The 4 Main Stages Of Dealing With Emotions And How To Avoid Getting Overwhelmed

by Conscious Reminder

For human beings, emotions are the inescapable and inexplicable part of their lives. They are actually energy movements which share specific essential messages.

Emotional beings give us emotional responses which are based on outer and inner stimuli which they perceive. But, there are also people who are so-called emotional illiterates. This means that they are not aware of what each of their emotions tries to tell him or her.

And, not only that, they cannot even properly manage those emotions. A lot of people are not aware of the gift which this emotional being really represents. 

This will make them the slaves to the emotional being, or it will shrink their free will.

So, these are the three main ways in which we can deal with our emotions, or how we can rather manage them:

1. Reacting

Reacting is definitely one of the most utilized ways of adequately dealing with our emotions.

Every time we feel something while the day lasts, most of those emotions which arise are also reacted upon. So we are going to respond to the emotion based on what we feel during the day.

When we feel happy we smile, when we feel sadness we frown or whine when we feel anger we might argue or scream, or we might even start throwing things around.

Our actions will entirely control the energy which is in a particular motion, or also the emotion. So, the reaction on certain emotions will be the possible easiest way of dealing with those emotions as it usually requires conscious efforts.

Moreover, it is a reaction based on instincts, which is ordinary for us mammals. But, the consequences when it comes to reacting to our emotions will not always be in our best favor too.

2. Suppressing

In fact, when we find it hard to handle such emotions, or we only believe so, then we would not like to accept feeling them. So, we usually turn away or escape from them, just like they don’t exist. Or, if our reactions on what we are feeling are inappropriate, we are going to suppress the energy within us.

As we are not animals anymore, we are self-aware, and we tend to follow the rules within our society. We may even decide what the emotions we would react on are, and what should not be expressed.

As the expressing of certain emotions can sometimes be shameful when in a specific social environment, the energy can be held stuck. However, this energy is going to stay like that within our system, moreover affecting our being, choices, and perspective.

3. Exercising 

Exercising an emotion actually means taking its energy and channeling it into the activity of our conscious choice.

As we regularly edit what the emotions on which we are going to react, and which of them we are going to hide are, it will be paramount to have outlets for this energy that is stuck.

However, how exercising our emotions will become our major outlet? Well, it is taking all those emotions that we suppressed, as we don’t react to them and uses this energy.

A lot of people exercise their emotions when they workout. There are some that dance away their emotions, while others channel them when they play a game.

In fact, exercising our emotions will be healthier than putting them away and suppressing them. Also, it will give us much better control over every consequence of our actions.

4. Releasing 

Releasing will definitely be the secret and mysterious way of dealing with our emotions. When we go by our day, choosing what emotions we are going to hold, we don’t always have to exercise the energy of those emotions, but we can only release it.
