Some say, “Life would be much simpler if we didn’t have to deal with emotions.” Yes it might be simpler, but would that be better? Likely not. Take the clock metaphor: Without an energy source, the clock would not “tell time.” It would be motionless. Well, you would be “motionless” without emotions to give you information and energy. Getting rid of emotions is not the ticket; learning to manage them successful, is. You can experience each emotion and receive the information it provides without emoting (e.g., giving expression to it or taking any action). Sometimes just observing and learning in any given moment is what needs to happen. Then when you next experience a similar situation, you are better able to deal with it effectively.
