Are You Just Living In Your Own Little World?

What a question I ask this week. Perhaps this may seem a little weird and may appear to have nothing to do with well-being nor life but it is not like so. This past week I learned a news that leaves me grieving and it’s the loss of a loved one. Even though we are not related by blood, this family means so much to me because of all they have given to me and because of them, I am who I am and where I am today in life. I had no idea this family that I love so much had so much going on because I had been living in my own little world all this time, losing touch with them.

One of the biggest mistakes we make as human beings is getting so wrapped up in our own little world that we forget that other people also have their own world, filled with things going on. Even if you have a lot going on, it is crucial to your well-being to reach out to others, check up on others and share love. Whether you realize it or not, love is one of the greatest assets you have that you can share with others and the more you share, the more you will have. It is the one thing that I think most of us tend to take for granted and this is one crucial element to one’s well-being and to having a rich life.

It is normal that when you have so much going on to just live in your own little world, preoccupied with all that is going on with you. But I am here to say in today’s post that by living in your own little world, you are missing out on so much that is going on with others. I think with this post I can not stress enough how important it is to also make it a point to contact others, to reach out to others, to let others know how much you love them, how much they mean to you. It doesn’t matter how much you have going on, it doesn’t matter how much you have on your mind, don’t forget to spread some love and thought to others.

“How can I do this Aura when I truly have so much going on with me that I feel I don’t have enough for others?” you may ask. I truly understand that there are moments where it may be hard to even think of reaching out to others because you may truly have so much going on. However, this past week made me realize that by you getting so wrapped up in your own little world, it may just be too late to let someone know how much you love them. By living in your own little world, you disconnect from the world outside of you which is so vast. It is crucial no matter what is going on to share love and thought to others because life indeed is too fragile. We all in some way may have some sort of pain and that pain feels less when we reach out to others so in essence, you reaching out to others is so therapeutic as well. The world is so much more than just ourselves and when we realize that, the way we view life, the way we view others, the way we treat and interact with others will be different for the better.

Life is so much more beautiful when we share with others- share love, share compassion, share understanding, share thoughts. I guarantee you that by reaching out to others, by sharing love with others, by reminding others that they are in your thoughts, you will grow in well-being and happiness.

Don’t Bottle In Your Emotions Nor What You Are Thinking When Feeling Low

Feeling and showing vulnerability is something that perhaps many don’t feel comfortable with and perhaps many may feel like this is a weakness. Well, I think if one thinks this is a weakness, then it is implying that being human is being weak because as human beings we all have and will have moments of vulnerability. It is only natural. When feeling vulnerable, it is very important not to bottle in your emotions nor what you are thinking when feeling on the low side.

Bottling your emotions, rather than showing strength, can weaken you. How so? I don’t know about you but it feels like too much effort to keep all to myself what I am feeling when feeling low. As human beings, it is only natural to have your ups and downs. Even though I think part of living life to the fullest is choosing happiness, (because happiness is a choice), I think part of that happiness and well-being is embracing all emotions, even the not so good ones. I have said it before and I will say it again, emotions can be an indicator of what is going on inside you. It is a way to measure how your soul feels. Sharing with someone that you know you can trust and who is not judgmental of what you feel can be so liberating and healthy. Make sure, though, that it is someone that you know you can trust because I am one to believe that if you tell the wrong person, you can actually feel worse and that’s no good. So make sure it is someone who will truly understand you and be uplifting.

I think that bottling your emotions and any negative thoughts is like a volcano with lava bubbling up waiting to erupt. You are what you think and feel and there is only so much that you can bottle up when feeling sad or angry. It is important to release, in a healthy way, what you are feeling and share your thoughts with someone you know loves you and cares about you. Someone that truly loves you, when knowing you have some negative thoughts in your mind, would knock some sense into you.

I believe showing vulnerability is a sign of strength because it takes courage to expose yourself. With this said, there is no shame in feeling a bit in the low side, just don’t remain there for your well-being. Share with someone you love what is going on. If you need professional help, then get the help you need, and try to understand what it is that is causing you to feel this way. For your well-being it is crucial that you don’t keep your emotions bottled in if you feel they are eating you up inside. It is important for every other area of your life that you have a mental and emotional balance in life and you do this by keeping these areas of your life in check.
