I think one of the hardest things to do in life is to connect with ALL OF OUR EMOTIONS.

Many of us work hard to deny or block out what we perceive to be BAD emotions. What people don’t realize is that EVERY EMOTION serves a purpose, whether SADNESS and SUFFERING or JOY and BLISS.

Emotions are often paired…UP AND DOWN are two sides of the same mental makeup.

If you struggle and sometimes, you’re OVERWHELMED trying to deal with melancholy feelings or depression, pay close attention to what you’re about to hear.

That’s because my guest this week, SUSAN CAIN, is an expert at understanding these intense negative feelings and learning how to better manage emotions, especially those that can undermine our happiness.

She is the #1 bestselling author of “Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole” and “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” which has been translated into 40 LANGUAGES, spent EIGHT YEARS on The New York Times best-seller list, and was named the #1 best book of the year by Fast Company magazine.

Susan’s TED TALKS have been viewed over 40 MILLION TIMES and LinkedIn named her the TOP 6th INFLUENCER IN THE WORLD, just behind Richard Branson and Melinda French Gates, among many other well-deserved accolades.

Susan is going to teach you why you should embrace negative emotions and answer an important question of imagining what the world would be like with NO SUFFERING OR SADNESS.

She’s also going to help you figure out why the way you MEET THE PAIN in your life defines who you are.

We’re also going to explore the role of being MELANCHOLY in our lives and dig into the fine line between being melancholy and DEPRESSED.

Those of you who are INTROVERTS (including me!) will be especially interested in what Susan has to say about connecting with others when you’re wired that way.

This week is all about making PEACE with yourself. Once you understand how all emotions can best serve you, you’ll clear a lot of the mental junk out of your life so you can find BALANCE and HAPPINESS.

And Susan Cain is absolutely the right person to help you do that.
