When you’re stuck in your head going over and over and over all the thoughts and conversations of the day that have left you feeling frustrated, angry, and annoyed, you feel like you’re going round and round in circles. It’s not helpful. You KNOW that, but you keep doing it anyway.
What purpose does that serve you?
Perhaps you’re trying to figure out a better outcome – You’re trying to work out how the conversations COULD have gone. Perhaps you’re ranting in your head – Trying to express your frustrations and make sense of them. Perhaps you’re angry at those who angered you – You’re trying to get back at them, but you can’t because it’s all in your head.
So why do you do this?
You KNOW that LOGICALLY it DOESN’T serve you, yet you keep going round and round in your head getting more and more frustrated and angry until something is powerful enough to take your mind off it.
What if you could find a way to just feel through it, move through it, and then elevate your mind to its home of peace, joy, and happiness?
Yes, that IS possible. But first, you DO need to experience these emotions. They DO serve a powerful purpose.
You see, there is no such thing as a negative emotion. Negative emotions – or emotions we simply don’t enjoy experiencing – serve a purpose. They keep us safe. They alert us to danger, and they alert us to when we are straying off our path.
As well as that, they allow us to improve upon our expression. When we are running through those frustrating conversations in our head, filled with anger, anxiety and general upset, we’re learning to express ourselves more powerfully. We’re learning to rephrase things in ways that express our needs more clearly, so that other people can respond accordingly. Not necessarily so that they can serve us and respond to our needs and do what we want exactly, but so that THEY can better understand where we’re coming from.
Because all frustration is is lack of communication. All anger is is when we can’t have something we want, which often boils down to lack of communication.
So when we learn to be more clear in our communication, when we learn to explicitly express what we need to express, then we are better understood. And when we are better understood, then miscommunications don’t become a problem.
So then people can only express anger and frustration at us when they dislike what we communicate. And if they have fully understood our communications, then their anger is their problem.
Of course, we don’t particularly like it when people get angry at us. We DO care what they think, despite a lot of self help gurus and motivational quotes telling us to ignore what other people think. We’re REQUIRED to care.
Because if we didn’t care what anyone thought, we might do mean things, and therefore be excommunicated from our tribe, and then die in the desert without procreating and keeping our species alive.
When we 100% know ourselves, like ourselves, and have confidence in ourselves, THEN we are no longer bothered by what other people think of us. Of course, we still care. We wish our close inner circle of family and friends to like us. And with their support, we are further strengthened in our knowing, liking, and confidence in ourselves. It is THEN that we become BULLETPROOF. THEN the outside world doesn’t bother us.
If you’re not already there, it takes a bit of work to get to this point. But it is SO worth it. To elevate your mind, to elevate your consciousness, to become BULLETPROOF.
