I hear this statement all the time in my practice. Much to your surprise, if you are a crier, it does NOT equate to being an emotional person.
A person that is emotional is completely in touch with what they are feeling. These people are deep, well aware of what choices they make in life and why. Knowing how you feel raises your awareness to all new levels. To “feel” your way through life rather than “think” your way through life produces vastly different experiences and outcomes.
Practice asking yourself, "How do I feel" instead of "What do I think about this," and begin to open your heart up to become authentically emotional.
