Our emotions and feelings have incredible power over our lives.
Every single decision we make from moment to moment is based on how we want to feel.
We are either trying to make ourselves feel good, or stop ourselves feeling bad.
Think about it – why do we want to lose weight, get fit, make more money, find a partner, go on holiday, get a new job etc?
It’s either to get rid of unpleasant feelings such as fear, inadequacy, insecurity, or loneliness. Or, it’s to feel pleasant feelings such as happiness, excitement, joy, self-worth, or satisfaction.
It is a natural human response to move towards pleasure and away from pain – that’s what our brain has evolved to do.
The problem is – if you aren’t aware of your own emotions or you struggle to manage them – you will be at the complete mercy of your emotional brain.
And this is not a good place to be.
Difficulty understanding and managing emotions and lack of awareness of emotional needs is at the heart of:
- Relationship conflict
- low self-confidence
- all addictive behaviours
- eating issues
Emotional intelligence develops in early childhood in response to stable, nurturing family environments that encourage emotional expression.
A large amount of research now shows that if we were raised in an abusive, neglectful, or stressful environment, we often don’t develop the emotional skills or necessary brain wiring required to respond to our emotions effectively.
