Sunday Saying – Emotions
I watched this TED talk about emotions a few times after a friend posted it last night. (Thanks J!)
“We cannot selectively numb emotions. When we numb the dark emotions like vulnerability, fear, etc. — we by default numb joy. We cannot selectively just numb the dark emotions.” – Brene’ BrownI don’t care for the opening scene, but I like the rest of her talk.
Hoping I can learn from it … I need it for the next few days.
I will be rewriting/editing my memoir because my editor’s advice is to add more emotion to some of the scenes. (I agree with her, but am overwhelmed at the thought of doing it)
I’m locking myself in a motel room and trying to allow myself to feel every damn emotion I had in the past six years.
Gosh … I wonder if I’ll survive
Do you numb emotions? How?
And if you’ve learned not to numb your emotions, how did you do it?
