Day 1917: Cathartic

Let’s start with a cathartic definition:

ca·thar·tic
kəˈTHärdik
adjective
1. providing psychological relief through the open expression of strong emotions; causing catharsis.
“crying is a cathartic release”

As a psychotherapist who endorses providing psychological relief,  I agree that crying and the open expression of strong emotions is cathartic.

Here are other things I find cathartic:

  • Writing this daily blog,
  • Finishing my taxes.
  • Important relationships.
  • Laughter.
  • Owning my personal power.
  • Physical exercise.
  • Self care.
  • Nature.
  • Animals.
  • Holidays.
  • Spring.
  • Water.
  • Hope.
  • Life, in general.
  • Life, specifics (see all previous blog posts for specifics).
  • Letting go of fear and worry.
  • Memories.
  • Moving on.
  • Being in the moment.

What is cathartic for you?

Are any of my recent photos cathartic?

Following your own path is cathartic and so is music (here and here).

Receiving and responding to feedback is cathartic, as is expressing thanks to all who helped me create this cathartic blog post and — of course! —  YOU.
