I was listening to this great talk this morning. This talks about vulnerability and how numbing emotions is not actually a good thing. You cant just numb the bad stuff, you also end up numbing the good ones in the process. That line, really struck a chord with me. The idea rather. As often, everyone tries to come up with a coping mechanism. But unless you experience the bad stuff, you lose the ability to experience the good stuff as well. Is that not true?
