#2: Feeling the Rainbow of Emotions
Play • 47 min

Most of us were taught that there were “good” emotions and “bad” emotions. Some were sanctioned and some were not. And so we walk around thinking that if we feel the “bad” emotions, we are weak or crazy. And so, as we move through life, most of us are chasing happiness but unwilling to feel the discomfort of grief, sadness, loneliness, shame or guilt. But as Brene Brown says, “When we numb the dark, we numb the light.” In order to feel fully alive, we have to give ourselves permission to feel it all. In this episode, Mary walks you through 5 ways to stretch yourself as you relate to your emotions so that you can begin feeling the full rainbow. When we let ourselves be fully human all of life opens up. Because the truth is, we feel all day everyday, and once we learn how to name our emotions and create space for them without judgement we can receive the gift they each individually offer.
