Go Ahead, Be Emotionful

Has anyone ever told you you’re being too emotional? Have you told yourself that you’re being too emotional? If someone ever says  this to you, stand proud and say, I'm proud to be emotionful! This episode dives into what it actually means to be emotionful, what are emotions, how emotionful people tend to be more empathetic and compassionate. I also go into things to consider if someone says "You're too emotional":Consider the source of who is telling you this. Can lead to negative coping mechanismsSomeone may tell you you’re emotional primarily for negative emotions, not happy, content emotions. But just like happy and positive emotions, negative emotions need to come out too. We often turn to negative coping mechanisms such as: Shutting down - internalizing emotionsSuppressing it - smile and pretendBecoming self conscious and insecure - judge ourselves negatively Holding your emotions in and stuffing them inside - creates energy inside, leading to depression, anxiety, feeling completely insecure.  So, don’t disregard your emotions - positive or negativeEmotionful people tends to feel things more deeply and for longer than the average person. People who are highly emotional are often deeply compassionate, empathetic and self-aware, but at the same time may feel exhausted from feeling all the feels all the time.Let's take a step back into what is emotion:  Emotions are psychological states brought on by neurophysiological changes, variously associated with thoughts, feelings, behavioural responses, and a degree of pleasure or displeasure.Emotionful: Of or relating to your emotion, exhibiting emotionUse your emotions in a positive way, how can you use them to better yourself, to positively impact your life, to learn something new about yourself? Take the time to explore your emotions, rather than dismissing them or someone else dismissing them saying you’re being emotional. . Don't repress your emotions, aim for regulating your emotions Identify what you're feeling and what is the key source, or trigger of this emotionAccept all of your emotions, positive and negativeKeep a journal - get it out and brain dump to make more room for positive thoughts and positive coping mechanismsTry deep breathing, or even tapping meditationKnow when to express yourself. Set time aside to express yourself, and sometimes it’s not expressing yourself to someone. Writing it down, praying about it, expressing it to God or your higher power whatever that is. Get control of this - know when it’s appropriate by setting time aside to work through your emotions. Give yourself some space - give yourself time - be gentle with yourself, have empathy for yourselfUse positive self-talk and actually listen to yourself.That’s it for this episode.
