Did Mr. Spock have the right idea when it comes to handling one’s emotions? That would be staying emotionally incognito. Emotions, if he had any, were pretty well hidden. How well do you think that would work for you? You could be totally cool, as emotionally flat as a pancake.
In this episode of Audio Tidbits Podcast, I acknowledge that there are times when keeping our emotions hidden is the best approach to the particular situation. Most of the time though, that is far from the best way to relate to others, especially if our goal is to make a difference to those people who make a difference to us. A far better strategy is to keep cool but don’t freeze. Our emotions are an important element of who we are and keeping them under cover is a serious misrepresentation. Please listen and decide for yourself.
