Slowly they start to rise.
Closer to the surface.
Trying to hold them inside is useless.
For me it is a combination of the following:
And several million other emotions.
The eruption is inevitable.
So what do you do?
Three options that come to mind:
1. Ignore your emotions and say everything is “fine.”
2. Allow negative emotions to take over.
3. Use your emotions to create something positive.
I try to choose #3 as much as possible, but often fail.
The other options require much less effort.
Be aware that another eruption is ALWAYS coming.
Just knowing that can help you gauge where you are.
I challenge you to be intentional with how you respond.
Do you feel this tension as well? How do you recognize it? Please share in the comments.
