Acknowledge all of your emotions. Feel them in full measure. Express them fully but appropriately, with no harm done and without dwelling on them.
Suppressing and denying the reality of what some call “negative” emotions and putting on a false face to please others wraps hearts in a thread of dishonesty.
Good and bad, joyful and sorrowful, when we allow ourselves to experience all that life brings, we make life our companion and teacher.
