"Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart, don't know how to laugh either."

Golda Meir (1898-1978)

To express deepfelt, genuine emotion (good or bad) is to be REAL.

Anything else is artificial, shallow, and a waste of time, energy, and attention.

I have more respect for someone who expresses anger appropriately than I would for someone who threw a tantrum.

There is a story of a Buddhist who stands weeping because an elder has died. With sarcasm, a man asks, "An enlightened one crying about death?" The weeping man looks him in the eye and responds, "I am sad."

So many problems in life are brought about by people not dealing with their emotions, and then having them unconsciously control them. Emotions are neither good nor bad, they just are. It is what you do with them, and the choices (conscious or unconscious) that you make because of them that determines your life.
