A note on Emotions

Emotions are entirely valid and entirely irrational in the same breath. Every emotion you feel is right, none of them are wrong. Some of them are more pleasant to feel than others. You cannot approach them with logic nor can you ignore them. Think of emotions more like flags that pop up when something is to be witnessed. Getting to know yourself may be deciphering which flags mean what. Often, there is nothing to do about a particular flag presenting itself, just sit with it. Sometimes a particular flag tells you to go in a certain direction, make sure to breathe before taking actions. Emotions are parts of your experience floating to the surface and they just want to be seen and witnessed by you. Witnessing emotions is a practice, it takes time to get it right.
