What's needed to heal our emotional core is the space to take care of difficult emotions without guilt, without requirement to be someone we're not.
We don't get enough space from social requirements, from this constant doing that our culture instills in us.
Sometimes, when we're in the middle of the action - during a work day, or running from place to place shopping for the Holidays, or being the with kids - these difficult emotions can come up and stop our ability to focus on what we're doing.
When a panic attack, or sudden regret, or one of those states where you look around and notice what other people have and not you, it's hard to do the emotional work of talking and engaging with others, while at the same time trying to understand what in the heck is going on in your head.
This causes conflict. Conflict causes stress. Stress agitates Meniere's.
That's why I say that it's ok to take a minute, tell people you need to go into the kitchen for a glass or water or run to the restroom if you're at the mall, while you gather your forces.
In fact simple things you say to people like "I'll be right back, I need to run to the kitchen for a minute" act as a shield for your inner emotional core, because they give you space to feel, to acknowledge, and to reengage when you've had a moment.
I made a video for you about giving yourself permission to use your shield if you're experiencing any of these unexpected emotions.
Let me know what you think.
