Do you suppress your emotions, then feel bad about yourself BECAUSE you have these normal emotions?
The reality is that our emotions are our body’s way of giving us important information. As noted author of The Language of Emotions, Karla McLaren, explains, “Emotions are millions of years older than spoken language, and simply put, they’re smarter than words, they’re deeper than any technique, and they can help you in ways you cannot imagine.”
