Our lives are filled with emotional moments of all kinds from sad to happy.
We know how important it is to be able to express our emotions. With a high self-knowledge we can handle our emotions without being disturbed or disturbing others.
When are emotions disturbing? The answer is simple: when we lose control. These are moments when we get worked up and negatively affected by our emotions.
Now let’s imagine we feel esteemed and therefore happy. We can’t get worked up anymore. Esteem is like magic because it makes us patient, calm and understanding. All these attitudes prevent us from being worked up. If we get esteem or give esteem we create an atmosphere of understanding and this stops us being worked up.
When we’re tempted toward those negative emotions, let’s just think for a moment that it’s always us deciding to lose control. We’ll realize that being worked up doesn’t help us and anybody else. With that we bring esteem into the moment and give ourselves and the people around us the chance to express true emotions.
