Taking Out the Emotional Trash
By Jason Chaussee, Certified Master Transformation Coach
You know how sometimes your garbage gets that funky smell because it needs to be taken out? The longer it sits, the worse it smells. After a while, it starts stinking so strong that it starts impacting your ability to focus and concentrate. It’s been sitting around too long and you need to deal with it.
The same thing happens internally when you hold onto emotional garbage. Even if you walk around it and pretend you don’t see it, it’s still stinking things up inside of you and impacts your current thought process and decisions and even your physical health.
We collect garbage over the years as we experience life. Maybe we had a rough childhood. Maybe our parents were alcoholics. Maybe someone hurt us very badly. Maybe we were traumatized. Maybe it’s current garbage like you’re in a bad relationship.
Every time something negative happens, we have to emotionally process it. If we process the emotions well, we can minimize the scars. But oftentimes we don’t process our emotions well. We don’t take the time to fully experience our emotions and try to rush the healing process.
Or we pretend the hurt didn’t happen and stuff it down deep.
Or we let the hurt continue by staying in a bad relationship.
None of these are healthy ways to process emotions. So, we end up with a big pile of trash inside of us, poisoning us emotionally and oftentimes physically.
Imagine you were bit by a dog. How you emotionally process the situation is going to impact your future attitudes, feelings, and behaviors. Are you going to fear all dogs forever? Are you going to fear all animals? What if you meet the perfect partner and they have a dog? Will you tell them to get rid of the dog? What would that do to your relationship?
Carrying around all that garbage can negatively impact your future. Maybe it’s time to take out the trash and process those negative emotions so that you are no longer carrying them around.
Imagine your ex-partner cheated on you. That’s big garbage to carry around. Now you’re in a new relationship but you’re having a hard time trusting. You are constantly checking up on your partner and looking at their behaviors under a microscope. What kind of impact will that have on your relationship?
Maybe it’s time to work through those old hurts so that they don’t negatively impact you today.
Get rid of the garbage.
And sometimes when we stay in a bad situation, the garbage just keeps accumulating. And the piles get so high that we’re surrounded by it and we start to think that it’s normal.
How much garbage is accumulating in your life at this moment?
Every time we experience hurt, there’s garbage attached to it. It’s up to us to take out the garbage. Sometimes we carry that garbage around for a very long time and it almost becomes a part of us. We have a hard time imagining who we are without that garbage. But we are not our garbage.
Sometimes we’re not even aware of the garbage that we’re carrying.
Who do you want to make decisions for you?
Or your garbage?
To find your true authentic self, you have to get rid of all the layers of garbage.
Find the real you.
What garbage are you carrying around? What do you need to deal with?
