There is this new thing.. well, maybe it's not new, maybe I wasn't paying attention to it before... but I hear some teachers/coaches say things like "you are not your emotions" .
I don't understand this because I do strongly identify myself with my emotions and feelings. If I dig deeper, that's what basically makes me a human and not a robot. Robot-human is like a cold machine. Voided of emotion. Heartless. There is good movie about it "Equilibrium" where they show society being so obsessed with self-control that they created a pill to numb feelings and emotions.
In a way, I see the links such as shitty emotions 6 out 7 days on a row = shitty personality , good emotions or at least mostly good 6 out of 7 days on a row = decent personality, maybe even a very happy person. You know how they say "happiness is work". A very hard mental work for starters.
I know my example is very generalized, so please don't take it personally, nor I am not intended to hurt anyone reading. I do believe there are people who truly need help, so it's all just something to think about it.
Ana, what do you think?
A clean mind is like home, it doesn't have that much space for dirt and rottening thoughts that cause all kinds of uncontrolled mood problems that continuously harm people around. The longer one does something like this, the more the heart is going to shut down or turns very cold. I hope I'm wrong though.....
