The ability to feel and express emotions is more important than you would imagine. Because emotions are the felt response to a situation, they are crucial in your reactions. You have access to vital information that assists decision-making, relationship success, day-to-day interactions, and self-care when you’re tuned in to them. While emotions can be beneficial in everyday life, they can have a severe impact on your mental health and interpersonal relationships when they are out of control. Any positive emotion, such as exhilaration, happiness, and others, might intensify to the point that it becomes impossible to control. However, with a little practice, you can recover control. Having great emotional control abilities is linked to happiness, according to two studies. Furthermore, the second found a plausible link between these qualities and financial success, implying that putting in some effort there could pay off well. It isn’t necessarily a terrible thing to have strong feelings. Emotions bring variety, excitement, and brightness to our lives. Strong emotions suggest that we are fully immersed in life and are not repressing our inherent instincts. It’s quite natural to feel emotionally overwhelmed from time to time—when good things happen, when horrible things happen, when you feel left out. So, how can you know when something isn’t right? Conflict in relationships or friendships, trouble relating to others, issues at work or school, a desire to use substances to help manage your emotions, and physical or emotional outbursts are all instances of emotions that frequently get out of hand. Take a look at how your out-of-control emotions are affecting your day-to-day life. This will make locating issue spots a lot easier (and track your success). You can’t turn up the volume on your feelings (if only it were that easy!). Consider how you might be able to control your emotions in this way. It’s not a good idea to leave them on full power all the time. You wouldn’t want to entirely turn them off, either. When you suppress or repress emotions, you hinder yourself from experiencing and expressing them.
