Two different interpretations of your emotions:
1. Emotions are just something that happens. They sweep in, and sweep out again. There to be felt, but not to be obsessed over, worried over, analysed. Emotions simply are.
2. Emotions are of the deepest significance. They show you what you care about. They’re the surest route to understanding what matters to you. Far from being an interruption to reason they are a form of intelligent, meaning-laden reasoning, and the heart of what it is to be human.
So often we’re blinded by the particular interpretation of emotions that we cling to.
So perhaps if you find yourself obsessed with what you’re feeling, you might try out living in interpretation 1 for a while.
And if you treat your emotions as a nuisance, a distraction, and better left alone, how about a while treating interpretation 2 as if it’s true?
