As a child you learned about feelings. You learned that when you are happy you smile, and when you are sad you cry. However, feelings are much more complex than that. Many people discount their feelings and do not pay very much attention to them. This can actually make your life more difficult. Instead, if you want to be happy, you need to learn to listen to your feelings.
In our society it is not widely accepted to outwardly display your feelings. This is especially true in the work force, and it can also be true in relationships. Yet, if you simply try to suppress all of the emotions that you are feeling you may find yourself feeling empty and lost.
You can learn how to listen to your feelings, and you also need to learn how to handle them. No one wants to be a cry baby. If you feel like crying there is a reason for that and you need to deal with that.
The first thing that you need to do is to recognize your feelings. Develop your sensitivity so that you are able to recognize even the faintest feeling. This will help you to become more perceptive. This can help you to take better care of yourself, and it can also help you to take better care of those around you.
Additionally, you need to learn how to put your feelings into perspective. When feelings first emerge they can be very strong, and you may find yourself wanting to instinctually react. However, instinctual reactions do not typically provide happy results.
What you want to do is pay attention to your feelings, and remind yourself that they are just feelings, and you have control of them. Knowing this will help you to keep control of your behavior so that you can use your feelings in a way that will help you to attain a happy outcome that you have control of.
Your feelings can also help you to evaluate your own actions as you are making your way through certain scenarios. If you are taking actions that do not sit right in your soul you should pay attention to that. Generally, this is a warning from a higher power that you have made a misstep.
If you find that you are generally happy with the steps that you are taking you can trust that you are headed down a good path. Embrace that happiness and continue on the journey that you have started.
In life you are always looking for signs and signals that you are doing the right thing to make a happy life for yourself. Your feelings can be that insight into your life path, and you need to learn to pay attention to them. By doing this you will set the stage for yourself to continue to evolve until you manage to reach your own happy divine potential. Remember to listen to your feelings.
