I enjoyed reading/listening about anger, sadness and fear - showed me what it means when I feel that way and helped me discover what I should be looking for that set that off.
I feel more comfortable with myself and more optimistic, busy and sharp. I still find expressing attraction and initiating eye contact (in clubs) difficult although my confidence when dancing is higher than in years. Anger, happiness and disgust were all especially helpful. I think anger was the most useful though as my misuse of it has been a root cause of problems and has distorted some of my other emotions.
My favorite topic was specifically using disgust to show what you are passionate about. I really don't feel passionate about much but when I questioned what I feel disgust about it was easy to think of what disgusts me and there for an area I was passionate. I generally am feeling more curious about any emotions I feel. I am looking to wring out whatever info is in the emotion and develop more. There were a few reframes around disgust and even happiness that change what I can learn and practically use with them. Something from this course I would like to remember is that emotions are tools and "surfing" them successfully will benefit my development.
I avoided anger like the plague for most of my life because I thought it was “bad” and only people not composed feel that. In this course I learned that all the “bad” emotions are in fact helpful (or can be used helpfully), and I used anger to get a better workout.
Your ability to manage your emotions is what will determine the quality of your life. Unfortunately, most of us have been trained to misunderstand and become ashamed of our normal natural human feelings.

In this course you'll come to understand your inner sensations, and learn to make use of your emotions the way they were intended.
