Tough emotions are essential for living

How we deal with our emotions affects how we love, how we live, how we parent and how we lead.

We should not view our emotions as good or bad, positive or negative. We need our emotions for real resilience.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

When we go through tough situations, we cannot ignore our negative emotions with the hope that they don't matter.

When you feel a strong, tough emotion, don’t run away from it. Understand why you have this emotion and be open to it.

Emotions are not directives. We can label our emotions for their values without listening to them.

Don't consider what you think you should feel. Open your heart to what you do feel, even the difficult emotions. It could involve pain, regret, grief or loss. 

We are caught up in a rigid culture that values positivity.
