Three Major Families of Emotion
The three major families of emotion are guilt, rejection and abandonment. All other emotions can be traced back to one of these. For example, if we are angry, it might be because we feel rejected by our children when they don’t follow our advice. Grief over the death of a loved one, or divorce, sits over abandonment. Fear relates to all three families. So, tracing your emotions back to one of these three expediently gets to the root of our suffering.
