How Are You “Feeling?”

Pointless Overthinking

“We try so hard to hide everything we’re really feeling from those who probably need to know our true feelings the most. People try to bottle up their emotions, as if it’s somehow wrong to have natural reactions to life.”

Colleen Hoover

I have been thinking about my “feelings” a lot lately. Emotional feelings that is, and how they tie to my physical body. I have recently come to the realization that I am out of touch with my feelings on a regular basis. As a result I walk around disconnected from my own body, my mind and the present moment. I do not believe I am alone in this detachment – my guess is many of us suffer similarly.

I am not sure exactly when this rift originally occurred but I do see now how it has had a negative impact on my life. Do not get me wrong…

Looking to help nurses and other caretakers learn about self care and how important it is to put ourselves first so we can be there for others!

  1. It is so hard to really feel, but sooo very necessary unless we want to just go through the motions & leave our emotions (& life) checked out.

    I did 3 workshops in my late 20’s/early 30’s that helped me to process my feelings. I was literally black & blue from beating a Bataka bat against a blue foam gym mat. I scared myself as I had no idea how much anger I had been harbouring. Talk about a release. I was so spent afterward, but it was one of the most freeing experiences ever!!! Cheers to Geneen Roth’s great book. Best read ever for women.

      1. Thanks for being so open and honest in your posts. If more people could share in their experiences in the way that you do, I think we could spare a lot of future pain for more than just ourselves. You have lived an extraordinary life and clearly come out so much stronger for it. Go Girl!
