I was watching an Elliot Hulse video earlier and I found his input very interesting. His views are contrary to everything that I have ever been told, in fact, it is most likely contrary to everything that many people know. Here is the video…

It is interesting, in a good way, to see an adult essentially say that having emotions does not make you weak, though that is only one message in the video – another thing that I love about Elliot Hulse’s ideas is that they often imply that we must behave authentically and do what is natural. What I found most interesting is how Elliot emphasizes that in order to become a stronger version of yourself, you need to release emotions.

Elliot’s idea reminds me of something that I have thought about recently. Upon reflection, I guess that if we visualize the human body as a tire (NOT LITERALLY!) that is being pumped, if the tire is pumped continuously, it would damage the tire and it will eventually burst. I guess that this is what happens inside the body? I am interested in seeing what people think of this!

So does that mean that if we keep emotions inside our body, we will actually put ourselves at a disadvantage and make ourselves ill? I mean, if we hold in emotions, will we not use loads of energy in supressing these emotions in the first place?

Very interesting….

  1. You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very large for me. I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the cling of it!
