We come across different situations and circumstances that fill us with various emotions. Indeed, we do not have control over feelings. It is something natural that an individual feels in a particular condition. You feel strong, happy, and motivated when circumstances are in your favor. In contrast, you felt sad, vulnerable, and demotivated when not. However, it would help if you understood that you could only stand stronger by overcoming adverse situations. Let us try to understand by considering different feelings along with their causes.
Love: Feeling being loved and pampered is indeed a positive one. It leads to happiness and excitement. At the same time, if it turns into obsession, it leads to the feeling of jealousy that can make you do something wrong if not tackled mindfully. A little bit of possessiveness is healthy for a relationship. It makes us feel important to someone. But as we know, too much is wrong in any matter.
Jealousy: First of all, we must accept that feeling jealous is natural. There is no wrong with it. It goes wrong when we don’t realize that feelings come uncontrolled but should not take charge of us. Jealousy might result from comparing someone who is doing better than us in life. Another reason, as stated above, is love obsession. There could be many such reasons. However, if managed the right way, we can use it to make us better rather than let it make us act evil, pulling someone down.
Abandoned: You might feel left when someone breaks your trust or your loved ones leave you and don’t support you when you expected them to. It leads to another feeling of loneliness. You feel like no one is with you, and you are suitable for nothing. If not managed properly, it can lead to the feeling of taking revenge or extreme sadness, doing nothing, and losing interest in life. On the contrary, if you take it as an opportunity to reflect and reinvent yourself, you will come out as a transformed person. You might learn the root cause of miseries that you feel are happening to you. As for me, it could be over-expectations that is one of the root cause of getting hurt. Further, the day you become comfortable being alone than in an opposing company.
Anxiety: It is one of the consequences of all unmanaged feelings like excitement, upset, fear of failure, etc. The root cause is living in the past and future without reflecting in the present. We keep regretting past mistakes and fearing future losses. As a result, we let anxiety overpower us, stopping us from trying. One can tackle it by stepping ahead despite fear and anxiety.
Similarly, a feeling of anger, regret, etc., exists, and it keeps on. There is no end to emotions leading to feelings and vice-versa. You don’t have control over the situations and different feelings it breeds in us. However, you can manage them to grow better using your willpower. Moreover, it is as essential to manage positive feelings like excitement as to manage negative feelings and emotions. An overwhelmed mind takes away the power to think mindfully and can lead to accidental situations.
It is best not to neglect the vibes you feel in your surroundings or when someone talks to you or touches you. We should also mind that no matter if someone understands your feelings or not but you should try your best to do theirs. It is because you know how it feels when you find no one who comprehends you without any judgment. Everyone might not have the courage to cope with the turbulence inside them. So, it is best to be a comforting hand for someone at the right time.
To strengthen your will and balance your turbulent emotions, yoga, meditation, self pep talk, following your hobbies, or even building new ones are some of the most effective ways. Moreover, penning down and reading something that resonates with your feeling are the best ways to know and express your emotions. To understand and manage your feelings, I want to share some feeling quotes with you all.
