To create a portrait of yourself, first you need to understand yourself. I won’t say that the next task will be easy, in fact for most it probably won’t be. It will however be the one part of the course that will possibly help you the most, at least it did for me.
For some of us it is easy for us to say that we are feeling anxious, depressed, sad, down, lonely, happy or excited. What though do those feelings really mean and how do they make us feel.
How we feel can affect us in different ways. Emotions and feelings can make us feel tired, restless, edgy, calm or peaceful. They can also inspire other thoughts, feeling closed in or trapped, or in a wide open space and free.
These feelings and emotions shape the way that we view ourselves and create the person that we are at that moment.
