Every one of us has from time to time ‘gone through the motions’ and felt a wide range of ‘colours’ upon the emotional spectrum. From seeing red to feeling blue, we all have an understanding of what it feels like to be emotional and to experience a range of feelings in accordance with various life situations that we may be confronted with.
Emotions are how we react to whatever life events we may be facing. The emotion is how it’s interpreted by us in reaction to these particular events. But what happens when you repress your emotions down so as to avoid conflict? This is when the trouble begins.
We are all running our own subconscious mind programming that determines our belief systems. The way we see the world is determined by this programming and enables us to act and react in accordance with this. For example we may have a set of beliefs about ourselves that limit us from reaching our true potential and so we fail to go to that networking event out of fear that it’s not for us or we won’t be able to make any progress with the people there as they may reject us. Networking is really about learning to get through these social barriers and to confront our fears head on.
In the same way we may face rejection in our personal lives and it can hurt deeply, we need to let go of any expectation about the long-term outcome and just enjoy what we have in the present moment. For the present moment is all we ever really have. Once we learn to let go of the situation and to enjoy ourselves and what we’re doing, that energy becomes contagious and we start inviting in more positive situations and people into our lives as a result.
