I have to give credit where credit is due.  I asked my sister, Emily, if there were any songs that she particularly liked that she thought I could use on my blog.  So this morning I opened my email and there was a list for me.  This song, Security by Joss Stone was one in the list.  I read the lyrics of and then listened to it, and thought, oh my gosh, this is a perfect song for the topic we are covering right now of releasing negative emotions.   So although I don’t usually share two songs related to one theme, I couldn’t pass this one up!

The song opens with this verse:

A loss that would have thrown
A hole through anybody’s soul
And you were only human after all
So don’t hold back the tears my dear
Release them so your eyes can clear
I know that you will rise again
But you gotta let them fall
I wish that I could snap my fingers
Erase the past but no
You cannot rewind reality
Once the tape’s all unrolled

And it concludes with this:

On any clock upon the wall
The time is always now
So baby kiss the past goodbye
Don’t let the future blow your mind
Just sit back and chill
Take things as they come
You can’t be afraid
To live for today
I will be with you each step of the way

Seems to me this pattern of releasing negative emotions can be found everywhere.  The encouragement not to hold back the tears, and to release them so your eyes can clear is great advice.  Life will present you with opportunities (or triggers) that can evoke pain from past events.  When these triggers come, allow them to bring you to a deeper understanding of yourself.  Don’t just hide the pain from the past, allow it to surface so you can deal with it and release it.  Click Here for more on how to do this.
