#SilentSunday ‘Don’t let anyone make you hard’ #sixwords

I was thinking about how easy it is to lose my temper, get angry, or feel upset and vulnerable. So, I was tempted to build a safety wall to protect my fragile emotional response and keep my feelings safe, but I realised I run the risk of becoming as hard as the wall I wanted to build.

I can be hard, like a wall, or soft like a tiny flower.

I can refuse to let feelings in, or perhaps a better strategy is to embrace these feelings, accept them and move on to the next, after all, they won’t last forever.

Be soft, let the feelings flow in and out. Don’t keep them in or lock them out.

Happy Sunday!
