When we try to label or categorize our emotions, we are only acknowledging a small portion of who we are and what we are feeling. Our emotions are not separate components; they are interconnected, interrelated parts of our complete selves. When we feel fear, anger or excitement, the whole self is involved. Our emotions are accompanied by our physical, bodily responses. Our intellect also has its say in how we feel about situations, people and events in our lives. And
the deepest beliefs of our souls influence how we perceive these things, having an intimate connection to our emotions and our reactions.
