Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of,
control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal
relationships judiciously and empathetically.
Recognising the importance of the relationship between the individual and the community, it promotes independence, free thinking and decision making while contributing to whichever communities we live in.
It is not a panacea for all ills, just one means of thinking about ageing in a positive and creative way. It may not appeal to all, it is written without prejudice by someone who is from the same generation as you. Providing guidelines and solutions, it is primarily something to be read and considered in the light of your own experiences, hopes and concerns over the future. There are no further instructions; after all, life doesn’t come with an instruction manual: dip in, dip out, read intensely or skip to the practical solutions. No one is watching – you can make your own decisions as an independent and inspirational individual member of whichever communities you choose to be part of.
Fundamentally, Emotional Intelligence is about how good you feel about yourself. It acknowledges learnt and yet to be learnt skills, while recognising that we can all share our aspirations, thoughts, feelings and expertise, no matter how old we think we are.
