Whether it is with joy, fear, or depression, our whole selves react to our feelings.
Each morning for the past few days, I have awoken wondering how I am going to make it through the next few days. School, work, medical appointments, honor society commitments, and friendships are all weighing down on me. Although these are all good things, the amount of everything in my life is so much that I feel like I am going to break.
Our bodies, minds, emotions, and spirits are more attached than we realize. When in pain, every bit of ourselves aches. Joy radiates throughout our beings when we hear good news and makes us think good thoughts and feel well. Thus, it would make sense to see our whole self as connected.
