On Air with Ella - podcast episode 266
WE ARE EMOTIONAL BEINGS. BUT WE ARE NOT OUR EMOTIONS.
Are your emotions defining who you are? Is fear limiting your ability to live your fullest life? Your emotions are important, but they are not your identity.
Social Psychologist Dr. Kinga Mnich says that emotional alignment means learning to understand that emotions are guidelines for interacting with others and how we want others to interact with us. It is an internal compass of who we want to be, how we want to be understood, and how we impact the world. It is not a determination of how good of a person we are.
It is not possible to be unemotional - emotions are part of your human experience. But you are not your emotions. - Dr. Kinga Mnich
