TED Talks: The gift and power of emotional courage

The way we deal with our emotions shapes everything that matters: our actions, careers, relationships, health and happiness. In this deeply moving, funny and potentially life-changing talk, psychologist Susan David challenges a culture that prizes positivity over emotional truth, and shares some powerful strategies for emotional agility. A talk to share.

“Normal, natural emotions are now seen as good or bad. And being positive has become a new form of moral correctness. People with cancer are automatically told to just stay positive. Women, to stop being so angry. And the list goes on. It’s a tyranny. It’s a tyranny of positivity. And it’s cruel. Unkind. And ineffective. And we do it to ourselves, and we do it to others.”
