Daily Inspiration ~ May 11th

~

Usually people lose themselves in a strong emotion and become overwhelmed. That is not the way to handle emotion, because when that happens you are a victim of emotion.

In order not to become a victim, breathe and retain your calm, and you will experience the insight that an emotion is only an emotion, nothing more.

This insight is very important, because then you are no longer afraid. You are calm, you are not trying to run away, and you can deal better with emotion.

      Yes, I quite agree, we often focus only on our weaknesses, without realizing that our strengths overcome all fear when we believe in ourselves. Thank you for your comment and I hope you keep reading. Peace and Love to you. Wendy
