Emotional balance is the ability to remain present in your emotions without being consumed by them and without avoidance. It is a skill well worth learning, how to feel your emotions and identify how they affect your mind and your body. Think about physical pain, how it becomes second nature for us to avoid the fire that will burn us, or the sharp object that will penetrate our skin.
We are equally as good at avoiding the emotional pain that causes us to feel overwhelmed or weak, we work, stay busy, or indulge in activities that help us ignore the one thing that is screaming to be let out. This may work for while, even years, but the body always remembers these emotional burdens and like a festering splinter eventually that emotional pain will demand your attention once again.
Establishing Emotional Balance is about aligning our bodies and our minds and embodying our emotions and feelings. Being able to use the information provided to us through our senses to navigate our lives, so as to not keep making the same mistakes over and over again. How many times do we fall into the same patterns of behaviour? End up crying the same tears over and over?
It does not have to be this way, we are all capable of becoming emotionally mature and can remain in control of our own lives, even the really bad stuff, that affects every aspect of our lives can be used for our own good and personal development. Counselling can help you sort through these issues and put them to rest, so that you can become the very best version of yourself!
‘Authentic happiness is not linked to an activity; it is a state of being, a profound emotional balance struck by a subtle understanding of how the mind functions’
