Hi, all you lovely peeps! I was getting ready to send you a New Year’s card and realized I couldn’t possibly send you the one I was planning because, well, it didn’t feel true to me! SO I made you a video instead. 😁
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this example of a fist and feelings since I first heard it! I bet you’re thinking, “Uh oh!”, but don’t worry. Nobody got punched in the end. 😊
Big feelings don’t always need to be worked out quickly in order to find relief. When the intensity of a feeling grows, it can be helpful to change the channel for a bit. Instead of working harder to find the fixes, change the channel, and do something else entirely. This ends up creating MORE space for the big feelings to come out as the real deal, rather than all wrapped up in a big, confusing reaction.
