If you’re a woman, it’s possible that at some point in your life you’ve been told to be less emotional, to stuff your feelings down and suck it up. According to Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Amy Stanton, emotionality is actually key to a powerful matrix of 12 qualities more women need to learn to embrace, not shun.
In this recent interview, Stanton and Sadeghi break down a list of feminine traits that have traditionally been perceived as weak – starting with “being emotional” – and providing actionable steps to overcoming outdated or unhealthy ideas about femininity. They also discuss how to harness the power of our emotional sensitivity and consciously embrace emotionality in our day-to-day life.
