How To Be Emotionally Intelligent.

Without an emotionally intelligent mind, we will simply live our lives at the mercy of life.

1. Constantly Educate Yourself.

Read books concerning emotional intelligence, listen to podcasts, and watch YouTube videos.

You might not need to take all the advice you see on the internet because let’s be honest, sometimes it’s just a bunch of hooey. However, like they all say, and when I say “they”, I’m not exactly sur...

2. Invest Yourself Into Learning About Your Emotions.

Heck, start journaling. I know many people think you have to be a girl or be gay to write about your feelings, but that’s far from the truth.

Spending time with yourself will need to become a priority of yours, for you to figure out your emotions; what they do to you, and how they are going...

4. Realize That The End Results Would Be Benefit You.

6. Learn To Accept The Truth.

Sometimes, we know the truth, but because it’s true, we ignore it. Why? Well, the truth fucking hurts. It sucks for someone to tell you the only reason you’re liked is because of your money, so we ignore it and think it’s because we’re superb-looking when that differs fro...

7. Be Honest To Yourself.

Honesty to others may be the best policy. But do you know what’s an even better policy? Honesty to oneself. This is because it’s harder to tell everyone the truth when you are the living manifestation of a lie.

If you are honest about your strengths and weaknesses, with your emotional intel...

8.Aim To Be A Dope Ass Strong Ass Emotionally Strong Person.

Have you ever fantasized about being untouchable; envisioning yourself as this impenetrable brick wall of character that people can’t fuck with no matter how hard they try.

9. Take Emotional Unintelligence As A Malnourishment.

Emotional intelligence is a state you get to when you have eaten enough emotional veggies.

When you are emotionally malnourished, you crash and burn when anything puts a strain on you. While those who have digested enough emotional veggies get to draw on the strength gotten from the emotion...

10. Stop Expecting To Be Perfect.

None of us are perfect. Everything that’s existing in the world today is because of imperfect human beings like you and me, proposing our assumptions of how things ought to be. And I can’t even name how many of these assumptions are biased towards our feelings and emotions.
