    Understanding Emotions/ Understanding Your Self

    We're just as much feeling beings as we are thinking. Emotions and feelings are just as important a part of our being as logic and reasoning. The fact that we do not understand our emotions as well as we do our thoughts does not mean that we should dismiss them. You're not meant...

    I feel so full of emotions all the time.

    They range and rage on and sometimes I'm not sure how I feel about most anything. I feel like I'm constantly thinking and feeling, so much so that it's hard for me to meditate. All of my emotions no matter what they are are always so intense.. I feel like I have so many feelings...

    Relationships

    I see emotions as a powerful thing because well, then we wouldn't have the friends. That's what it is mainly based on right? I wouldn't stick around with my best friend if our friend ship wasn't bonded. I wouldn't be the friends with the people I became friends with if we didn't...

    Non Denial

    You cannot deny your emotions and remain human. Just how the monsters of Nazi Germany were able to suspend their emotions and their consciences for so long is. Feat, probably a trait unique to Germans with their mechanical social skills. Emotions are a means by which inner...

    They Can Hurt Or They Can Heal

    At the end of the day what do we all want? For me it's quite simple - to love and be loved in return. To know my basic needs of food and shelter will always be met. To have a few people on my side and me on theirs. To show who I am and see who you are, without fear of rejection...

    Emotions are a gift too.

    When I listen to certain music, I can feel heaven. When I am in love, I can feel heaven. When I look into my baby's eyes, I can feel heaven. I experience, fully. And I can create. I can make emotion. And it is beyond you. You without emotion, you miss out.

    Keeping In Mind

    Emotions are indicators. Defining one's self by what one feels is silly. They're signals that let us know when we're staying true to our best interests or compromising ourselves somehow. They help us navigate and get what we want, like a compass. When what we want changes, we can...
