THE LIFE OF EMOTIONAL PEOPLE



:

As an emotional person, I am in a better position to say what life looks like for emotional people. 20% of the entire world population are highly emotional people. This has been proven by scientists. They are like that because of “SENSORY PROCESSING SENSITIVITY”. If you cry at movies, musics or when surprised, welcome to our world of OVER SENSITIVE SPECIES. Don’t worry your head over the reason why you are like that, don’t look for a cure because there is none… Just live with it! It’s not your fault, it’s your gene! Don’t hate that part of you, appreciate it!

:

If you are very emotional, nothing is wrong with you. Being emotional is part of your making… God made you like that and you cannot change anything about it! While it is healthy, at a point it can end up being detrimental. You should learn to manage your feelings so that it becomes your friend rather than your enemy! Emotional people are over sensitive and can even take a smile very serious.

I happen to be one among the 20% of the world’s population that are highly emotional.

:

Not being able to manage your emotions can lead to an unhappy, unhealthy and very lonely life! As someone who is very emotional, you ought to learn to strike a balance between your sensitivity and confidence. You should be very confident of yourself! One of the things that get at emotional people so badly is when they begin to feel inferior or rejected.

:

Even if you are not emotional, your can help emotional people by being sincere with them and by understanding that joking with their emotions can bring them down for a long time. If you really don’t love someone, don’t start pretending you do! An emotional person may get serious with you and become broken hearted at the end of the day. Sometimes it takes too much time for emotional people to overcome betrayals, heart breaks and all that! However, it becomes easier to get over it when they are either surrounded by caring friends or when they find a new love! 

:

Emotional people can be extremely caring but very much less expressive! They often build defence around themselves due to certain things they’ve experienced before. And when they build this defence, they take so much time to fully trust and commit themselves to someone. This is because they are afraid of experiencing another emotional trauma. They don’t easily express their feelings because they are afraid of “NO” or vulnerability which comes with opening up to someone.

:

While they find themselves learning how to do it, emotional people tend to become more social with you when they find solace in you. Are you emotional? Then, avoid walking alone, find yourself in the midst of friends and always talk away those things you nurse in your heart! By talking it out with friends, you are pouring out the accumulations that stucks and hurt in your heart!

:

Find time to exercise, be in social gathering and go out with friends… Be confident of who you are and never try changing yourself. While it is possible to master the art of regulating your emotions more effectively, you are naturally a sensitive person and you must learn to accept yourself. You can manage your emotions with practice but you can never be a different person. Never ever try becoming different!

:

Learn to praise yourself even when others make mess of your personality! Saying good stuffs about yourself reconditions your brain to think good about yourself! Most people think alcoholism will solve a thing, but it can only cause more damage! 

:

One more secret about emotional people is that sometimes they eat stuffs unnecessarily when they are lost in emotions! Why? Because they are looking for things to get themselves occupied with!

:

Emotional people hate the word “no” and sometimes they don’t say “no” either! They rather look for logics that can mean “no” but sometimes they are understood to have said “maybe”. Talking helps emotional people and so the best gift you can give to an emotional friend is talking to him or her about virtually everything! Emotional people values communications in friendship more than gifts! If you want to win the heart of an emotional person, you don’t need to buy great gifts… Just be available and prove your availablity! Because of their emotions, they would always love to talk to someone but not anyone.

:

Emotional people can become extremely dangerous or extremely weak when they act in the boiling of emotions. Some emotional persons can commit suicide too while they will never choose that option if they had allowed their emotions to cool down! To act right, an emotional person needs to give himself and be given a break. It is in the course of this break that they calm down to think. Emotional people always make wrong decisions when they are still boiling but they can be very thoughtful when they are allowed to cool down.

:

“I am sorry… Forgive me dear” works like a magic for emotional people. They might have wanted to take drastic actions but the moment you sincerely apologize, they have a tendency of forgiving you easily! Emotional people must learn to forgive themselves and let go of relationships that aren’t working!

:

While majority of emotional people are born like that, some became over sensitive because of depression. Such persons needs a professional help! To handle your emotions perfectly, you should be patient with yourself and you must understand that it’s a part of you that can only manage.
