Control Your Emotions

Control your emotions doesn’t mean avoid your emotions.  Feel your stuff, understand your stuff, but don’t loose your stuff.  There will be days when you don’t feel like putting on the fake smile and the fake, happy go lucky demeanor so that you can engage with others because that’s the expectation of you with work, being a parent, a friend, and other hats that you may wear.  It’s equally, if not more, important for you to embrace every emotion that you are feeling.  Transition in life can be hard.  Divorces can be hard.  Marriage can be hard.  Parenting can be hard.  Working can be hard.  Life can be hard.  As you are feeling different emotions be sure that you:

1.Take inventory on what you’re feeling

2. Identify what transpired prior to you having that particular emotion

3. Express those emotion(s) appropriately

4. Imagine what you are wanting to feel and what actions you are needing going forward

5. Reflect

Talk with you next time.
