Road Block

Monday, September 18, 2017

Feeling stuck, confused, and unmotivated to see past my reality. I’m not the best at dealing with my feelings. I usually just suppress them until I get to a breaking point. What I've come to realize is that my lack of dealing with my emotions was causing a major road block in my growth of self. Even with me knowing that my emotions were the cause of me not growing I still refused to deal with them. By me not dealing with my feelings I didn't know what direction I should've been going in. Then, I started questioning self and tried to figure out what was wrong with me. The thing is nothing is wrong with me; I just needed to ask myself the right questions. What should I do next?

The answer to that question is to pay close attention to my feelings, and not to ignore them.


It's so unhealthy to hold in how we feel. We must find a healthy way to release those emotions. The most important and most challenging thing we must do during this process is, to be honest with ourselves. Sometimes I still have a hard time being honest about how I feel. I would mask how I felt because I didn't want people to see my imperfections. I didn't want people to see what I thought was me being weak. Being that way was blocking me from seeing growth. What if I showed how I was truly feeling, then someone could've helped me with what I was experiencing. Don't be afraid for people to see the real you, and don't be afraid for YOU to see the real YOU


I know facing your feelings isn't an easy task, but you will soon see much growth. I also had to learn how not to concern myself with what people were thinking of me. Just remember that you aren't weak, you're just human, and you're not alone. Acknowledge your feelings and unblock your journey so that you can continue your way to your purpose.

Thank you for reading!

    Also they say "your eyes tell a story", well your eyes tell a story! Love to read about your feelings and I had the same issues... like a block in my road while trying to grow up... it all takes time, but it's useful to look deep within ourselves to find how to survive and jump the obstacles xx
