How To Take Control Of Your Emotions
As a result of our ‘humanness’ we are emotional beings. Throughout our days we ride on the emotional sea of the ups and downs of our emotions and not taught how to control our emotions when we were young, we grew into adult hood being unconscious of the fact that our emotions were controlling us.
But it’s never too late to start to change our perspectives and realise that there is a way out from the never ending cycles of the highs and lows of everyday living. As we start to become more conscious of the way we are feeling within, we start to realise that our emotions are linked to how we think about something. If we can change the way we think, then we change the way we react. For example, you’re in a restaurant waiting for your food to come out of the kitchen. It’s been a while and you’re starving. If you think it’s unacceptable that it has taken this long you will start to feel tense and anger will rise in you which will then impact on the mood of everyone else around you. Suddenly the atmosphere at the table will change as everyone focuses on what they haven’t got – their food in front of them.
Alternatively you could chose to think that there’s no point in getting upset about it because it won’t change the situation, and that it will be out soon and enjoy the company you are with. And this is such an important point – knowing the difference between what we can change and what we can’t.
You have the power to change how you respond to life – you can make conscious decisions that bring you more peace in your inner world, which ultimately brings you more peace and happiness in the external world that you experience. What isn’t really spoken about is that most people repress their emotions, which in turn causes their emotions to become even stronger, as they have no way out yet they start to affect us more and more. As you start to not be so afraid of feeling your emotions, you ironically start to lessen their grip on you as you accept that they are there and allow them to show themselves to you. We have less control over our emotions when we supress them, than we are prepared to acknowledge them, feel them and set them free.
