Oohhh.... Emotions can be brutal! I have to laugh at the roller coaster of thoughts my mind can twist and spiral through in a day. A song, a conversation, a picture, a smell, certain clothes; all memories from another time that try to help me make decisions today! It's a battle to not let my emotions decide ANYTHING and yet decipher how to use that gift of feelings. Compassion for others struggling through what I've already experienced is the best way to channel those God-given powerful sensations. Use your history to help make someone else's challenges less of a mystery. Hug them, focus on them, walk with them and embrace your emotional gifts as part of what makes you strong! - Kim Hoff, Rev2Rev.com
