Getting to know our emotions and understanding what they mean is the kindest thing we will ever do. It is the difference between us staying well and becoming unwell.
Although emotions can add energy and a variety of feelings which will impact our lives, those emotions can also leave us flat, when we struggle to understand what they mean. Where emotions support us, they can also turn on us, with unpredictable feelings, dragging us down into the depths of despair.
We’re either in control of our emotions or we’re controlled by them. They can help us attain great wisdom, or they can leave us confused, because we fail to understand how we feel. But our emotions also have the capacity to allow us to heal. When we learn and understand our emotions, we will stay present and well.
We must uncover our emotions at the core. Emotions can make us feel sad, they can also make us feel happy, they can make us feel anxious, or can leave us stressed. Emotions are tied to good and experiences, the past and the present.
With all emotions, it’s important we learn to identify the message behind them. If we’re anxious, we need to ask why or what we’re afraid of. If we’re angry, we need to look at why we’re angry, come to understand our anger, anything that will help us understand what our emotions mean.
The problem is we bury a lot of what we feel, either because we can’t face up to dealing with those feelings, we don’t like confrontation, or we’re in denial our feelings exist. We can’t deal with emotions when we don’t understand, therefore the key to unlocking our emotions is to understand.
