The strange thing about the spirals of our emotions is that we only realize how chronic our emotions can be when we are way down into the rabbit hole.
You see the truth always wills out. Knowing how we really feel and how to use feelings appropriately is essential to our mental health and sanity.
Feelings can be used appropriately or inappropriately. They can be based on accurate or inaccurate information. They can lead to adaptive behaviour or maladaptive behaviour.
Do you ever ask yourself honestly, am I an emotional victim? If you are depressed or anxious perhaps you should.
