Emotions are a person’s main way of self-expression. They cannot be suppressed, but one must learn to control them, because very often our emotions are deceiving and lead us in the wrong direction.
There are certain destructive emotions that prevent us from looking at things objectively and lead to conflicting decisions.
Here are some scientific facts about emotions:
These 5 emotions can bring you out of balance and lead to actions that you will later regret:
The main reason for resentment is low self-esteem and a person’s self-doubt. Sometimes we overreact to the words of other people, projecting our own self-doubts.
It's hard to live with grievances around others - a lot of energy is spent on it. If you have resentment towards others, then you must first deal with yourself.
With proper management and awareness of this emotion, you can turn it to benefit, for example, in the desire to work on yourself and achieve what someone else has. But most often, envy is a depreciation of one’s own life.
By comparing with others and envying them, people simply don’t notice good things in their life. Envy blocks the expression of gratitude, which is of great importance for a harmonious and happy life.
Anger leads to emotional devastation. It is like an explosion at a nuclear power plant - a big burst of energy, an explosion and a wave that hits everything in the immediate radius. In order to prevent this "explosion", you need to learn to control your emotions without suppressing or accumulating negativity in yourself.
Intense practices and physical activity, as well as any dynamic meditation can help to cope with anger.
This emotion is closely related to envy. For some reason, people tend to rejoice at failures and mistakes of other people. But if you think better about it, will it bring you real joy that someone didn’t succeed?
You cannot be happy in the circle of the unfortunate people. By rejoicing at the failures of others, we draw the same failures into our lives.
Fear prevents us from living fully, acting and manifesting ourselves in this world. It prevents us from getting what we really want from life - relationships, careers, self-expression. Fear is the basis for most negative and destructive emotions.
Envy, resentment against the whole world, and gloating are born in fear. Fear destroys the healthy part of our personality, which would like to create, love and just be happy.
We do not choose emotions, it is them choosing us, being a reaction to external factors. But we can learn to control them and manifest them consciously.
Science defines destructive emotions as an integral part of our behavior, but to a certain and limited extent. Buddhism speaks of them as obstacles that need to be fought on the path to happiness.
The best way to deal with destructive emotions is through positive emotions — anger can be transformed into compassion, resentment can become love, and envy can become gratitude.
Scientists confirm that positive thinking leads to an improvement in life and an increase in its quality.
