Numbing emotions

“We cannot selectively numb emotions, when we numb the painful emotions, we also numb the positive emotions.” ~Brené Brown

It’s so tempting to try to numb those emotions we don’t enjoy, but that numbing doesn’t make them go away. It just numbs all of the positive emotions along with it.

How much better it is to learn to feel them all and learn from them what we can!
