How to get in touch with Dr. Marie Murphy
In this episode…
How do you respond to conflict? Do you shut down and try to push the discomfort away? Or, do you barrel through the situation and burn down anything in your path? Whatever your response, do you take the time to process what you’re feeling?
According to Dr. Marie Murphy, many of us never slow down long enough to process our emotions. In fact, more often than not, we don’t know what we’re actually feeling during moments of tension, such as an affair. As Dr. Murphy says the way we’ve been taught to understand our emotions has distorted how we engage with the way we feel. So, what now?
In this episode of Your Secret is Safe with Me, Dr. Marie Murphy is joined by John Corcoran, Co-Founder of Rise25, to talk about emotions and how we process them. She dives into the distinction between feelings, thoughts, and circumstances, the inherent versus assigned meaning behind emotions, and what happens when you take the time to sit with your feelings. Keep listening.
