The benefits of negative emotions


Negative emotions, with their benefits, allow us to grow and become more complete people. Clyde DeSouza says that,¬†when the mind manages to free itself from the contamination of emotions, logic and clarity emerge surprisingly. This means that we can find good in almost everything we are and that surrounds us, even in the aspects that we consider negative.

Self-mastery and motivation in emotional intelligence


Self-mastery, although it must be understood primarily as self-control, therefore as a capacity to dominate emotions, does not imply the suppression, suffocation or negation of the same. From this point of view if all emotions are allowed, not all can be expressed.

In this sense, being endowed with emotional intelligence means being able to manage one’s…

Self-awareness helps to control our emotions


Self-awareness helps to control our emotions. In fact, when you are aware that something is wrong, you are already solving the problem and you have already eliminated many doubts about the actions to be taken. From a scientific point of view, self-awareness works because it activates the neurocortex, or our thinking brain. That part of us that analyzes things for what they are and judges them rationally. Precisely for this reason, self-awareness also increases confidence. The main characteristic of self-awareness is the ability not to take oneself seriously. To laugh…

We live in fear of losing what we believe to be ours


We live in fear of losing what we believe to be ours, believing we can avoid pain; we do not want to reopen old wounds. And we have the illusion of being able to escape suffering, but the only thing we get is to escape from ourselves. The mind corrupts love, thinking of what love involves transforms it into a problem. We need to give it an intellectual meaning. Finding what you love goes far beyond what we can understand by making use of reason. Our thoughts have the task…

Good people are not weak or naive


Good people are not weak or naive. They simply understand the language of respect and affection, imbued with humility and altruism. Perhaps for this reason they sometimes feel out of place in a world full of selfishness and fugacity, of emotions that do not last, and of promises that are broken day by day. Good people are much more than what they give to see. They fight battles that only they know, silence unspoken words and hide the bitterness behind a gentle smile, because they do not want to look…
