How To Control Negative Emotions
Updated: Jun 4, 2018
Lets face it, we’ve all had times in our lives when we acted out in ways that were not appropriate and may have hurt other people. We all tend to release negative emotions from time to time but it can become very bad if it affect the relationship you have with yourself and others. What are negative emotions? Negative emotions cause you to dislike yourself and others, and take away your confidence. Emotions which can become negative are hate, anger, jealousy and sadness. Yet, in the context, these feelings are completely natural. Most negative emotions come from things that happened to most adults as children or any deep wounds one may have which have not been healed. For example: A woman by the name of Mary lost her husband five years ago, before she lost her husband she was very athletic, spiritual and bubbly. Today Mary is overweight, she speaks negatively about other women and she doesn’t like to interact with people unless she is forced to. Little do we realize is there are tons of Mary’s walking around pretending to be okay. Mary issue is that a threatening life change happened which she did not plan for like anyone else and instead of dealing with it in a positive way she’s been dealing with in in a negative way. What you must realize is that things happen in life in which we have no control over and the key is to keep doing personal development. Keep in mind that anything that happened to you was not your fault nor did it happen by accident. There’s a saying that goes like this: God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers” and you’re the strongest. Here are a few tips to help you overcome negative emotions:
Spend time with children: Children are fearful, and being in a position where your confidence is shot can help when you interact with a child. You need pure love!
Spend time in nature: Nature herself is the healer of all things… especially spending time in the sun helps ease depression.
Do things that will move you forward: Things such as learning a new language, reading, exercising, swimming, and traveling etc. Doing things that are nurturing helps develop you causing you to have more meaning in your life.
Eat Clean: The bad fats and chemicals in most food interrupt with the cells in your body and brain stripping your energy and causing diseases. It is best you drink plenty of water and eat 90% or water based foods.
Feel the fear and do it anyway: Face whatever happened to you and speak to past self in third person as if you were nurturing and caring for someone else. Also, it helps to have a journal to jot down the things you are feeling. Built up pain is like a faucet that is blocked with dirty hair, you have to remove the hair in order for the water to flow properly. It is the same way with everything you are holding inside, let it go so your life can flow.
