How important is it to express our emotions?
Declutter yourself, express yourself to improve the situation at hand not to worsen it.
It’s about mutual understanding not
imposing your emotions onto someone else.
Express gently even if feeling overwhelmed. Know when to stop. Over expressing kills the essence. Point is to convey the basic feeling not to exaggerate and overplay.
If you feel someone cannot understand your emotions, save it for a better purpose. Channelize your emotions towards a positive cause. When you express, ensure your emotions get the value they deserve else you’re better off without showcasing them. Show anger in the form of enthusiasm for a new project that you can work on. Redirect uncontrollable emotions towards things that breed positivity.
Affirm positive thoughts when you’re fuming.
Say, I am calm and a composed person when anger is trying to get the better off you. Never repress emotions as they tend to linger on for a long time. When an emotion lies unexpressed, it can explode at an uncertain time and unfavourable situation. Emotions are meant to be diffused else they override you.
They are like joker in a pack of cards. Sometimes they are of significant value and relevant. Whereas they can be misplaced during some difficulties. So the key is to know where to show and where to conceal them.
A joker is always smiling even its kept face down. Similarly our emotions may go dormant if we disguise it under a forced smile all the time. What if you had to smile even when you are feeling low ?
Emotions can become an e-joker when left unattended.
They exist for a reason. Show them but in a right way that seems assertive and not repulsive.
