Why bother with dealing with our emotions when we can simply dump them on to the next vulnerable person we see or convert them into irrational yet viral tweets — to change the quality of our life experiences. Here are 18 solid reasons to take responsibility of our own emotions.
We need to know what exactly is bothering us so that we don’t turn our real friends into enemies by hating them for a wound they didn’t even cause! Being aware of our feelings and choosing to trace their root causes is a healthy way to be selfish.
It is an essential part of our self-knowledge. It will help us discover our true selves and live a stable life.
It helps us stay authentic and build meaningful relationships with people for we are truly able to connect with them as humans as well as the members of the society.
It is directly beneficial to our careers. Once we have it sorted in our personal lives - the habits will naturally carry off to our professional lives as well.
We gotta stay rational so that our minds can be strong.
Unacknowledged and unexpressed emotions can turn back at us by driving us into behaving irrationally selfishly. Instead of being vulnerable and straightforward, we become cold, bitter, manipulative, cunning and controlling.
Emotions are directly linked with our physical bodies and the state of our emotional body reflects in the physical body in the form of dark circles, body posture, body weight and body aroma. This is not the most favorable condition for our success in the social sphere.
It helps us move past the past. For we store emotional damages from our childhood. We can get stuck in the loops of emotions and become their slaves if we do not resolve them, heal ourselves and let them go.
Emotions are the key to self-understanding and self-knowledge.
When we don’t deal with them the moment they present themselves and the more we procrastinate or put them aside for whatever reasons, we start building for ourselves an unhealthy, compounded blob of emotions much like the monstrous guest in the movie Spirited Away — and we keep carrying these burdens around until one day we explode which is obviously of no use to anyone and only creates chaos.
Being responsible to emotions is a natural precursor to a focused mind which thinks clearly.
We can avoid creating non-existent problems adding to the pool of our fears, anxieties and self-doubt.
Most importantly, being responsible with our emotions on a regular basis will help us stay in the present moment, and experience life in its fullness — a better place to be than to be lost in the loop of our emotions.
The tendency to handle our emotions rationally leads us to become better at not putting ourselves in situations which leave us scarred and wounded.
We find it easier to connect with the right kind of people instead of adapting to the demands of people who don’t really care about us.
It makes us creative and productive instead of destructive.
To live up to our full potential, we need to be aware of our true selves which we cannot attain unless we have explored the world of our emotions responsibly.
It can open up to us an inner world of our positive energies with the peace of mind to apply them in real life.
