Dating Your Childhood Emotions

We all know what it feels like to start dating, it takes us into a world where we are unsure and our insecurities and vulnerabilities are on high alert. It may even take us back to when we were teenagers and writing notes, “Do you like me? Yes or No?

When you express your childhood emotions and give them a voice, you’ll be moving “through” insecurities. You know those childhood emotions, the ones that were hidden because you couldn’t process what you experienced at that level of immaturity. You still carry those unfelt and unmet emotions as an adult, and act accordingly, in this immaturity.

Immaturity has nothing to do with chronological age, it has to do with the level that you could process or handle things. You are immature on many levels, and one of these levels is dating. It brings out many childhood emotions that were never handled. You will feel like you’re dating your emotions, which can be very hazardous to your adult well-being.

Understanding helps your position so that now you can see what is happening within you, and now you have a plan for meeting those unfelt emotions. You meet them, again and again, and again and move through your insecurities. You don’t move “through” without them being present because then you’re back to square one.

Suppression is the unexpressable, expression is the expressable.
