    I so agree with no. 2! So often people think, when you have to deal with your emotions, you have to control them. Feeling angry? You can’t. It’s not just socially acceptable to all of a sudden vent out your frustrations. Feeling happy? Don’t let other people know you are. It’s not a very “adult” thing to do to show enthusiasm for your life. All of this suppression of emotions has made us all mindless robots doing thankless jobs we don’t care about, but we don’t realize that precisely because we’re not trying to be more mindful!

    Nice work! Each moment in our life will only happen once. It’s best to enjoy them all as they come and go. After all, we only have so much time to live.
