Emotions. We’ve all experienced them. They come and go like waves, sometimes being calm and other times powerful enough to stir up a tsunami inside us. When feeling intense emotions, we often wish that they would go away and we could remain stoic, allowing our brain and not our heart to lead the way.
However, contrary to what we notice, our mind actually plays two roles – to think and to feel. Often, on the road to being rational, we fail to acknowledge that our emotions play a huge role in our judgments. We tend to run away from our emotions, thinking that they would go away on their own, but just like a healthy relationship, our thoughts and emotions need to work in tandem in order for peace and happiness to prevail.
Handling emotions can be tricky for sure, but at the core of the path to wellness, lies emotional well-being.
