How do you avoid a build-up of negative emotions? - Edition 24


Remember the times you experienced a spectrum of negative emotions? They range from mild annoyance to resentment to anger to extreme desperation. Then you tried to ignore those feelings and run away from them.

Well, Daniel Rees Morgan, The Fulfilment Coach said, it's like a postman who keeps delivering messages to you. He keeps putting it in your mailbox day after day. If you don't do a regular check to see what these messages are, there comes D-day where your mailbox is close to bursting. Similarly, those emotions will keep piling up inside of you until one day, you snap out of control.

How do you handle negative emotion?

Well, for starters, there is no such thing as a negative emotion. On my recent Facebook Live conversation with Daniel Morgan, The Fulfillment Coach, he says to STOP thinking on those terms. He says every emotion has a message for you and is positive at the right time. Every emotion is there to help you. And when you’re experiencing an emotion that you’re not comfortable with, it has a message for you.

You have to accept that message and say, "Okay, let’s just feel that emotion.
Let’s see what this message has for me. Just allow it to be in your body." And ask yourself, what’s the message here? What do I need to learn? If you take on board that message and you accept it, the emotion will last for maybe a few minutes and will pass in its own time.

But on the other hand, if you’re not accepting the message or not learning from it, that postman will keep putting that message in your mailbox until it is filled to the brim.

So don’t deny it.
Allow it to be.
Feel the emotion.
Learn and grow from it.
