There are times we tend to ignore what’s going on inside of us because it’s unpleasant and sometimes, we even deny it. Dealing with emotions can be hard, particularly difficult emotions and society controlled emotions like shame, jealousy and so on. However, ignoring them or even denying them is not healthy.
Think of it like that chair in your room that takes all your clothes you refuse to sort out. At the time, it’s very convenient because you can simply throw your clothes there when you take it off. Eventually, if you don’t sort it out, it piles. For the mean time, it’s not really a bother because your bed space is clear for you to sleep and relax but when you get into your room, you always have to behold the site. As time goes on, it becomes an eyesore and you have no choice but to sort them out and clear that chair. That is how it is when you don’t sort out and deal with your emotions. It might be convenient at the moment but with time, it piles and it becomes uncomfortable. The amazing thing is that one day, it’ll have to be sorted out.
It’s not easy, I promise you. If it were, you would have done it already. Ignoring it though doesn’t help you too. It’s important you resolve or sort out your emotions, why you feel the way you feel or why you behave the way you do. The earlier, the better.
Do you even know that God helps with that? Try asking Him to help you resolve things and be better. Then watch Him show you unpleasant and difficult things about yourself you need to deal with. The good thing is, God helps with that, you just have to be honest with Him and accept His help.
Did I mention it won’t be as easy as I’ve made it sound?
I wish you the best.
