Discover the transformative power of understanding your feelings in our latest Life Quake segment! Join our hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and and guest Cortina Peters as they explore the fleeting nature of feelings and how to embrace them with grace and curiosity.

Embracing the Transience of Feelings

Learn to treat your emotions as house guests—acknowledge their presence, allow them to be felt, and then let them pass. By understanding that feelings do not define who we are, we can cultivate a healthier relationship with our emotional experiences.

The Pitfalls of Suppressing Emotions

Suppressing or denying our feelings can lead to increased anxiety and a sense of disconnection from ourselves. Instead of pushing emotions away, practice acceptance and curiosity. Challenge the root causes of your emotions and explore healthier coping mechanisms.

Cultivating Emotional Resilience

Build resilience by embracing a mindset of curiosity and self-awareness. When faced with challenging emotions, ask yourself what may be triggering them and how you can navigate through them with compassion and understanding. Remember, it’s okay to feel a range of emotions—it’s all part of the human experience.
