It was difficult for me to deal with other people’s emotions because I didn’t know how to deal with my own in a healthy way. I think it bothered me when my children cried when they were sad, hurt, or afraid because it felt like I was like looking into a mirror and seeing something I wasn’t willing to do myself.
Have you ever decided to de-clutter your home and something triggered you? While giving away what doesn’t bring me joy anymore, I had an opportunity to dig deep into my emotions. They can take you places you didn’t think you needed to go.
