Do you sometimes wish they would just go away? Would you like to live with more ease and understanding of what you are feeling? The Unopened Gift will forever change your relationship with emotions. Emotional Literacy is a term coined by the authors to describe a level of emotional understanding where they are part of our everyday common sense. In an emotionally literate world we would no longer see emotions as awkward or scary but as a tool each of us possess to help navigate life. This book puts readers on a path that will result in a new understanding of emotions, their purpose and their role in living a life full of choice. The Unopened Gift reveals what we have not yet understood about emotions. That emotions aren’t in competition with reason but are an essential part of thinking; that they are constantly giving us information about the world around us; that each exists for a specific purpose and takes care of a particular aspect of life; that life without emotions would be like art without color.
