Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Most of us have a very limited vocabulary for our emotional life. Women tend to have a little better emotional vocabulary, because we have been allowed to express ourselves in this way most of our lives. However, we are somewhat limited with our ability to find our needs.
Men on the other hand, find it hard to express emotions. They have been told since they were young to get over it and be a man. Their vocabulary for needs are usually better developed. They will go after what they want.
I am writing about a cultural standard. This of course does not apply to all people.
I believe that if we are willing to dive down into our underlying, vulnerable self, and find those buried, unexpressed subconscious emotions, we will be able to live at a much more energized and happy level.
Children are able to do this naturally. Mad, sad, happy or scared they are able to express this freely. We don't need to become child like, just learn to express ourselves better.
I have been studying something called Nonviolent Communication for awhile. I have started a group to help me and others to be able to understand this way of living. Come and join us.
