In our Emotion Dynamics Facebook group, we search for images or messages that treat emotions and empathy with respect, but we don’t find many.
So we create our own!
This meme helps us think more clearly about the connection between emotions and problems, and it challenges a lot of messages that blame emotions for everything. Feel free to share this Better Meme.
If you’ve read The Language of Emotions or The Art of Empathy, and you’d like to join our Facebook group, come on over to The Language of Emotions and Empathy group on Facebook.
Description: Photo of green leaves on an ivory background, with these words:
Your emotions don’t create problems — they arise to help you deal with problems.
Learn their language, and you can change the world.
