"I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, and to enjoy them” Oscar Wilde

 

Editor’s Note

Can you Master your Emotions?

It is said that he who can master his emotions is highly evolved; we hear and speak of emotional intelligence and it seems to be something accomplished by a few but longed for by many. 
We are also encouraged to show ourselves as we are and express ourselves to avoid getting sick or suffering.
I guess we are once more before another question of balance. 
What are you better at? Mastering or sharing emotions? Are you balanced?
