Health and relationships are closely tied together, influencing every area of our life. When we nurture our bodies and relationships with conscious self-care and self-management, we're not only better connected to our soul, but to each other.
So, what happens when we're not taking care of ourselves? We begin to consume a high diet of toxic foods, which really, is an accumulation of unprocessed, toxic emotions such as rejection, abandonment, neglect, unworthiness and heartbreak.
We say we want to be healthier, lose weight and find love, but our actions show how we often sabotage, push, block, or waste time by the patterns we continually repeat over and over again. Most of us face a yo-yo effect which feels like two steps forward, one step back. We lose weight, we gain it back. We meet someone we like, but one or the other loses interest and it ends.
We haven't learned how to work through the pain of these setbacks in a way that intimately connects us back into our body and partner. Instead, our unprocessed emotions and fears of failure separate us from our own spiritual guidance, body and partner.
Most of the time, we haven't fully processed our pain. It hurts. Instead of running to it, we run from it. We cover and layer it up with moments of fleeting (not sustaining) happiness and "healthy" habits. What I've learned about unprocessed emotions is that they always find ways to reveal and project themselves.
Just like love, when our bodies don't heal, it will protect itself with a layer of scar tissue. The problem with scar tissue is that it blocks our new skin cells from coming in and healing. When our hearts harden like scar tissue, we sabotage and destroy love.
Vulnerability, on the other hand, allows you to dig deep and break free from scar issue. It's the only thing that faces and consoles fear, rather than temporarily masking it.
We're driven by our needs. To understand them is to not judge them. We need to begin asking ourselves, what is it that I really need? And then be okay with the vulnerable answer. I need safety. I need respect. I need compassion. I need to end this relationship. I need boundaries. I need help.
Through intimately knowing ourselves, we begin to heal and release unprocessed patterns and emotions that prevent us from living in our truth in both image and relationship.
