“Emotion is just energy in motion.” – Lauren Chelec Cafritz
Emotion is a sensation. The words that we ascribe to them make it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ based on what society deems true. For example, society says we should feel ‘happy’ and that’s good. But what is the sensation that you notice when you feel ‘happy’? Do the corners of your mouth turn up? Is it bubbly? Do you notice lightness?
