that it’s not bad if you feel less than happy occasionally. Don’t judge it. Don’t expect something different than what it is, and it will go away and change.
That is one of the guarantees of life, right? That there will always be change.
