Revelation is … using the wisdom of emotions. It’s so easy to use your mind to rationalize away someone’s ‘off’ comment, little joke, or slight criticism. It’s so easy to declare yourself too sensitive or justify that the other person didn’t mean it the way you are taking it. Do not do that. There’s no reason to ignore your hurt, your anger or your shame. Just feel the emotion as a physical sensation in your body – jaw clenched (anger), stomach drop (vulnerability/hurt) or that sensation of wanting to hide (shame/humiliation). And let it reveal to you what you need to know. There is wisdom there.
