As far back as I can remember I have been emotional, even as a child. I remember my parents trying their best to understanding me. I couldn’t explain.

The problem deepened as I could pick up on others’ emotions. I was an emotional mess.

As I grew into adulthood, I began to educate myself on emotions. This has been a beautiful journey. A journey of discovery. Instead of “fixing” my emotions, I began to understand myself.

I am a beautifully complex woman. I have the power to pick up others’ feelings, but I don’t let them consume me. My shield goes up. Knowing the emotions of others helps with the knowledge of seeing the rawness of where they are coming from. I can understand people better and help them the best I can without being tied to their emotions.

There is a beauty in rawness. It takes me back to the core of who I am. I still have moments where my emotions can take me to that place. This is not a time to make decisions. This is my time for self-love.

Today my emotions and I work together. We are in harmony. When problems arise I know my emotional pattern. I let the process run its course.

I don’t act on my emotions anymore. If I make decisions on emotions it ends up causing pain for everyone involved. I don’t like hurting others. This breaks my heart. I am an emotional wreck when I realize I didn’t handle a situation well.

I had to stop that pattern. By understanding the beauty of my emotions I have grown into a better person.

My emotions and I work in harmony. I can’t make a decision without them. I am tuned in to my inner self. I am comfortable with who I am. I am perfectly imperfect enjoying all the beauty my emotions bring.
