When we don't acknowledge what we're experiencing and how it feels, we're denying a powerful part of our existence. When we deny our existence, we're using Life giving storage space in our bodies to "hold" those experiences.
The next moments are compromised with less of us available to "show up". If we've denied our processing, we miss the lessons that result from "doing the work".
When Life hurts, say "ouch". Feel it, cry if you have to, but do what you need to for healing. (forgive?) Now dry your eyes...the next moment is already here and you're needed...and wiser.
