Friendly Tip: “Reclaim Your Emotional Equilibrium”
About a week after giving birth to LeReine, I had this overwhelming feeling of anxiousness because I was excited about being a mother. I felt like I had finally accepted (well somewhat accepted) that my life would look very differently forever.
When I thought about my future with LeReine, I was overjoyed! I experienced so much joy that I wanted to cry.
Wait, have you ever experienced being so overjoyed that you wanted to cry? Did you over analyze the situation? Yes this was my moment too.
Frankly, I wanted to boooo-hooo! When I thought about this level of crying I started to over analyze why I was crying, then I tried to hold back the tears. I quickly realized that crying was necessary at this particular time. So guess what? I cried…I probably cried for an entire day, maybe an entire week. LOL.
You too will experience this same moment when you have given birth to your baby. You will experience a moment of joy and then you might feel like you need to cry. LET IT OUT! Cry.
I learned that crying is not necessarily a sign of weakness, it is actually a sign that you need to “Reclaim Your Emotional Equilibrium.” For some reason, I was afraid of crying (maybe because of my A-Type personality). You too might feel like you don’t want to cry; and you need to, so cry it out!
Ask GOD for the answers. He will let you know if it is time to rebalance your emotions. When you do, you will find rest in him. Until next week,
Good Night Friend.
Scripture Reading: Psalms 34:4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
Friendly Activity: This week get alone and ask GOD to show you what you need to release. Give yourself permission to cry it out. Journal the experience.
