WHAT DOES EMOTIONAL SOBRIETY LOOK LIKE

This is what emotional sobriety can look like:

  • My aim is to feel all emotions that pass through me.

  • I know all feelings are of value to me.

  • I continuously explore how to take care of what I feel in a healthy way for me and to be respectful to others. 

  • I gradually understand more of what I feel and how to express myself authentically. 

  • Feelings are expressions, not demands or questions to others. 

  • I don't let others reactions to what I feel be a hinderance for me to express myself. 

  • When I have difficulty to accepting my feelings I know what to do to support the process and the natural flow. 

  • I have ways to remind myself of that what others think and say about me is their opinion based on their emotional life. 

  • I am more and more keenly aware of my own needs.

  • I seek the truth about how to be accountable for what I need. 

  • Day by day my respect towards my own vulnerability continues to grow.

  • I know my own integrity. I know what principles are important in my life. 

  • I understand that my boundaries come from within me. They are a result of my capability to take care of myself.  

  • I am aware of the people around me that let me feel what I feel.

  • As I grow emotionally I distinguish that sometimes my feelings wreak havoc, they take over and rule every action. Those feelings have the appearance of being authentic, but they are based on old traumas that have not been seen and given their right attention.  

  • I have integrated a "higher power"/ spiritual dimension in my life. I let myself, my practice and my relation to that spiritual connection grow and evolve as life does constantly evolves.  

Remember that we are all unique. These are suggestions of how sobriety can look, always follow your own intuition. If you are confused you can ask for help.
