Identifying and releasing negative feelings

I get super confused about emotions. My big challenge in the morning is sluggishness and … negativity. I’m irritable about my freaking phone cover. It sucks. Ummm I want help cleaning the house. It’s a lot of work. I’m disappointed with myself. There’s one! Self criticism. I think it’s one big knot.

And I’m confused about releasing and ruminating. Is it the recognition and exploring that’s helpful? Because the feelings are like always there and id rather just get rid of them.

@shermananski My housework is staring me in the face today and I don't have the energy to tackle it today , tomorrow is another day but my schedule is full tomorrow no time then so bmad at myself 😴

You are right, @shermananski, self-criticism can drain you physically and emotionally.

What can you say to yourself when the self-criticism starts?
