How To Handle Difficult Emotions
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Emotional agility is the capacity to be healthy with our thoughts, emotions and our being.
Our emotions need a level of gentle acceptance and compassion, as they are not good or bad by themselves. Self-hustling ourselves and trying to bring out only positive emotions does not work, because when we suppress certain emotions, they get amplified or show themselves in some other form.
We are caught up in a rigid culture that values positivity.
However, when we put aside our difficult emotions in order to embrace dishonest positivity, we fail to discover skills that can help us to deal with our problems.
Simply be aware of your current state of mind, the feeling you are experiencing right now.
Then label that emotion, becoming a witness to it. Labelling detaches the emotion from us, and we begin to see it as a separate entity, no longer identifying with it, or being at its mercy.
