Okay this maybe isn’t THE best but it’s some of the best advice I’ve ever got. I’m someone who tends to feel something, feel it very intensely and then like a switch, I turn it off. A couple of years ago I was super fucked off, upset, angry, confused, jealous, just a whole bunch of feelings. I went on a walk with one of my friends and we were talking about something completely different when she just said “WAIT STOP RIGHT THERE” literally made me stop in the middle of the sidewalk. She said “I can tell BLAHBLAHBLAH is on your mind, and here’s what I want you to do” I looked at her as if she had just read my soul.
“From here to that lamp post I want you to just say EVERYTHING. Chat shit, even if it’s not true just say it out loud so it’s out” and you can BETCHO BOTTOM DOLLAR I tore this situation to shit. But I hit the lamp post and that was it. It was out. And because of that it couldn’t swirl around my head anymore, I couldn’t think about it anymore, I had said it to someone, it was out. All those feelings went away. Simple, but effective.
So if you feel like you can’t let go of something or someone, grab a best friend, someone you can trust, and just blurt EVERY thought in your head out. For 60 seconds just chat shit. You’ll feel a million times better , I promise you that.
