Feelings are one of the most important things in life. They help us to make the judgment by being the communicator between the conscience, empathy and logical thinking.
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 😊

Yes! Unacknowledged feelings will always and eventually bubble to the surface, and repressed feelings may become twisted and crooked and unrecognizable. Best to make peace with them as they arise. ❤️

Thank you Carrie Birde for a very insightful comment! I agree with you it’s the best to face the feelings without trying to cover them up. It can create the awaiting explosion of unspoken fears.
