In the 70’s I was into the psychotherapies that had to do with expressing and getting out the negative emotions from current situations and earlier in the lifetime.
It was a SHOCK when I heard that we choose our emotions. I quickly got that we choose our emotions most often as a toddler in reaction to our relationships with parents and family. It was with interest that I learned we/especially I could learn to respond differently.
We can choose to be miserable that we have a less than noble president and we can choose to act more nobly ourselves and spread harmony in our community.
I could choose to be sad that my daughter wants more independence. Or I can choose to explore options of more freedom for myself than I’ve had in 43 years.
For wanting to live a life of longevity—choosing peace, joy, harmony, contentment, and self-love are great choices.
Encouraging you to choose a lifestyle that brings more and more positive friends and emotions into your life in 2020.
