Maria Duval - controlling our emotions

Continuing from yesterday's article about emotions, Maria Duval says that mastering our emotions does not mean suppressing them. People who claim they are devoid of emotions or have conquered them are really deluding themselves because they are just suppressing them. They are in fact denying them because they are afraid of being overwhelmed by them. However, neither can we allow our emotions to drag you off course, or give them full rein so that we are totally at their mercy.

In a society where it is seen as cool to be strong and insensitive, people stifle their emotions so much that even when they do surface, they are no longer conscious of them. The first thing to learn is to be aware of our emotions by recognising their patterns, ie, the way in which they manifest themselves.
