Humans are emotional beings. That being said, isn't it ironic how there were no "emotion management" classes for us as humans to help effectively deal with emotions as we were growing up, yet we had mandatory classes/subjects in just about everything else?
Emotions can be very strong and complex, and can cause serious personal problems if not dealt with in a constructive manner.
This forum is dedicated to helping people with emotional issues, as God knows our emotions can get us into trouble if not properly acted upon.

I recently finished reading "The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom" by Don Miguel Ruiz after someone had recommended it to me.
This book is excellent, and can be dramatically life-changing if you choose to practice the ideas he communicates, which come from the ancient Toltec wisdom of the native people of Southern Mexico. It's also fairly small (only 130+ pages), to the point, and very easy to read.
The author reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. When we are ready to change these agreements, there are four deceptively simple, yet powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles.
The book offers a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love, after getting rid of fears.

Beliefs and belief systems that encourage limits on human behaviour are not necessarily a bad thing.
Left on their own, in this day and age, many people would embark on a path to self-destruction in pursuit of whatever they think life is supposed to be about, and lose all sense of balance.
Its possible to have a very complete life without experiencing every high and low in every area, that some people seem to think that is necessary to have lived life thoroughly.
People also forget about internal and mental development of intellect and wisdom as achievements that can bring great emotional satisfaction. People talk about climbing Mount Everest, but getting a Ph.D. is also comparable in magnitude, if not more so.
People need to tie their emotions to meaningful accomplishments in life based on the wisdom of the past, not their own whims or pet idealogies.
