HONOURING YOUR EMOTIONS - Why It Matters
by Johanna Vanderpol
What if we thought that emotions were a good thing and stopped apologizing for them?
What if we allowed ourselves to have them without a warring internal dialogue saying things like, “You shouldn’t feel that way.” “You are over-reacting.” What if when you were sad, you cried and discovered that the wave of sadness was complete and was no more? What if you were allowed, in the work climate, to express your feelings and they led to a better solution to a work challenge? What if you found a way to manage and express emotions in a way that was respectful of self and others?
That is what this book is about. It will show you the true value of emotion, free you from having to deny them anymore, and start using them in the ways they were meant to be used.
