Freedom #3: To Feel What One Feels and not what one “ought” to feel. It has happened to all of us. We are in a situation where we are “should” feel happy or sad, but really we feel something completely different. The reality is that there is no “should” when it comes to feelings. We spend a lot of time and energy denying what we truly feel or hiding our true feelings from others. Hiding or not accepting our true feelings can lead to shame or self-doubt.
Virginia Satir was a pioneer in the therapy world in bringing amazing concepts to life to help individuals, families, and couples. She looked at the importance of the "experience" of life and how to make it a positive one. She connected the importance of our 5 senses and what impact they have on our experiences.
