HAPPY NEW YEAR – 2016 IS GOING TO ANOTHER GREAT YEAR.
There are a million different ways you can feel, but scientists have classified human emotions into a few basics that everyone can recognize: joy, acceptance, fear, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger, and anticipation
- Jealousy for example, is a manifestation of fear – fear that you’re not “as good” as something else, fear of being abandoned because you’re not “perfect” or “the best.”
- Know what kinds of situations cause which emotions, and be able to tell the difference between anger and fear; sometimes multiple emotions can bubble up at the same time, and the person going through the emotions might not be able to distinguish the two.
Recognize that emotions don’t just appear mysteriously out of nowhere.Many times, we’re at the mercy of our emotions on a subconscious level. By recognizing your emotions on a conscious level, you’re better able to control them.
- It is also good to recognize an emotion from the moment it materializes, as opposed to letting it build up and intensify. The last thing you want to do is ignore or repress your feelings, because if you’re reading this, you probably know that when you do that, they tend to get worse and erupt later.
- Ask yourself throughout the day: “How am I feeling right now?” If you can,write down situations that caused an interesting emotion in you. That way, you can help pinpoint the moment it appeared instead of letting its origin slip away.
- Take ownership of your emotions. Don’t blame them on other people. Recognize when you try to blame other people for your emotions, and don’t let your mind get away with that trick. Taking full responsibility for your emotions will help you better control them.
