Fully understanding your emotions and living a happy life!

Despite widespread belief, there is no danger in letting ourselves be guided by our emotions. On the contrary, to make choices that take into account our whole being, it's better to rely on what we feel, although it's still important to fully understand the messages relayed by our emotions. Author and psychologist Michelle Larivey has done an enormous amount of work in classifying and understanding what emotions do. For example, anxiety can tell us about a lack of preparation or a tendency to aim for the impossible. Restlessness is a sign that we are staving off a concern that is trying to come to the surface. Anger indicates dissatisfaction about something, while the role of fear or desire is to anticipate the future, etc. This book, with its complete inventory of emotions as well as anecdotes from daily life, makes it possible for everyone to gain insight into their various emotional experiences: defining them, analyzing them, understanding their role and, in particular, learning how to manage them. It's a genuine emotional goldmine.
