What, ALL my emotions matter? I thought I was suppose to cover those ugly ones up, pretend they don't exist, don't let them out, hold them in, then burst.
Let's look at this view point.
Emotions are your personal self giving information. Your emotional scale. Indicator of which direction are you going...
One of two ways...
Feeling good with no resistance or not feeling good with resistance going on.
The most important thing for you is to be aware of "where your at" and then ask yourself does the "thought" I am thinking give me an increment of relief bringing me closer to feeling good. Note: Feeling good is ALL anyone really ever wants. We do all sorts of things to make ourselves better.
Interesting note here: every fiber of your being desires to feel love. When your not feeling good ( lower end scale emotion ) that is an indicator that your well being is out of sync with how you were created to be. True self empowerment occurs with the alignment of the good feeling - well being connection.
Right here we need to pause and tell you to stop beating yourself up on how your feeling. It is also not up to anyone else to decide what is good for you. Example: If someone was in depression and then moved up out of depression and was just angry, does that feel like a step up instead of a step down? Step up! For someone who was in depression for them to make a huge leap to happy immediately, doesn't that seem like a overwhelming task? I hope your feeling where I am going with this.
All emotions matter, some are a step up or step down to what you are desiring. Take the sting and condemnation out that they are bad or wrong. They are your personal message to guide you onto a new path.
Tip: Deliberately reach for a particular thought that brings a better feeling than the one your thinking. This technique practiced repeatedly will regain your power. That will turn into a habit.
