“Expressing Emotion Safely” – Episode #37 of Co-creating Peace
A podcast series about conscious communication and conflict transformation.
We all struggle from time to time with how to express our emotions. We often either react to our feelings without thought, causing others to get upset, or we avoid talking about them altogether in an effort to prevent high emotions and conflict, which – in the long run – can cause us to accumulate a lot of unpacked emotional baggage. In this episode, I discuss some other options that are more helpful to us and to our interpersonal dynamics with others, and share some advice to a listener who asked about this.
