Greeting negative , neutral and positive feelings with open arms allows us to analyse various life situations more objectively making us successful. Many of us try to mute or disregard feelings by following the rational thinking pattern in order to protect ourselves. I could compare it to eating the same type of food for lunch everyday and rejecting any other meal because even though it’s not satisfying enough it’s still filling – I can easily name it ‘a safe option’.
What if we venture out and actually try something unexpectedly different. Would it make us happier or more miserable? We won’t know unless we try! I do believe the key to happiness is a healthy balance made of miscellaneous ingredients which stimulate our existence. Think about it 😊
