Why all emotions are equal
Do “good” and “bad” emotions exist? Emotions are energy, intense moments of release of tension. Emotions can serve as red flags (fear), can lift you up (joy, ecstasy), make you feel small (sadness). What do they all have in common? They make you feel alive. Emotions all come from the same source but serve different purposes.
To make a distinction in the good and the bad and the ugly is a mistake many make. This is why.
