Emotional Detox​ – Day 7. Look For The Unicorn

Happiness is all around,
If you just look for it.
Not so much as look for it but look at it,
You will find it in so many places.
Someone told you it’s hard,
Someone made you feel like
You don’t deserve it,
You will never find it
So you stopped looking,
But oh, if you just look..

I have known darkness,
I have been so dark
That any light that fell on me
Disappeared inside.

I have known light,

Emotional Detox – Day 4. The Joy Is Real

It’s as if Joy is always flowing
Like the air all around us
But we roam around with a lung
Full of dark smokes of anger, worry, hate and guilt,
Wondering how can people look as happy as they do.
Then one day we breathe out that dark smoke,

Sometimes when I am looking at the sun
The hills, or the stars, the moon or at the vastness of the ocean
All the darkness fades away from the periphery
And all I see is light, the beauty, the magnificence,
The air fills me up

Emotional Detox​ – Day 2. Fallen Birds

What if birds were never told
That they can fly?
No one showed them how
And no birds that they knew ever flew,
Do you think they would even try?

Emotional Detox​ – Day 1. Rope Of Hope

Hi There!

I have decided to go on an emotional detox. Which means that for the coming days (Let’s see how many) As much as I can, I will only think, speak or write positive things, only watch positive videos or movies, only read positive books and treat myself well. I will remind myself to be grateful for the things I have and focus on the things that I want in life. The most difficult part of the detox and the most important one will be making a conscious and continuous effort to only feel positive emotions. Any time I encounter a negative emotion, I will do my best to walk away from it and shift my thoughts and eventually my emotions towards a positive direction. I will do things that make me happy and maybe once in a while even pamper myself. How is that for authentic? 😉

Emotional Addiction & How To Break Free

After studying the work of many experts this is what I understand, If you can’t control your emotional state then there’s a good chance you are addicted to it.

Emotional addiction works exactly like any substance addiction. It starts with a rewarding stimulus. Initially, in a difficult situation, you cried or got stressed or felt sad, either someone comforted you or you just felt a rush. Sadness is an easily accessible strong emotion compared to a positive strong emotion like intense Joy, exhilaration or a strong dose of happiness. It’s as if for us humans, feeling something strong is always better than feeling nothing or feeling something average.  Continue reading “Emotional Addiction & How To Break Free”
