But the man is consistent. And its important and primary component – corporeality and the affective sphere. Sensations, emotions, and feelings. is a fast evaluation of the events and reflect the needs of the body.
Emotions can not be controlled, they can live. And of course to suppress that is one of the causes of psychological problems.
unfortunately, neither in school nor in most families, do not teach emotional competence – attention to the affective sphere, living emotions, feelings, States. If this practice began already in childhood, most of the problems could have been avoided.
