Our negative emotions are not a continuous state of mind to escape but rather alarms telling us to take a break and reflect.
Sadness reminds us of what matters
Anger shows us where we think there is injustice
Fear warns us that maybe we are doing the wrong thing
Guilt tells us to check how we may be breaking our own value. The trick is to distinguish when it’s a false alarm clouded by our own perception and when it’s something to act upon.
How do you use your emotions to make better decisions?
