How I deal with the bleakness Uncommon Courage

    • News Commentary

I’ve been a bit blue for a couple of months now. It’s really out of character for me, but I have a strategy I use to help myself break free. However, when you’re feeling like this – whether there’s an external cause or just the reality of the time we’re all going through – the most important thing is not to fight it. Sinking into the emotions, feeling them and when you’re ready, breaking free is the most important part. Getting stuck there is where the real damage is done. 
However, the challenge is, we don’t live in a world that talks about feeling our emotions so much. We have to be positive all the time, right? But when we do this, it means we resist what we are feeling, and I know when I do this, it lasts longer. What you resist, persists! 
I decided to do this, because I know many others are feeling this way right now, and I hope by attempting to share how I approach it, I can help others break free. Let me know what you think?
And if you’re a pal and I’ve been unresponsive, just know it’s because of this. It’s hard to reach out and be social, when you know you’ve just got to go inside and get yourself sorted.
