Feelings Need to be Validated, Not Obeyed

Emotions are messages from our non-cognitive intelligences about the state of our world and what actions we might want to take. We need to take them seriously, but we don’t want to be ruled by them.

When we are infants, our behaviours are instinctive reactions to emotions. We do not have any information about how the world works so there is no point in slowing down to think about what is going on. 

As we mature, we learn how to relate to our emotions in a more conscious and self-directed way.

In this episode, Kate discusses how to become self-directed in our emotional intelligence learning and why we should.
