So let me ask you… do you let your emotions get out of control. Are they affecting your relationships?
I want you to know, you can learn a new life skill where your intense emotions can actually empower you instead. And even enhance your relationships.
If you’re not coping with your strong emotions they will get in the way. You’ll feel overwhelmed, angry, anxiety-ridden and or depressed but not know how to deal with it – creating an environment of unhappy relationships in the process.
And so when you have these strong feelings you’ll find you have no one to talk to. Or if you do it doesn’t really help. It might even create more resentment and confusion in your relationships. Or maybe it helps a little bit but there’s no resolution.
Also, you may have the pattern of holding your emotions in and then it starts eating you up inside. And then you explode and say things you regret. Making the situation even worse – feeling guilty afterward.
Does any of this happen to you? It means you aren’t coping with your difficult emotions in a productive way. Therefore your emotions are ultimately in charge and you aren’t. That’s not good. But it’s because of a lack of emotional awareness. Which prevents you from experiencing true emotional intimacy.
Do you know where your
negative emotions come from?
Coping with negative emotions is not rocket science. I mean once you commit to it and learn the process. I created an easy emotional processing method called The 4 N’s. It’s an easy 4 step process to help you understand where your emotions are coming from and what to do about it.
This process gives you a skill for coping with strong emotions. And you’ll have a deeper understanding of what’s really going on inside you. It will no longer be a mystery. Or something you don’t have control over. You’ll feel more in charge of your emotions instead of your emotions being in charge of you.
If your negative emotions are hard to cope with it’s because you’ve learned to repress them instead. Explosive emotions that are destructive are repressed emotions.
The problem is that emotions don’t go away. They’ll just come out sideways expressing themselves with behavior that sabotaging your life and your relationships.
Examples of Repressed Emotions Coming out Sideways
- Yelling and Raging
- Please Pleasing
- Silent Treatment
Instead of repressing your negative emotions, face your negative emotions. Don’t be afraid of them. Don’t run from them or deny them. The best way of coping with repressed emotions is to learn the importance of your emotions and how to honor them.
You see, your emotions are extremely powerful. You can try.. but you can’t push them away. They need to be held and positively expressed instead of denied. This will help you understand the deeper psychological patterns within you that need to be healed.
