Feeling a bit trapped in the web of emotions was my plight last night. We humans have fought the enemy in me one time or other and I seem to be fighting her A LOT lately. We must come to terms with our baggage and begin to unpack as hard as it might be, it must be done. I can hear donkey from the movie Shrek in my head saying, “you’re like an onion with all those layers”. Lmbooooooo
Last night I was pondering about a situation and I had to tell myself what I was feeling was ok. I took a pause and said It’s ok to myself about five or six times, then the tears came. (tears are medicine to me) I’m actually able to feel love again and it’s good. I don’t have a cinder block wall, with barb wire, and an electric fence to guard my heart. I’m able to navigate and control my emotions on a deeper level.(PRAISE THE LIVING GOD) I can feel joy and gladness in such a way that is so new to me.
Some of you may be saying, should I feel this way about a person that I like if I’m not sure how they feel? The answer is yes but with a word of advice. Embrace the fact that you can feel and remain true to yourself. This will come easy if you know who you are.
I know I hit a nerve and I make no apologies. People will lose themselves feeling a certain way about another person and that’s dangerous. You need to be strong enough to control your feelings and not let your feelings control you.
Here is my hilarious list of OK’s with a splash of wisdom…….
Its ok to reread the text message because it made you smile but don’t make it your daily devotional and bedtime story.
It’s ok to take time for yourself but don’t forget other people need you.
It’s ok to feel the love but make sure you control your emotions.
It’s ok to spend money on yourself but make sure your rent is paid.
It’s ok to eat ice cream for breakfast but don’t make it a habit.
It’s ok to be you just make sure you know who you are.
