Negative emotions tell us of these inner
Yet so often we treat these negative emotions as if they were enemies--
instead of friends.
If we are to find happiness,
we must not avoid these helpful beacons of light
from our innermost selves.
Instead, we must follow our strongest emotions
to get to the source of the problems or conflicts.
Using the self-exploration/problem-solving method
can transform conflicts and confusion into inner harmony.
It is at the heart of all good psychotherapeutic approaches.
We can learn to be our own therapists
and effectively solve most problems ourselves.
Knowing that there are many routes to happiness (in any situation)
gives us peace of mind and inner power.
Then, we can choose to be happyby picking the best internal and external routes to happiness
for that particular situation.
