3 Must Read Books To Understand Human Emotions - Book Review



Emotions are body reactions to what you are thinking in various situations. They are neither right nor wrong. You just feel a certain way , sometimes you being aware and other times you are not. There is no one way to deal with it. Every individual have their own intelligence to handle them. Think about something that you don't have, something that you want. Have you ever been happy while not having it? Or if you didn't have it but didn't care, would you be unhappy? Or If you were doing something that kept you away from thinking about it , would you be unhappy about it? You see, not having doesn't make you feel bad. Thinking about it does. Therefore these are your thoughts that have created these emotions.

So today I will be taking you through a roller costar ride of emotions and thoughts that triggers those feelings. But if you want to read and understand them better I recommend you to read these three wonderful e- books which talks about them in detail but in different ways.

Inner Feeling by Cindy Ann D'silva 



Cindy Ann D’Silva is a blogger, influencer, content writer and a belly dance instructor. Prior to this, she had a full time job and sang with a band & choir in Kuwait, where she was born and bred. She is a lifestyle blogger and her blogging style is very relatable as she writes from her heart and personal experience.

Inner feeling talks about  people's hesitation to open up about their feelings, sometimes because they don't  recognize them or probable they avoid due to various repercussions. The best thing about this book is that, it talk about acceptance which is "the" solution to most of the problems that deals with emotions. Once you accept , it becomes easier not just to understand but to deal with various feelings one encounters. Author has touched upon emotions like Gaslighting, Mistakes and Jealousy which are hardly acknowledged by any individual or society at large.

While reading this book you will feel connected with each emotion and you will get a feeling that the author is talking from her own experience. This book is written with honesty and it resonate with me completely and I am sure everyone would be able to relate with it too.
