The phrase “in your feelings” is often used to describe the overwhelming feeling that something is bothering you and you can’t let it go. Some things are easy to brush off while others require some type of action that will help you move on with your life. There’s nothing wrong with being “in your feelings.” You are human and allowed to feel whatever whenever you like. However, being “in your feelings” is like swimming in quick sand. While the sinking feeling may feel like something you can swim through, you are surely sinking to a place of suffocation.
Here are 10 steps to getting OUT of your feelings:
Step 1 – Ask yourself “Why am I in my feelings.”
Step 2 – Evaluate if being in your feelings is productive.
Step 3 – Evaluate how productive you want/should be.
Step 4 – If being “in your feelings” is affecting where you want/should be take a moment to recognize that.
Step 5– Sit in your feelings for no more than 7 minutes.
Step– 6 do 10 jumping jacks in your feelings while repeating “I am in my feelings.”
Step 7– Get water and repeat one last time “whew, I am in my feelings!”
Step 8– Evaluate how productive the jumping jacks were.
Step 9– If you’re life has not been made better in the hour that it took you to do steps 1 – 9 repeat “let it go [add your name] 10 times.
Step 10– Continue the rest of your day and if the urge to get back in your feelings happens do jumping jacks or simple repeat to yourself “let it go [add name].
If these steps don’t work there is no hope for you and you should just sit in your feelings then repeat “let it go [add name]” all day till you get over it.
