Every feeling is a reminder of something important to us
We learn about what’s important to us through our feelings. We learn about what we value.
- Anger tells us that something important to us is blocked
- Fear, that something important to us is threatened
- Shame, that we haven’t been living up to something important to us
- Confusion, that we’re missing a conception of something important to us
- and so on
Feeling Through and Reconciling
[[ Feeling Through Emotions ]]
feeling → appreciating → grappling → reconciling
Some feelings may point to opposing values, and that’s when we’re called to reconcile them
Someone who’s felt through all their situations has integrity. They’re grounded. Integrity means they know what’s important to them and they’ve grappled with all the conflicts.
