There is a hidden monkey wrench in the title. Emotions are neither negative nor positive, but let's just forget that for a moment.
Depending on the answer to that question, you are either a happy, well-adjusted person, or a wretch.
Wow, Sophie, isn't that an exaggeration? The answer to just one question?
I understand your outrage, but yes. The answer to just one question will tell me what kind of person you are. As far as everything... by the way.

As you may have noticed, it is harder and harder for me to write an article a day. There are 4000 articles on this site, and they all came easily... if I remember correctly. But suddenly I have nothing to say. Or better said: I have only to say something when someone asks me, like in coaching or on a webinar... otherwise I feel there is no listening for me to say something, therefore I have no desire, no urgency to say anything.
Why? Because I feel that I am far too removed from the mainstream, and other than my students, no one can hear me, and even my students can hear a small percentage of what I say.
The mini-series I watched is called River... we could have called it Riveting... because it is. For me...
River is a police detective. His long time partner, Frankie gets murdered: shot from a moving car River didn't see, doesn't know who shot her.
River sees and talks to, converses with dead people, especially Frankie. The love is tangible between them, between River and Frankie. The story isn't about being a psychic, afterlife... not any of that... please continue reading, without preconceived notions, or you'll miss what's important to you.
Back in the early 70's I had a live-in boy friend, who was a philosophy student. His father was a famous philosopher, was a Hegel expert.
Hegel, I hear, is one of the most impenetrable philosopher to me. The family, father and three sons, had regular philosophy lessons.
I am not interested in philosophy, not a debating/argumentative person, but lately I am encountering philosophical questions that are at the root of my teaching: teaching you to be in harmony with life, teaching you to live a happy life. 1
