~your emotions are valid~
THIS IS TRUE! And... what’s also important is the way you express your ~valid~ emotions.
For example, if you’re feeling angry, the challenge is effectively expressing an intense negative emotion
Remember, anger does not equal yelling, hitting, or breaking something - those are behaviors.
Effectively communicating to your partner that you feel angry might look something like “I’m feeling angry because I wanted to spend time with you this weekend but I wasn’t able to do that because you had to work”
Saying something like this lets them know what’s going on for you in a non-aggressive and direct way. Plus, your partner will likely feel less defensive when they respond to you.
Additionally, what might be helpful is really asking yourself what you hope to gain from letting your partner know how you feel. Is it because you want to feel heard? Feel respected? Feel important?
Whatever it might be, it’s important to know how you feel and what you hope to gain from letting your partner know @alexpack.therapy

True emotional healing provides you with radical clarity.
At my EMDR training, the instructor kept emphasizing that we should warn people of this reality.
Once you really see what has been happening in your life, feel it, and allow your brain to make sense of it all, it’s really hard to go back.
Emotional healing means that a lot of relationships might start to feel like they suck. You may start to notice that your interactions with some people are draining and unfulfilling.
You might not get the same joy from meddling and intervening in other’s lives.
People in your life might tell you you’ve changed. They may even get angry with you.
You might feel really damn lonely.
This is actually a good thing. It means you’re really making progress.
Healing isn’t about becoming so numb and unreactive that nothing bothers you.
Yes, you will fell less triggered and more in charge of your emotions. But you will also have way less interest in participating in dysfunctional dynamics.
You will know your worth. You will feel empowered through your actions.
15 years ago @mcdizraeli and I crossed paths, to then appear and disappear from each other's life since. #Poet#Mc#musician#vocalist and more, he made #music then that blew me away and makes music now that makes me think that talent isn't just a thing we do, it's how we deal with #life . Self, transformation, connection, survival: his new opus "The Un-Master" is all of these amongst many others. A story of loosing faith in the very bonds between the atoms that makes us, and trying to understand the idea of rebuilding from within. .
15 years down the line,he asked me to create #photography surrounding this project and based on our conversations: Uncertainty, #Anxiety, Chaos, Self Worth, #Pressure...until bursting point. This is the front cover we chose and the inner sleeve, playing with #dysmorphia and #suffocation, this self-release is OUT NOW... Have you ever reached that point? How do you lift yourself back up? Can you find peace, in being the "Un-master" of your life?
