Showing your emotions is a sign of strength...
“Never apologise for being sensitive or emotional. It’s a sign that you have a big heart, and that you aren’t afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.” – Brigitte Nicole
Since we are focusing on understanding our emotions this week, we wanted to share a brilliant TED Talk that we found recently. It has over 5 and a half million views… So, we aren’t the only ones who think it’s worth watching!
Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analysed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research - and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.
