Why You Should Pay Attention to Your Feelings

By: Kristin Martineau | March 15, 2018

Most people still operate in emotional childhood.

We think that our circumstances or other people cause us to feel a certain way.

We’ve been taught that emotions are weakness.

That we should ignore them and “man up.”

Being referred to as “emotional” isn’t a compliment.

So we have learned to resist or ignore our emotions, so that we can appear in control.

This is a problem.

When you ignore what you are feeling, you are missing out on a great opportunity to get to know yourself.

Your emotions are a clue.

If you are paying attention, you can use them to figure out what you are thinking.

This is important information because what you think and feel determines the way you behave.

Sometimes we don’t like the way we are behaving but we aren’t sure how to stop.

Why can’t I stop yelling at my kids?

Why can’t I stop eating M&Ms every night?

Why can’t I stop being resentful toward my husband?

This is the work I do with my clients. I help them see their own minds clearly. Then they are so much more empowered to make a change if they want to. Come to a free mini session with me and I can help you gain some clarity on any issue you are struggling with.
