What have we gained by labelling certain emotions as good or bad?
Or, perhaps more importantly, what have we lost by this act?
None of our emotions are either good nor bad, they are all important signals.
Signals of pleasure and joy, signals to pause, signals to re-assess and change, signals of satisfaction, signals to move away, signals of what is okay and what is not.
If we were lost at sea, in the dark, we'd never condemn a lighthouse's guidance.
We'd rejoice. We'd pay heed to it. Seek it out.
Once safe, we'd change direction. Try again. Try anew.
Knowing we'd always be able to find a safe harbour if we just follow the guiding light.
What's the story you’re telling yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
Remember though, with whatever you read online, take what you like and leave the rest because it's your life and, therefore, your choice of how to live it.
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - make kind choices and stay flawsome! Don’t forget, you’re fucking brilliant!
