There is no way around it: Our mental and emotional experiences are continuously bumping into each other.
Sometimes they give us contradictory information, and other times they become entangled and leave us in confusion.
But our thoughts and emotions are essential for the richness of human experience and the uniqueness of our individual journeys.
Mental and emotional health are fraternal twins. They might look, sound and act differently, but they are inextricably linked. We all know both of these twins, but most of us understand or feel comfortable with one of them more than the other. Part of maturing is getting to know and appreciate the more difficult twin.
Many of us identify with our mental self and are less familiar, less happy with our emotions. Though our thinking might give us problems, it is the uncomfortable feelings associated with our thoughts that we dislike. How often have you considered, “Life would be so much better (or easier) without emotions.”
One way to appreciate and accept the difficult emotional "twin" is to understand what is meant by emotional health.
