Are you dealing with overwhelming emotions on a regular basis and you don’t know what to do about it? Do you often find yourself saying: “I feel overwhelmed by life." If this sounds like you, it's time you master your emotions. In this video, I’m going to reveal why you’re feeling overwhelmed and what you can do about it to feel more confident and in control.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your emotions, let me start off by saying you are not alone. The truth is, there are too many people who struggle with how to cope with their emotions. Even I struggled with emotions for a long time and wondered why do I feel overwhelmed all the time? If this sounds like you, here’s why:
When it comes to emotions, most people don’t have a clue how to respond because no one taught them about emotions. This is one of those topics that the school system and parents usually don’t teach their children very well.
So when difficult and painful emotions arise, such as sadness, anger, shame, guilt and fear, the default response is usually to turn away from our emotions because you likely feel bad inside. And when you feel bad, you want to find a way to feel good again. Avoiding emotions seems like the easiest way to do so.
The problem with this is that emotions don’t just go away because you’re avoiding them. They stay in your body and accumulate overtime and eventually overwhelm you.
So if you find yourself saying: “I feel overwhelmed by my emotions”, it’s simply because you’re disconnecting from them. This means that in order to deal with the overwhelm, you’re going to have to face and connect with your emotions.
