A solid basis for emotional well-being
“Just notice them and be curious,” my friend said as the glow of sunset told us we’d been sitting in this Parisian cafe much longer than anticipated. But the engaging conversation had kept us there. We’d been talking for hours about spirituality and mental health.
Her comment referred to emotions. We’d been realizing how we had learned to label certain emotions as good or bad, positive or negative. And this shaped and limited our ability to be honest with ourselves and others by suppressing certain emotions and highlighting others. And yet, as has become increasingly evident in society today, suppressed emotions tend to come out in other ways, often affecting our health and well-being.
