I love the idea of how labelling your emotions can be very beneficial to how you manage them. I find it interesting as I was just talking with my cousin this morning about exactly that. She was saying her mother finds it really amazing that my cousin can identify when she’s feeling anxious, she can talk about it, and she can find a resolution. My cousin and I talked about how our parents somewhat find that a foreign concept. The ability it acknowledge our negative emotions, speak about them, and then resolve them - rather than channel them through anger towards an innocent (as we discussed, this is what our parents often do). Finding a healthy relationship between our emotions and reactions is extremely important. This may be a blunt way to put it and I’m sure there is definitely a better way, but I often say “you cannot control anything in this world except for how you react”. Meaning: if something bad happens, and you feel negative about it, it’s okay to feel negative about it, but however you react will determine what happens next.
Good day everyone 😁❤️
