If you want to understand your emotions, the first thing you will have to do is to be aware of them.
Awareness is for some of us a big thing. We tend to ignore things and feelings as the world is speeding up every day. We are being somewhat bombarded with attention grabbing images, signs, words etc. when we are out on the street, at work or surfing on the Internet. We develop a filtering system in order to “digest” all the information. We only take in what we are interested in or can relate to.
In my personal view, the same thing can happen with our emotions. They are being triggered by what we experience in different situations and due to the speed of the modern world has nowadays, it is hard to really take considerable note of our emotions.
It is easier to ignore them. Right?
