Understanding and Embracing All of Our Emotions

For many of us, it’s much easier to recognize and name our “pleasant” emotions.  We have a tendency to suppress, deny or reject the “unpleasant" emotions, such as anger, guilt, shame, loneliness, anxiety, or fear. We also judge ourselves for feeling these “negative” emotions.  But as research tells us, ignoring these feelings won’t make them go away, and doing so might actually be detrimental to our mental and physical health and our relationships. Understanding the range of emotions is essential to developing emotional insight, so this week we are encouraging you to make physical space inside your home to help with this process.


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
