This week I have found myself in my feels a lot. I think of myself as emotionally available but balanced so I was a little perplexed. Talking with my therapist today she suggested a reason for my recent low mood – projection. This is when people take unwanted emotions they don’t like about themselves and put them on others. Words of affirmation are my second love language and that can be a double edged sword. As much as words from loved ones can build me up, the same words uttered in anger can tear me down. This leads me to ruminate on the hurtful things said leaving me downhearted.

I use different mechanisms to cope; sometimes food (not the best), humour or conversation with a trusted friend. These all work to some extent but I realise nothing works quite like time. Feelings as intense as they feel are only temporary so I often remind myself of a certain verse when I get low.

Fear, what happens on Earth stays on Earth
And I can’t take these feelings with me, so hopefully, they disperse

Within fourteen tracks, carried out over wax
Searchin’ for resolutions until somebody get back

Peace and Love,
