Emotional wellness holds the most crucial key to lead you to the proper life. Emotional stability tends hard to achieve especially for people in their 20’s because they have to deal with Quarter Life Crisis. To achieve stability, you need to acknowledge the emotion then express it in appropriate ways.
Understanding and respecting yourself is the simplest way to know what kind of emotion that you feel right now. Or you can do a meditation to reflect what is in your mind. But, many people usually have problems when they are trying to express their emotions and it can give impacts to the surrounding.
Some of the bad ways to express the emotion are like yelling or exploding over something without a specific reason. It should be avoided because whether it is positive or negative energy you radiate from you, it will give impact to the other’s emotions.
On the other hand, if you are not expressing the emotion that you feel, it will be piled up and trapped inside yourself. You will potentially explode at an unexpected time and an unexpected way. So, here some best ways to express your true feelings.
1. Stay Positive
When you make a mistake, accept it. Do the affirmation that everybody in this universe makes a mistake not even once. You are human too and do not blame yourself for too long. Do not sink yourself into negativity or it will drain your energy. Learn from your mistake and make a deal with yourself that you are not doing that again in the future.
Dig into yourself by giving “why” question. “Why am I feeling this way?” “Why do I deserve to be treated this way?” The way you respond matters. Know every feeling you have in your spare time without distraction, the best time is before you go to bed at night.
It sounds cheesy, right? But, surely love or to be loved will make you have a “way” to confess your feeling properly. It’s like the basic needs of human beings. Your emotion will be relatively stable because there is someone who always beside you. Different from having a best friend, having a “partner” will make you have a “home” to share all of your emotions.
4. Move On
Forgive the past and prepare your future, it is easy to say but hard to do. Some people, who have trauma in the past or some feeling that do not over yet, tend to have a wall that obstructs them to move on. But you try to move on or you will be trapped in the past.
5. Your Happiness is a Priority
It is a good thing if you make other people happy. But if you make people happy by sacrificing your happiness, it’s such a terrible nightmare for yourself. Put your happiness on the top of your priority. If you are not being treated the way you deserve, you should leave them. They do not deserve your kindness.
