6 Ways Being An Emotional Person Is A Blessing In Disguise

5. Being emotionally expressive helps you in better emotional regulation.

How we regulate our everyday emotions defines how mentally healthy we are. People who fail to experience and express their genuine emotions regulated them through maladaptive techniques of emotional downplay, suppression, avoidance, and masking. Unfortunately, those emotions do not go down the gutter.

They are simply pushed to the unconsciousness and will come back in dangerous shape.

People who fail to use their emotional intelligence skills are more likely to turn to other, less effective means of managing their mood. They are twice as likely to experience anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and even thoughts of suicide. – Travis Bradberry

People who feel deeply, embrace their true emotions, freely express them, without the need to be conscious about other’s approval are doing a great job. 

They are regulating their emotions, however negative it is, through the articulation of them.

 

6. Emotions impart important knowledge about ourselves

Our emotions are great teachers. Our emotional expressions often open the gate to or inner self. When you are overcome with some emotions at some particular point, it provides you an opportunity to be aware of how you function. 

The goal here is to acknowledge your emotions, instead of denying them. These might help you achieve useful insights regarding your innermost desires, wishes, and needs which might be holding you back from winning at life. 

Suppose you are overcome with intense anger and frustrations in specific situations. Don’t ignore it. It’s a sign that you need to work on your deepest insecurities, fears, and conflicts that might be underlying the emotional manifestation.

One little confession: Currently, I am in my adulthood, and people haven’t yet stopped calling me an “emotional fool”. But I would rather be an emotional fool than feel nothing at all.

Embrace your special power to feel.
