Accept yourself!

OMEGA watch, DE VILLE TRÉSOR Collection

Any emotion, if it is sincere, is involuntary.

Mark Twain

Many of us may recall being taught since childhood to ignore, hide and suppress our natural negative emotions. We were told that these feelings that we have are bad and make ourselves bad, that we should be ashamed of these feelings and keep them to ourselves. But how?

And is it worth it? We have been learning to ignore our feelings since childhood, to deny their existence, because we are programmed this way: they instill us that showing anything outside the scope of the positive is a shame. But it is these emotions that are very strong - and much stronger than we suspect. They rush out, strive to make a statement, no matter how embarrassed we feel. And most often they win, manifesting themselves in one form or another. Sometimes healthy, and sometimes unhealthy, even toxic.

The ability to recognize and control your emotions is one of the most important skills that we must acquire ourselves and teach our children. If you can notice your true problems by turning off your ego, and saying your feelings out loud, saying: "I feel this or that, no, I'm not ashamed, I will try to replace this state with another, but this is in me, and this is a part of me". Calm down and accept - then "it" will stop growing inside, since you have accepted it in yourself. This will change your behavior, you will be able to succeed in life, have a healthy relationship with others and cope with internal problems and imbalances, avoiding their negative consequences.

Any strong emotions increase the chances that we will act. Anger will make you sincerely say everything that has accumulated in your soul. Fear will teach you to avoid danger and get out of the situation, including the "do not harm yourself" function. And finally, love is the birth of all new, even yourself...

Isn't it amazing how prettier and even younger a person who experiences some kind of - any! - strong feeling gets in our eyes? With this, nature shows us what a person can and should feel, progress, drawing energy from their emotions, that this is a path to long youth and to success.
