So here is the thing, cliché but true, running away or avoiding emotions does not help in the long run. This is how it happens –
A certain emotion [sadness/anger/etc] has entered your space.
Our first reaction is to run away from it or to avoid it, so what do we do? We distract ourselves. How?
- Taking a vacation
- Eating/drinking [excessively]
We are back to feeling miserable [maybe even more than what we were before]
So what I have learned here is, ‘feel it all up’ because unless you don’t release it on your own, it will find its own way of releasing, spoiling your health, illness, skin problems or reflecting on any other aspect of your life.
Its very basic, something that comes, has to release, either you give it a way to release or it will find its own.
So feel it up, feel it all up, cry it off, yell it away, feel the sadness or the anger.Its OK! Yes you can choose to travel, but just a change of location wont help, as the issue is not external, its inside and its always as within, so with out. And trust that 'this too shall pass!'
The following line portray 'As within, so without' beautifully!
'Maine ye bhi socha hai aksar
Tu bhi main bhi sabhi hai sheeshe
Khudhi ko hum sabhi mein dekhe
Nahi hoon main hoon main to phir bhi
Sahi galat tumhara main
Mujhe paana, paana hai khud ko'
