Most of us are challenged by difficult emotions; either pushing them down or acting out of them. This talk gives a way of working with difficult emotions that comes from observing how cows and buffalo approach storms.

Difficult emotions
I need to recognize a difficult emotion and move toward it and work through it instead of lashing out or avoiding. Got to be a Buffalo!

Norman Vincent Peale’s version of this story is one of my favorites. It may be counter-intuitive to face problems head on, but it is an excellent idea to do so. Airplanes takeoff into the wind to use it to their advantage. I believe when we overcome a “problem” we somehow gain the Energy that was wrapped up & hidden in it. This helps me have the courage to face and work thru the problem now instead of ignoring it and hoping it will go away. It may temporarily, but it will be back & it will have gained momentum & size and will be more difficult to overcome and may actually take more energy to solve than it gives us. Emotions are somewhat similar. They want to be recognized so we should face them & acknowledge them. Many times they just want to be heard, felt & experienced. And there is a lesson in them as our reward. Other times they are a warning and maybe we need to listen to them & adjust course. Wisdom is knowing the difference.
Dealing with anger
Do not avoid, and do not lash out. Communicate, and if the other person is not willing to do so, you can acknowledge and be proud you acted in a mature manner and move on from the negativity.
I learned that I can determine how my day goes and how others affect me! I am definitely going to try this throughout my day and see how this helps. I am confident it will make a difference and very excited to try it out.
Emotions can be difficult. And very disconcerting at times. But they are so Important. When we feel something it drives us to do something. But sometimes if we act with too much emotion it can ruin things. I love this racing your emotionshead on.
It is salient to acknowledge what true knowledge means, don’t merely consume until one’s cup is full. Go out there and flush it all the way and see if there is a possibility of acquiring it again
Face them demons
Instead of turning away from what you feel or what you’re going through, its easier when you just face it. It’s the fastest way to resolve it.
Face it
dealing with difficult emotions, dont run , avoid, face it through and come out of it onvthe other side
Turn towards the emotion
Face your fears, go into a situation that makes you uncomfortable - meet it head on and you may be able to influence the outcome more than you realize.
Dealing with difficult emotions
What a wonderful insightful example of dealing with adversity.
I noticed
I have in life been pretty good at dealing with emotions. During my teenage year I was definitely reactive instead of responsive and as of late with my declined mental state this past year I have found myself agin in that state of reactive not responding. I’m finding my way again.
