Let go of difficult emotions

We all have it. That time in our life where we are confronted with our sadness, pain, disappointment, and/or disillusionment. It usually happens when we have expectations of someone or a picture of how we want something in our life to go and instead we are slapped in the face with something that we least expected. Because of this, the hurt and anger can grow inside of us and be difficult to let go of…. Or we just become numb inside. While we may not feel anything, we are unable to let our difficult emotions go and become closed off inside. We either fester on build up walls so that we never have to face the pain that we initially felt ever again.


If you understand what I’m talking about, I want to share a technique for you to begin to finally start to move forward and let go of difficult emotions that stop you from moving forward in life. It first starts with a decision. So… make the decision that you are ready to move forward and are no longer going to be bound to difficult emotions that don’t serve you. 


The second thing that you need to do is have grace with yourself. Oftentimes, we try to  hurry out of emotions and feelings that are perfectly normal to experience in the moment, yet we still want to not take the time to go through the human emotions that are congruent to our journey. This sounds simple, but to simply lean into the feelings means that you are staying open to life and the lessons it brings through challenges. In this space, not avoiding hardships or trying to make yourself tough and closed off, but actually feeling what you were meant to feel….. Comes growth, maturity and opportunity. Opportunity to learn and opportunity to explore and then release what is bothering us.


As humans, we get to explore one of the reasons why we were put on this earth, to feel the feels…. But we also get to use our power of choice and will to release the emotional discomforts we experience in life so that they don’t become an unconscious part of who we are. We acknowledge the truth about life and how there are light and dark parts on our path. While the light is good, the dark doesn’t have to restrict us and instead guide us to a deeper awareness of what is and isn’t for us, cause us to build up strength and fortitude, and allow us to have the courage to work through our pain and move into a space of freedom, flow, and renewal that comes from making the decision to feel what you need to feel, but also learn and grow from those painful experiences and ultimately let them go.


If you are ready to tap into your own personal power and tap into your energy to develop a deeper connection to yourself and learn how to grow and live a more empowered life. Check out my free step-by-step course here https://yashica-crumpton.mykajabi.com/class

Dealing with difficult emotions 

My father used to tell us that he got us from the Indians! It wasn't until I was older that I realized it was a fun and silly story he told.

A gifted man who could spin a tale, he held an audience breathless, waiting for the ending, no matter how many times he played out the plot.

He used to number each of us eight children, me being C6D4, sixth child, fourth daughter.  To say he was an imaginative character was an understatement. 

So when he died in my arms at age 92, grief welled up in my lungs choking me, stealing my breath. I cried for my loss that I would no longer hear, see nor feel this giant of a man.

I literally felt lost.

You see, he moved from New York to California at age 90 to live out his last days with me in my home, as his primary caretaker. These were bittersweet times. He was so strong, yet fragile. Still telling his stories to my children, who sat breathlessly listening. We would sing, dance and laugh up a storm. I recorded so many of his tales. I knew our time together was coming to a close. I didn't want to forget a thing.

He was also very deep emotionally.  We bonded early on when painting the basement of our home, me wrapped in a sheet tied around him, so his arms were free. Or so the story goes. He would always tell me how proud he was of me. At his funeral I told everyone that I was his favorite child, in jest, but he made me feel like I was someone, something important and what I did in the world mattered.

He chronicled his family history tracing back to 1895, proud that our name was on the walls at Ellis Island. This body of work is of great magnitude and he naturally expects us to record our story as it plays out.

Since his death, I've rotated through the stages of grief so many times that it seems unnatural.  People question, "Why do you still feel sad about your Dad's passing "? I wish I knew. All I know is that he's gone and I miss his physical presence.  I really don't think that will ever change. It's gotten better, lighter even, but loss is loss. Something is gone and you know it. In telling this story to you, it helps me and blesses my heart. I like talking about him. And trust me, he's still around.  I hear his words and stories in my ear. 

Let me end with his oft recited dinner toast in the Polish "i tym, którzy nie są już z nami", which translates, ...and to those who are no longer with us.

How do we deal with these difficult emotions? 

We remember + We celebrate

I’m happy to say, I’ve gotten a lot better at letting stuff go over the years.

I’m over the heartache and pain from my ex-boyfriends, over friends I loved no longer wanting to be my friend and over the drama of my parent’s messy divorce.

I’ve even worked through the pain and loss of my father’s death and the avalanche of emotions that came with losing him.

Through working on my personal growth and knowing my own worth I have learned to let go.

Considering the above, I was a bit taken back by a recent discussion with a dear friend.

Sitting out in my courtyard one night, I expressed my concern, frustration (and if I’m being totally honest) anger over a particular situation in my life.

While I was venting to my friend, she said – ‘You need to let that go’.

My response was – ‘But I’m still right in the middle of it.’

Let me give you a little of the back story. A particular decision made by someone else changed my life at the end of 2015.

While I know 2015 was a long time ago, part of the problem is I only just found out the real reason my life was changed by this person’s decision.

Up to that point, I’d no idea why it had happened.

Though I had been making progress on letting go, finding out the reason (which itself was completely unreasonable) bought up a lot of negative feelings and resentment.


However, there’s not the main issue.


The problem is I’m still dealing with the consequences of that decision on a daily basis. This isn’t some feeling I’m holding onto, it’s part of my everyday experience.

It’s like my friend is telling me to put the umbrella down because the storm is over while I’m still getting rained on.

While I know my friend is right about having to let it go, it made me realize that letting go when you are still in the middle of the consequences is a lot harder.


So how do we let go of what happened when we are smack bang in the middle of a crisis?

Here are my thoughts on letting go of what happened (and heads up I am still working through these myself) so there might be a few mixed emotions flying around and more vulnerability than in some of my other posts.

Important Note – I am not a medical practitioner or trained therapist so if you are struggling with depression, anxiety or suspect you may have a mental illness, please seek out the help of a medical professional. If letting go of a trauma in your past is seriously affecting your life, please seek professional help.


DEAL WITH THE FEELINGS

First, we need to acknowledge our feelings. Then we need to deal with them.

Acknowledging our feelings and dealing with them can be quite different beasts.

It’s the difference between “I feel angry because of …. ” and “What am I going to do to move through the anger I’m feeling?”

Many of us (including me) can sometimes get stuff at door number one.

If you feel like you need professional help then please get some. There is no shame in asking for help. I’ve worked with counselors over two or three sessions and they have really helped.

I worked with a personal coach (granted quite different from a counselor or therapist) for many years and it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself.

Whatever you decide is best for you, it’s important you deal with your feelings.
