Emotions and feelings are tied up with thought structures and belief systems which mould an inner working model in the individual. This is created by the care givers of the individual from infancy in the form of scripts, introjects and such like. Emotions matter. Understanding your emotions will help you understand your behaviour better, and impact on your practice of effective self-care. Love transcends all.
