Thanks for making it to round two with me, guys! As part of your journey toward increased enlightenment and self-awareness, I wanted to spend some time talking about a really important topic: feelings. The relationship you have with your feelings is one of the most significant bonds you will ever have in your whole, entire, beautiful life. Whether you realize it or not, your feelings have been around since day one. They’ve been there for you through thick and thin. They’ve helped you and protected you. They’ve even gotten you into some trouble (shout out to the premature ejaculators). Your feelings have helped you mend that first broken heart, and all the rest that have followed, which hopefully haven’t been too many. They’ve helped you prepare for conversations you’ve had with your parents that you weren’t stoked on. They’ve prepared you for exams, presentations and interviews. They’ve prepared you for picking your career and your partner. They’ve helped you choose your interests and hobbies and even the outfit you wore today. So, since our feelings are deeply woven into our life experiences, it’d probably be a good idea to get better acquainted with them. And, in case you’re not already besties with your lovely feelings, I want to help you stop with the fisticuffs and learn how to hug and high five ‘em. Because, the truth is, they’re pretty awesome and they’re begging you to hang out.
Repeat as many times as necessary until it resonates: All your feelings are always okay all of the time.
