But instead of feeling the dark storm approaching and dropping down the emotional shutters, what about instead of preparing to ‘weather the storm’ you ask ‘whether the storm’ is worth it.⁠

Oh, the emotional storms of the soul. They make me wonder and then make tired and then make me laugh.⁠

But instead of feeling the dark storm approaching and dropping down the emotional shutters, what about instead of preparing to ‘weather the storm’ you ask ‘whether the storm’ is worth it.⁠
.⁠
Often just asking the question makes you realise, that no, in fact this would be the biggest waste of storm energy⁠
and you can instead release the tension another way.⁠

But sometimes, when you check in with yourself and ask “Whether this storm will break for me?”, it’s also so damn lovely to exhale “Yes” and then surrender to the cleansing rain that follows. ⁠
.⁠
The thing to remember is you always have the choice to interrogate the validity of your emotional channels.⁠
