Day 4 of Personal Growth with our Emotions

As I was recording this I realized that very recently I struggled with this. One thing after another was happening and it just kept piling up. Everything caught me off guard. I found myself spiraling down the negative hole and I hated how it was making me feel. Instead of only being there for a moment or two, I was there for hours and it seemed to be becoming days.

I have been doing so well so these feelings were really getting to me. I hated how they were making me feel and I knew the only person to blame was myself.

Well it turns out I was not relying on the exact tools I just spoke about. Looking back I can see that I was shallow breathing when I was even breathing. I like to breathe less when stressed. The exact time I need to be breathing bigger, deeper breaths and I am just holding it instead.

Well I have since resumed my deep breathing exercises and I feel a whole lot better. I made it through my challenges that I thought might pull me under. Not only did I make it through, I am stronger for it.

We can get through the struggles we face and if you feel like you can’t please just reach out. Listen to my podcast. I am speaking to you!!! We CAN do this. Together!!!!
