Emotional Jenga Towers

Have you ever met someone who gets angry at the drop of a hat? Or do you know a person who always feels guilty? Or have a friend who is always so, so, so hurt by everything (seemingly unreasonably so)? Maybe you can think of people you know. Or maybe you can apply these scenarios to yourself.

Let me explain why.

As we go through life, we accumulate experiences. The good ones don’t bother us; they’re fun, happy, and exciting. But the bad ones? They trigger significant negative emotions—like anger, sadness, hurt, guilt, or betrayal—and when those emotions remain unresolved, they accumulate in our body and mind…and cause big problems.

Now think about each one of those emotions as if it’s a wooden block in the game of Jenga. Each time we experience a particular negative emotion and don’t deal with it, it gets stacked on its emotional tower. We might have an “anger tower” and a “shame tower,” for example. Over time, as we accumulate new experiences, the tower(s) become unstable and unpredictable and interfere with our ability to cope, maintain relationships, achieve our goals, and more.

Does this sound like you? Do you feel like you’re at your wit’s end with unwanted behavior(s) but don’t know what to do? 

Here’s a great step toward knocking down your emotional Jenga towers: connect with your intuition. Your intuition has guidance for you, and it’s there to support you even amidst heightened negative emotions. The best part is, it’s always with you. All you have to do is learn how to hear and trust what it has to say.
