Coping Strategies 

Emotion has a way of bubbling up to the surface. It takes over and pushes everything else to the side. Out here on my own there are only a few outlets to let go of the emotions and expressing them here is one of them. Expressing them so that they are preserved for the future. It is an awakening that has been in the making for a while. 

Out here as the walls that house me bear a silent witness to the process of dealing with these issues that crop up an echo reverberates. It is a silent echo that that is felt more than heard. No one sees me but one can’t hide from oneself. If anything it’s a way of facing these things head on. What else am I going to do?

This emotion that bubbles up pops eventually and the gasses it contains eventually spread and dissipate into the environment. Their power diluted by the swirl of other wind currents that flow like a jet stream circulating the atmosphere. These currents bring the rain and clouds but they also clear all of this away and we get blue sunny skies. 

If I intelectualize this or if I project this emotion or transmute this energy it lessens its power. It also allows me to move forward with a new approach. It allows for a positive outcome. The range of human emotion is wide. From the deapths of deep despair and depression to the highest high and happiness. All of these can be embraced and all of them are useful in different times. We have evolved to experience them all. By being conscious of this one can mitigate their impact. I like to exist just above the positive emotional border so that the swings are kept in check. 

Solutions are always found and there is always something that can be done to mitigate problems. Moods are sinusoidal and as such they can be ridden like waves towards a destination. These emotions as well as the problems that come along can be overcome. If there is anything I’ve learned in life it is that I possess some kind of resilience to what life throws my way. Because of this there is a quiet confidence that shines illuminating my way.
