Identifying, Interpreting, and Internalizing Emotions is like using a stick shift in a moving car.
The stick shift‘s function is to change gears when traveling. When one knows what they’re feeling, they can navigate their internal locus of control to choose direction and speed of choice execution.
Avoiding and suppressing emotions is like that of ignoring icy driving conditions. Pretending the ice isn’t there is fine until one has to change gears.
Integrating presence of the ice into choosing one’s next decision decreases the power the ice has over the outcome. Just as processing any emotion decreases the power it has on individual outcomes.
