Using Our Emotions As Information

March 26, 2021


Has anyone every told you, “you’re too sensitive?” Or, “you’re just too emotional.” Or, “you should learn to take the emotion out of things.”

Yeah, me too. And I had this epiphany about the difference between taking the emotion out of things versus taking things personally. Those two things are not the same. And I am here to say that I think it’s time we put our emotions back into everything we do. Emotions are not bad things. They can be our information, our guides. Just because society says emotions make others uncomfortable or complicate things doesn’t mean we don’t get to have them and express them liberally. 

So, here’s my two cents. (Although I think this one is really more worth like $1.50…)

I love you, I hope you have a wonderful day. XOXO, CAMDW

What is Positive Discomfort and How Can We Use It?

I feel like I’ve heard the saying, “get comfortable with being uncomfortable” over and over. In some instances, yes, I feel like it’s true, but I think it is way more nuanced than that. Discomfort can be telling us so many things. It can show us that maybe we need to be taking better care […]
