That's a simple question. It's one we may get asked multiple times a day. Most of us respond with an automatic, 'I'm fine'. Are you fine? How is your soul? How is your heart? How are your relationships? What's causing you pain today? Do you have a safe place in which you can have these conversations? Do you journal to get it all out? How do you release all the emotions inside?
If we don't have a healthy way of expression or a safe place we may find that our emotions tend to leak out in the most inopportune times. For example: If your feelings got hurt at work and you don't address them you may find that your reactions are bigger than normal. This is true for any emotion.
We all need a safe place to process, vent, share, and gain perspective. Even (especially) your strong friends. Check in with your people. Look into their eyes. Pay attention to their body language. We all need a good friend, a safe place to be vulnerable. You don't have to be strong all the time.
If you have one or two good friends who fit this description send them a text and tell them how much you appreciate their friendship. Forward this email to the women in your life who need to know they are not alone. We are all in this together.
