The *Real* Reasons You’re Mad + Sad, Part 2 EP#339

Mar 22, 2020

Have you ever felt anger boiling up inside of you but instead of processing it, you drink a bit too much, throw yourself into your work, try to “mantra” it away, or ignore it altogether? Or how about situations of extreme sadness? Tell yourself, “You have nothing to be sad about. Stop being so dramatic. Other people have it so much worse than you.”

If you have ever found yourself feeling down in the dumps or super pissed, but ended up concluding that you “just need a drink” or decide to chant a positive mantra like “This too, shall pass” instead of actually dealing with said emotion, you are certainly not alone. Our culture does not, by a long shot, promote processing and dealing with emotions. We are taught to run from them and “sweep them under the rug” or “buck up, Buttercup”.

Last week I dug into the true source of sadness and anger… Grief. And, I know that sounds super dramatic, right!? I mean… you aren’t dealing with a death or anything. So, it couldn’t be grief. If that word seems tough to swallow, think of it as “processing”. It’s like you still have something to Process.

In this episode, I dig into our capacity for emotional intelligence, how you can create a shit-ton of relief and healing in your life if you simply acknowledge what you’re feeling, and what it actually looks like to really do that.

This pod explores:

  • The number one thing you need to know about dealing with emotions in a powerful way (and it goes against everything you’ve been taught… fair warning)
  • What it really looks like to “sit with” an emotion (and no, you don’t have to be all vulnerable with a stranger)
  • A litany of ways you can process your anger and sadness (without losing your mind) so you can get back to feeling happy and peaceful
