As a Life Coach I know how important thinking is, but I also know the importance of our feelings and emotions. I would say they are even more important than thinking. Why is this? Basically, our feelings are an important feedback system our body is providing us.
We human beings like to hide as much as possible of our true nature. We try to hide our feelings, our emotions. Our sexuality. What our true intentions are. Our age. How much money we make. What our political opinion or world view is, if it is not in line with that of the majority. I can go on for hours with this list. The truth is that we like to give away as little as possible of our true, authentic self. Afraid that other people find out who truly we are.
