What are you feeling? Or should I say what are you REALLY feeling?

We all want to present ourselves as positive, up-beat and inspiring. It’s the culturally and socially desirable ‘norm’. But to truly live a happy life requires embracing the hidden and less desirable emotions in ourselves and others.

What happens when you bring fear, anger, anxiety and need out of the closet? How do you act or react when these emotions threaten to take over? What happens when you recognise them in others? Most people either react or avoid them. Sometimes they are stifled to the point that they are hardly even recognised.

This topic is inspired by a conversation between Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth on the ‘No Stupid Questions’ podcast that I was listening to on a recent road trip. In the episode entitled ‘Is Toxic Positivity A Thing?’ they were exploring the world of overly positive and optimistic people and brought up some interesting and thought provoking questions.

The long and short of it is that in most cases staying positive is a good thing but it requires self awareness.

So in this podcast, we are exploring this topic in greater detail, revealing what it takes to live a happy, healthy life and create the space for others to do the same.
