The often popular idea that admitting, expressing or even feeling those “bad”, “negative” or “ugly” feelings is somehow saying that we are weak or not spiritual enough is crap. There is no shame in feeling pain or sadness or grief. There is no apologizing that needs to occur and often there is no fixing that needs to happen. If we would just allow ourselves the space to feel what we feel and be strong enough to allow others the space they need to feel what they feel there would be less pain in this world, because when we stuff, hide, deny or lie about pain we create more pain. When we give our pain space and time to move through, it often will, naturally, on it’s own. In our human experience we are given every opportunity to grow and expand, sometimes it is painful but when we allow it, we do exactly that, grow and expand.
