Repression/emotional blocking

Repressing an emotion means you know it’s happening but you don’t want to or don’t know how to express that emotion and you don’t experience it. In a way, emotional blocking means not understanding your emotion .

You repress your feelings because you think you shouldn’t be feeling them. This confusion makes you lose emotional freedom.

Emotional denial

When you deny your emotions and pretend they don't exist, it makes your emotions grow stronger. They can harm you and you might not realize it.

Lack of emotional control

When you get really bad thoughts in your head and feel sad or worried you can act up and start making bad decisions . Emotions can get the best of you and make you lose control. Lack of emotional control can have bad consequences.

Emotional depersonalization

This defense mechanism stops you from connecting emotionally to someone or something, like a tear in your emotional cycle avoiding what’s hurt you in the past and stop you from enjoying life.

We need to understand how destructive emotions affect us and constructive emotions can help us, so that we can mantain our peace of mind.

Conflictive emotions

An emotional conflict leads you to a roadblock . These conflicts can be hard to identify because they’re not visible, but they can be felt.

Life’s not black and white. Emotions aren’t black and white. If you think you can’t experience more than one emotion at once, you should know that you can. You can even mix emotions!

Emotional dependency

Sometimes is difficult to let go, to not be stuck in a past feeling . Even more, this comes to an unsolved trauma or an emotion that wasn’t processed properly.

Mindfulness meditation can be beneficial if you’re trying to disconnect from the past .

Searching for pleasure

The issue here is not tolerating frustration. More so, if someone hasn’t experienced unpleasant emotions, they’re on a quest for pleasant emotions.

“If you are doing mindfulness meditation, you are doing it with your ability to attend to the moment.”

-Daniel Goleman-

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
