5 Proven Ways to Face Your Feelings

We lie.

We tell everyone that we’re fine, that we’re ok, when really, we’re not.

  It’s time to be honest.


Regardless of everything you’ve been through, right now, the biggest obstacle towards your happiness and your peace of mind is you.

But it’s ok.

Because if YOU are the obstacle, then YOU too are the solution.


1)    The honesty challenge

It’s time to confess. Give yourself just one minute. Go outside; sit in the garden, in your bedroom, the office, your bathroom – wherever it’s quiet. Sit still and quietly tell yourself everything that’s bothering you. Be your own best friend.


2)     Question the feeling

Ask yourself what’s up.

There may not be one answer to this, so break it down. Write it down if you have to. At first, this may feel uncomfortable, but answer it anyway. As you do, consider the next heading.


3)    Judge not

Here’s the most important thing.

As you face your feelings, do not judge them

Do not judge any person involved and above all, don’t judge yourself.

Relax and be aware of how the problem is making you feel. Feel  your feelings. All of them.  What are your thoughts?  How is your body reacting? Just be with yourself in this moment. Trust yourself.


4)    Embrace it

Tell yourself, its ok to feel how you are feeling.

Smile, because you are in control of your thoughts, actions and reactions.


5)    Express yourself

Tony Robbins once said “Motion is Emotion.”

Its time to express yourself, pick up a pen, a paint brush or an instrument and create something. Go for a walk, dance, bake. Do anything you enjoy.

The main thing is that you make time for yourself and get yourself back on track to a state of peace and happiness.


Nothing is impossible.

After the rain the sun always comes out.

Face your feelings, feel your feelings and let the sun shine.
