If only emotions could be caged. Emotions are essential to one's ability to be aware of self. They are tools to inform us of our own nature, of danger, of things that need to be changed, of attraction to find the right companions for our individual needs and desires. Essential! But emotions inhibit us, too. Fear keeps us from expressing ideas that need communication. Anger becomes a source of discomfort. Anxiety fixates us on the problem and inhibits creative thinking. Sadness casts a gloom over our days. Separating reality from fictionalized, emotionally charged situations is a challenging skill to develop.
