"Emotion is motion that gives momentum to change."

- Emotion is energy or a movement that will bring us to some sort of action (good or bad). Pain is a form of an emotion that will make you aware of what disturbs you. When you are disturbed you will be motivated to change. Love is similar in that it also disturbs you (positively) in order to motivate and move you closer to a potential. Initially, you may lump all emotions into one catagory (as bad). The recovery process will help you identify and differentiate the different emotions you experience so you can utilize them in a proactive way.
