They are also a big part of what moves others to act towards (or away from) you.
So the idea is to understand this, and not look to suppress the feelings, but rather to manage them more effectively.
Emotion is your bodies reaction to some internal or external event. A very necessary part of activating or relaxing your body , it includes the physical changes and the motivation to act. So Emotions are a key part of the energy system, necessary achieve anything (and everything).
Learning to tap into this energy and utilize it is a powerful skill in pursuing and achieving your goals, and in connecting with and engaging others. It is also important to be able to quieten the energy when action is not possible or is not a good choice.
