Emotions are what drive us. Early in life, children are taught that patience is a virtue. In fact, your parents have taught you that being mad, angry, sad, depressed, or even thoughtless and carefree can never solve anything.
The thing is, your body knows by instinct an immediate reaction definitely helps solve something. Imagine your brain as a water gun full of water. When you never let that water go, the weight puts pressure on you. At this point, you can definitely imagine how it feels to depressurize.
Indeed, someone’s bound to get hurt when you release your emotions. However, you need them too, and it’s not because you’re gonna break your neck from all that water weight but because your head will explode literally.
Emotional Release is Honesty
It’s never easy to see your head explode. However it’s easier to manage if you know when to let your head explode.
Most meditation commands that people see the bright side of things and let petty emotion go. In fact, they’re told arguments should never affect anyone emotionally and instead answer a logical and value-adding resolution to both parties.
However, when you hide your emotions, you hide your real personality. Each day, you feel the pressure of just saying how you really feel. Releasing your emotions, whether you’re angry, sad, depressed, or just plain happy, helps people read you and communicate with you better. Believe me, this is real because studies have been made and people who always know when to release their emotions are healthier than most people.
It’s Not Like You’re Negotiating a Nuclear Truce All The Time
True enough, it’s not saying we should always “explode” our emotions every time we can. It’s healthy to release it, but it’s also important to know when to do it.
Some people feel like a minor slip-up of their true intent will cause an organizational war between themselves and their peers. That isn’t so. The presence of your emotions is your body sending signals to people that you don’t feel okay with their thoughts and would like to contest it.
In some cases, you need to show your intellectual side by contesting the fallacy of an argument. However, it’s not bad to show how you definitely feel about the opposing side’s argument as long as you make sense because it helps you release emotions, which is healthy.
The Things You Fear Need Not Control You
Fear is often a driving force for people who hold their emotions at bay. It’s the fear of losing your job, making your wife angry, getting your child upset, people making fun of you, shaming everyone at a party, and more.
However, you can’t make everyone like you. If you can’t stand by yourself, you can never trust yourself. Therefore, you’ll always doubt yourself including each decision you made and reaction you had when it came to a serious topic.
Always Have a Healthy Relationship With Your Emotions
The root of all personal troubles is never another person. It starts with you. The way you react is something you might see positive or negative. However, accepting the consequences of your emotional response is also a key to having peace of mind.
True enough, you’ll need to keep your emotions at bay when discussing business and professional matters. On the other hand, you’ll need to release those emotions later in the day too. However, never ever forget to take your anger, sadness, bitterness, depression, and everything else out from your system to keep your mind healthy and happy.
