The best thing about human species is that we, blessed with some biological states triggered by our environment and people living around us. These states are called emotions and make us humans. Basic types of emotions are happiness, sadness, excitement, embarrassment, fear, disgust, anger, etc. Emotions, directly linked to the state of mind. Our mind can have different states depending upon our internal stimuli, which can be initiated by anything affecting us through words or actions from past, present, and future. Oh! Again emotions and how to control them!!! Mostly, we need to control our feelings when we are living in hostels. In hostels, we are sad because of away from home and in tensions to manage monthly expenses and study schedule.
Being emotional is a gift and a weakness at the same time. The purest form of emotion is empathy. Feeling similarity in other people’s situations is very important these days. That’s how we can relate and treat others the way we want to be treated. Being empathetic helps us see through the problem and come up with a solution rather than reacting in the right direction.
Being sympathetic all the time is also a problem nowadays, and people take advantage of our sympathetic nature. So, there is a need to balance emotions and how to control them.
Reacting the right way is the first solution to any problem, but when it comes to controlling your emotions, it becomes a big problem — sometimes reacting the way others expect us to be the right way rather than walking by the principles. Therefore, being empathetic is the best technique that should be learned gradually.
Controlling emotions is an art of life and prevents us from being controlled by our emotions. One of the best ways of controlling any emotion is not to express it at any level. As emotions are psychological triggers; therefore, these can be reduced and eliminated gradually. There is a learning curve effect in controlling the emotions. The effort which will be required to control any emotion for the first time will never be the same for the second time and so on.
There should be a balance maintained while learning to control emotions. This balance achieved when one understands the thin line of having the right emotions and the wrong ones. Being happy and positive will never be the right emotion all the time. It’s the same as being selfish will never always be a false emotion to carry. Therefore it should be learned when being selfish and taking a stand for you is mandatory and when by just leaving a situation the way it is the right thing to do.
As mentioned above, never behave the right way all the time. Teach your mind to sit and think of all the factors influential in a particular situation and then chose the best option available.
Controlling emotions is not an easy road to take. It’s a never-ending journey. But small successes are coming along the way. If we think about a big picture, probably by controlling you will never achieve something big or significant in your life, but you will definitely become a big and the most exceptional person. And that’s why we are here on earth to become a better version of ourselves every single day.
If you can control your emotions, then it’s a good thing, but it becomes effective when you utilize it. How can you use your emotions to broaden your awareness?. One of the most straightforward approaches is to ask any trustworthy person in your life to guide you with what you are thinking right at that time.
Suppose a situation, that when we are hurt on something, there are two ways one is we make us alone and other is we interact with other more to get rid of that sad feeling. So the second solution is a good one. Utilize any medium to express the positive thought and emotions to everyone as all the people are connected emotionally. It is always an excellent approach to free you up from the pent-up sentiments. So, choose anything which can bring up healthy thought in you. This healthy thought is essential when you are away from home, and you have to manage everything on your own.
As we mentioned in the start that there is a high involvement of surroundings to the nature of our emotions.
