We may think that if we acknowledge our pain or fear, these emotions will overwhelm us. Working too hard to contain these feelings, however, can also overburden us. We all have our methods of dealing with heavy emotions, and we deserve the privilege of taking our own journeys toward resolution. Some find comfort in sharing and dialoguing while others discover ease through exercise or working on a project. One seeks solitude while another looks for excitement. Acknowledging our feelings is the key. “A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance” (Ecclesiates 3:4).
