Emotional triggers often have roots in past experiences and memories. Understanding our emotional triggers can be incredibly powerful and help us take control of our lives. Understanding our triggers and their roots, reprogramming negative beliefs, and practicing self-compassion, we can learn to respond instead of react and achieve emotional mastery.
Have you ever been in a relationship with someone who uses fear, obligation, or guilt to manipulate you into doing what they want? Those who are most vulnerable to emotional blackmail are typically people pleasers or empathetic individuals who are easy to manipulate. The quality of our life depends on the quality of our relationships, both with ourselves and others.
When you’re at a high point in your life and then suddenly find yourself at a low, it can feel like you have to reinvent yourself completely. It can be difficult to find your footing again, and sometimes it can feel like there’s no way out. It’s important to try to remind yourself that it’s only like this for now.
We all want to be surrounded by inspiring people. People who are confident and excited about life and the things that they’re doing – people who, in turn, elevate and inspire us to see a world full of possibilities. So how do we ensure we have people like that in our lives?
Feeling down is part of life. Overcoming internal struggle starts with the ability to process our emotions and life experiences. Remember that it’s okay to need help.
Don’t feel ashamed because you need help. When feeling low, you need to understand that needing help doesn’t make you weak. Make a difference by providing support or mentoring those who need help.
Everyone we meet is going through something we don’t know about or understand. Sometimes all people need is someone willing to hold space for them and just listen. By simply being there, listening, and being available, you will help those who need you. Focus on the overall situation and how you can impact it by being there.
