“We numb vulnerability. We are the most in debt, obese, addicted and over medicated adult cohort in US history. The problem is that we cannot selectively numb emotion.” Brene Brown
In this episode, I share my thoughts on why numbing emotions isn’t ideal. It has been inspired by a TED Talk I heard recently by Brene Brown. I wrote a short article about it here.
The thought is that by numbing our emotions we numb all emotions even the good ones like happiness. This can place us in a vicious cycle that is certainly no benefit for living this experience as fully as possible.
I share ideas as to how we can avoid numbing emotions. Strategies that have worked for me and in doing so found a greater balance with my emotions, greater control over them and more joy in life.
