“I became so angry, I hit my fist through a glass window”
‘’I said something to my husband or child that really hurt them, I wish I didn’t’’
“I cry for the smallest thing; I don’t understand why.”
‘’I have a constant knot on the pit of my stomach.’’
“I struggle to sleep at night.’’
‘’I hurt myself, I scratch my arms till they bleed’’
‘’I hide away in my room; it is easier to be on my own.’’
‘’I only feel better after a glass of wine.’’
‘’I make sure I always keep busy, when I sit down the thinking and sadness starts.’’
‘’My husband doesn’t understand what I am trying to communicate to him.’’
‘’My wife never listens.’’
Do these statements sound familiar?
I am sure you can add a few more.
All the statements above have some emotion behind it.
Can you guess which emotion goes with which statement?
What is the emotion trying to achieve, what is it trying to bring into awareness, how is it trying to get your attention?
Learning to understand ‘’the language of our emotions’’ is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your loved ones. It makes life so much easier.
It is the first step in the process of being able to identify and communicate your needs.
It will help you identify your loved ones’ needs.
Ultimately it will result in great, fulfilling relationships with the people around you.
Join us for an interactive workshop on “the language of our emotions”.
