5 Ways You Can Overcome Your Emotional Sensitivity

Separate yourself from the emotion and you’ll find it really has no power over you. The reason you feel the pain is because you allow them to affect your psyche, thus unknowingly fueling your emotional sensitivity.


4. There’s Always A Speck Of Positivism, Find It

The Highly Sensitive Tend To Be Philosophical

We believe that every situation comes with a reason. But what we’re never taught is that every event, however negative, always comes with a speck of positivism. We just have to find it.

When faced with a negative situation that’s trying to trigger an unwanted emotion, try to find the reason behind its occurrence first. When you find the reason, see if it was something that has to do with your own actions.

Third, imagine what would have happened if things didn’t go that way. Things could have been worse. Look to the bright side. Acknowledge all the positives that are still with you. This will help you to reduce your emotional sensitivity.


5. Learn The Art Of Being Indifferent

Emotional sensitivity is fueled by caring too much about the circumstances and the effect they have on your mind. You have to learn how not to care about the happenings. For that, you need to realize how your self-worth outweighs any negativity that happens to cross your path.

You have to believe that your mental health is the most important thing, and that no emotion, however traumatizing, can dominate your will to preserve peace and contentment. You have to realize that your life is in your hands. Same with your emotions.

It is you, and you alone, who has the power to direct your emotions in the desired direction. Once this belief is inculcated deep in your heart, you’ll find the emotional sensitivity withering away.
