It's okay to feel your feelings and still be a good friend. Anybody constantly overriding your feelings with a reminder of how bad things are for them - with a monopoly on sad has work to do in being a good friend. Pain is pain - everyone has it and there's no monopoly on who can feel it. In fact, the more we allow those feelings to be felt and moved through the more empathic and compassionate we will be. FEEL THOSE FEELINGS! Love, Angie #mantrasfortherestofus #lovingkindness
Just because we feel and feel strongly about our feelings doesn’t mean that those feelings have permission to control us.
If your feelings overwhelm you try my handy dandy tool of setting a timer and giving yourself a certain amount of time to feel those feelings.
You can set that timer 20 times that first day, but not 20 times back to back.
Maybe, at first you say I’m going to feel angry for 5 minutes and when that timer goes off you say to yourself- we are not going to s
Often my feelings and how my life is playing out dictates my self-worth but it doesn’t have too. My worth doesn’t change because my feelings change.

What helps you feel centered? What comforts the loneliness or ache in your heart?
You know better what you need than anyone else.
If you’re not sure what is comforting to you, that’s not unusual and you can do some exploring and find things that help you feel loved and connected and throw out the ones that don’t. You hold all the cards and you are worth connecting too.

Feelings Nothing More Than Feelings🎶 Feelings are not “just” feelings, they are the nuts and bolts of our pain and sorrow, our laughter and joy - what makes us uniquely us and uniquely human.
Feelings are the connective tissue that keeps us aware and interconnected to who we are-body, soul, and spirit- but even more than that, feelings keep us connected to the deep Who of who we really are underneath all the pretense and survival.
But, hell, feelings can be brutal and hit
Today sitting in my living room shivering from the cold, that's what living in a house built in 1898 feels like. I realized that I have gotten back into an old habit of mine. A habit that I have not consciously participated in for some years- clinching my jaw, grinding my teeth, and wearing my shoulders for earrings. I was shivering at my computer working and scanning the internet, scrolling through all the beauty and vitriol that is social media. When I realized... I don't t
There are tools in life that help us more quickly gain access to the places inside us that have been locked away, hidden or just unknown to us. This is one of those tools. Nine years ago I was given a key, that at the time seemed, well, let's just say painful to use. Because often self-work is painful. Imagine a door that refuses to move, it's rusted shut. With work and movement, over time that door starts to gradually move again. At first with muscles, sweat, and grease in t
