Why am I feeling this way?
Why am I sad?
Why am I angry?
What am I perpetually disturbed about?

When we sit and think about the answers to these questions, we get a step closer to knowing our motivations.
The awareness of why we feel what we feel, makes the feeling less necessary, less needed, and over time less effective.
Over time, we know ourselves through our feelings. 

In solitude we find our answers. In tagging along with the world, we are mostly left alone.
