The power of emotional courage


“How we deal with our inner world drives everything. Every aspect of how we love, how we live, how we parent and how we lead.”

Emotions are not simply good or bad. They’re our signals. Accepting and living with the whole bandwidth of human emotion is part and parcel of living a meaningful life. From psychologist Susan David, here is a moving TED talk on why it’s OK not to always be OK, and instead find courage in our emotion.

Around the world people are championing Mental Health Awareness week. Susan’s talk is all about unpicking rigid denial of our emotions to find greater fulfillment in everything that we do. 17 minutes long, it’s worth every second.
