Are you experiencing some “uncomfortable” emotions?
Anxiety, anger, sadness, frustration, are some that come to mind. There is also that icky “unnameable” emotion, the one where you just feel BAD.
Maybe you can’t really put your finger on WHAT to call it, but you know you don’t like it.
No matter what emotion you are feeling, if you can put it into the “uncomfortable” or “I-really-don’t-like-this-feeling” category, I want to give you some ideas that may be helpful.
Here is the thing I want you to take away from this post: Your feelings are a miracle.
However you want to label them…good, bad, ugly…all of them. Miraculous. And they exist to help you.
The basic idea is that when you are feeling something that feels good to you (comfortable feelings…happy, peaceful, fulfilled, joyous, creative, exuberant, energized, satisfied, warm & fuzzy etc.) you are experiencing your needs being met.
And when you are feeling uncomfortable emotions it is generally because there is some need you have that is NOT being met.
And we all have LOTS of needs…from the basic human needs like air, water, food, sleep, sex, shelter…to needs like community, connection, the need to be seen and heard (Facebook is popular for a reason!!), appreciation, celebration, privacy, beauty, honesty, and love (to name just a few!)
Where in your life are you feeling less than comfortable?
What is the unmet need causing this discomfort?
How can you get that need met?
Once you can identify what need you have and then develop a plan of action to get that need met, your uncomfortable feeling will be history.
