What do you do when that moment comes when the hammer just dropped on your toe… do you scream out, curse, hit the wall or simply ignore the pain and keep in control? Here are some thoughts on the subject:
Isn't it subjective, I have feelings about things, but emotions about people. I feel for animals, collecting, books, objects.
But I have emotions toward people, I feel these emotions, but they don't control me anymore. I am bypolor, I have good days and bad, I take meds for it. I used to get upset over anything, loose control. I would yell or cry or just go nuts. But now I am in control, emotions can be controlled. Feelings are less tenuous, they don't need that level of control.
The emotions we feel may shape what we see. Our emotional state in a given moment may influence what we see, according to new findings. In two experiments, researchers found that participants saw a neutral face as smiling more when it was paired with an unseen positive image. Source 5q.
When something like that happens I just take control of my anger and go for a walk. I would pray to god and ask him to help me. I would also listen to music. I would not scream or say bad words.
