The Buzzkill (How To Deal With Positive Emotions)

In the past, Teal has spoken a lot about the invalidation of negative emotions and about how to deal with emotions in general because people tend to struggle the most with negative emotions. And societally speaking, most societies deem positive emotion acceptable and negative emotion unacceptable. However, our resistance to emotion as a species is not limited to negative emotions. Often, we disapprove of, dismiss, disregard, invalidate, trivialize and suppress positive emotions in ourselves and in other people as well. In this episode, Teal explains how this works, the long terms effects of it and teaches us how to avoid doing this to one another.
