This article has been sitting in my drafts for months. I have attempted to write about the process of feeling our feelings and yet, I came up short every time. Every time I tried to put something constructive onto paper, it never read right or made little sense. I just couldn’t put my feelings down on paper.
I realised recently, I am only as wise as I am today and often, I’m not that wise.
While I may feel like I know everything at this moment because I have experienced my life subjectively, sometimes I need to be patient and allow new information, new feelings or new experiences to come into my life and to the surface so I can express them in ways that are manageable and concise.
I needed to really understand what ‘feeling my feelings’ meant, be humble enough to acknowledge that I am not the smartest in the room and also be vulnerable enough to say that sometimes the process hurts and it’s not as simple as attempting to intellectually decipher them. So here is the new attempt of the blog, with a little more vulnerability and humility. Hopefully it makes sense and can help.
