I say, “Don’t suppress feelings, feel them and then decide what to do because of them.”

From time to time something happens that blows me away and I have no words to describe my feelings; at those times I feel astonished. I need time to think about what happened and decide how I’ll respond. At first I might respond like this but then I might change my mind to respond like that, and that’s my prerogative; I can change my mind as many times as I want. I say that feeling astonished is okay. It’s my true feeling and doesn’t matter anyway because what matters is my response.
