“Your emotions are your messengers.”
To be true to yourself and to those around you, it’s a must to learn to manage your emotions. It is a critical step toward living a happy, successful, and fulfilled life. This doesn’t mean that you control them by ignoring them or repressing them, it simply means listening to them. What are they telling you?
When you let your emotions control you, you miss the message that they carry. When you ignore them for fear of what they might cause you to do or feel, they simply return as anger later.
Observe your self-talk as your emotions peak and fall. Tune in and identify any judgments you might have about the way you feel. These thoughts translate into what you believe to be true about yourself. They can be accurate or untrue and damaging. You decide if change is in order.
