Chase the highs and fall gently

by Emma

We are all emotional beings. It is part of our inner make up, and our external facade. We chase the highs, and swallow the lows like medicine, that nasty tasting liquid.

Life is also balanced. It needs to remain polorised and adequately structured. Every high has a possible low. Every low can be followed with a high. It can be chaotic, and emotionally exhausting. Nobody ever promised life was easy.

The problem only arises when we become internalised with the lows. When we question. When we continously analyse.

When we are high, when we are soaring, my god it feels good. Yet the problem is, the higher you fly, the fall becomes greater. At least the emotional aspect of the metaphor. The higher we feel, the higher the deflation can impact.

So what do we do? How can we chase the negative demons away? In therapy, I always promote the strength of positive thought and self belief. This is indeed meaningful in self realisation and inner clarity. However sometimes we need a little bit more. Acceptance. We need to accept that things are not always so clear cut and easy. We need to accept that the lows are part of the journey. A journey filled with sugar, can handle the odd grain of salt. What we also need to accept is that if the lows become more prominent than the highs, then this indeed may be a signal to make a change. Happiness is exquisite. It is warm and fuzzy. This emotion should be enough to warm the cooler areas, and make them manageable. If it does not, maybe the highs simply are not high enough. Maybe the journey simply needs a detour, or change of direction. We are all emotional beings and we all deserve to reach those stars ☆

The mind of a deep thinker…or complete rubbish…it is all down to interpretation and perception…
