Don’t Over Complicate Things
We can have feelings about thoughts, feelings about emotions and feelings about feelings. It sounds complicated but does not have to be.
But Doesn’t Analyzing Our Feelings Provide Better Self-Understanding?
Yes, however to analyze everything you feel is stressful and time consuming. Sometimes our bodies need us to relax and surrender without stories, judgment and analysis. Sometimes the body needs us to just be without complexities.
