Stomping the Roses…

…smashing out all the feelings inside…

Something I have been doing on and off the last few years is therapy. I decided this year I would be more consistent with it. This week I had a smashing therapy session. As you can see, I managed to smash quite a bit. 👨‍🔧 I’ve met with chiropractors, kiniseologists, etc and they would all say the same thing: “You hold a lot of anger and fear in your shoulders.” I was a little disconnected with myself, unaware of what I was holding in. Well, I met with my chirokinetictherapist who loosened it up a bit and I suddenly started getting major road rage and angry in general. I met with her a couple weeks later and asked her what had happened. She said the energy is ready to come out and strong ways are through shouting, physical exercise, punching bag, etc. It was time for a smashing session. I didn’t realize how much I had held in. I thought by letting it slide it would go away. I had no idea I was holding so much in and not letting go of. Boy, did I surprise myself lol. I’m keeping some of these as a souvenir. As I began I felt guilty. I thought letting myself get angry and aggressive would hurt someone. My therapist asked “did you hurt anyone in this process?” I said, “no… but maybe I sent them negative energy.” She said “your energy went into these objects. You haven’t hurt anyone. You gave your energy somewhere to go and leave you and stop holding it inside.” I still have a ways to go, but I am grateful I have begun my journey. God has made me stronger from my experiences, even in the pain, but He also sent Christ, His Son so that I don’t have to hold onto it. I can hand it over to Him and heal from what and who have hurt me; heal from things I’ve disappointed myself with and couldn’t let go of. As Tasha Cobbs says, “There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain..” And I am a recipient of that truth. “I feel the chains falling” And I’m ready for a change. Don’t be afraid to feel broken. A muscle needs to break down before it grows. Don’t be afraid of therapy. There is healing when we ask for help. Don’t be afraid to fall on your knees and cry out in prayer. God listens and comes to the broken-hearted and humbled child. #therapy #thoughts

    He expresses himself so well IMO
    so glad that he is getting therapy, dealing with the anger so he can move on….
    and that he shares about it!!! I appreciate that so much! Therapy is so helpful for anyone…we all have our “stuff” and growth can’t happen unless we can get through it!
    So glad that he is helping to ease stigma surrounding getting help
    I sincerely wish him blessings in his journey 🙏❤️

    He really does express himself so well and I applaud David for sharing his vulnerability and struggles. Takes courage and strength. Anything that can help you work through some personal issues and feelings (without taking it out on someone else) is always a good thing. Glad he found a way to release those feelings! Good for David. It’s a process of growth for all of us and I think David is very wise for his young years. I wish him all the best too. He inspires others by sharing the way he does. ❤
    Great way to "Stomp The Roses"….without really stomping the roses. I bet it felt good. ❤

    I agree with all the above comments. I’m glad he is getting the help he needs as a young adult, and sharing about it. When I was his age I thought most everyone had it together and it took me years to finally get the help I needed. Now, of course, I realize that everyone has issues and most of us could use help at some time in our lives.

    He must have picked up the roses, but I see definite bits of flower pots in there. Also, are those stones? Breaking actual rocks. Wow!
    Often we’ve had blogs or social media posts which hint in advance at songs he is writing or will write. I this this one can have innovative background music.
