Be Honest With Yourself
You know you’re feeling a type of way, but you deny it. People may ask you how you feel, and you tell them you’re doing okay when you’re not. Be honest, and open up. This is a part of being yourself, and learning to understand, and control your feelings.
Understand The Feeling of Others
How do you react when someone is sad, mad, happy, etc? Understand other people’s body language because sometimes we are not able to see past their words, but their body language gives off their true feelings. Are you more negative, and not understanding towards someone when they are feeling down? Do you put yourself in other peoples shoes? It’s good to communicate to a close family member, or friend to help you see what some of your reactions are, and how you can improve because we are not always aware of our own actions/reactions.
Look at both sides of the coin:
We are strong to our opinions, and values. When someone does not agree with us it can alter how we feel by making us feel upset, and aggravated. If you are ever in this type of situation, do not get upset, but try to understand why they agree, and think this way. Look at both sides of a story. Also, if you don’t agree with how someone feels, try to understand the different factors that could be making them feel like this. Always ask questions
Don’t let our minds control us, we control our minds:
We are human so we realize we have these emotions, and feelings. We can’t stop ourselves from feeling, but we have the power in ourselves to decide how to react to how we feel. For example, someone says something to upset you, and you’re use to attacking back, and saying something to hurt them. This is where your emotional intelligence will kick in. Try taking deep breathes, and taking a moment to understand the situation. There are others ways to address an issue instead of lashing out. Always remember that something that does not make you angry, or sad the nextdsay is not worth dwelling, or thinking about. It is just a temporary feeling.
