Is Only An
“An emotion is only an emotion. It’s just a small part of your whole being. You are much more than your emotion. An emotion comes, stays for a while, and goes away, just like a storm. If you’re aware of that, you won’t be afraid of your emotions.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
I think life gets a little easier as you get older because emotions aren’t such a driving force.
They’re still there, of course, but familiarity gives a certain degree of control.
