Knots in my tummy
No wonder I suffer from anxiety – I had a really crap day yesterday, and without going into too much detail, my tummy feels like it has literally got knots tied through it in many different places (and given that my tummy is quite large these days, that’s quite a few knots, I’ll have you know.)
The thing with anxiety is this: when stress hits, you need to learn to work all those stressful emotions OUT of your system. Otherwise, it’ll just stay put – building up, until you eventually explode. Or panic. So, what did I do? I went to gym – and it actually helped. It’s the first time I did something like that – try and work the negative emotions out of my system, instead of holding on to them, because the power of the feeling really makes one feel alive.
It didn’t last long when hubby and I had a disagreement late last night, and I woke up with more knots in my tummy this morning, but at least now I know that I need to find a release for all these negative emotions. Almost like your exhaust pipe of your car being broken and all those awful gases and fumes going back into your car – so, not good. And that is the same with our emotions – we need to find an outlet, get it out of the system. And I think going to gym last night was a good way to go. And as for my hubby and I last night – well, I think a good heart-to-heart is on the cards for tonight. In the interim, I will focus on work and try work through some of the negative emotions before tonight.
Oh, if only I could’ve always been so wise – its taken me 40 years to learn what I am learning now. And I wish I could just let it go already.
