Emotionally Intelligent Culture

In a culture where openness and transparency are bantered about like a tennis ball in a match, our culture is awkwardly missing out on the sharing of emotional intelligence. Some hide their emotions as it eats away at their core, while others wear it out on their sleeve not as a means to let it be free but to potentially attract others to their pity party.
