I’ve been thinking a lot about how much emotion we constantly control and hide. I expect it of my kids (“stop crying!”) and we expect it of each other, not wanting to make someone feel uncomfortable with our expressions of sadness, anger, or whatever it may be. In Braving the Wilderness, @brenebrown talks about this very thing “...when we deny our emotion, it owns us. When we own our emotion, we can rebuild and find our way through the pain.” So for this piece, I wanted to consider and explore the ways I hide my own emotions... considering those moments where I choose control over expression. Maybe if we were all a little more willing to express our deepest emotions, and were willing to connect with our bodies, we would be able to better honor and love one another as fellow human beings? So much to ponder.
