NEGATIVE EMOTIONS, EITHER THEY ARE DOING YOU, OR YOU ARE DOING THEM
Kim E. Baccigaluppi
MYTH: "If I just ignore the problem or push the feelings down, I can be more productive and get back to life." It's a common belief that feeling emotions is weakness and NOT feeling them is strength. The opposite is true. It takes wisdom, strength, perseverance and emotional wisdom and sustenance to effectively manage your negative emotions.
SYMPTOMS OF SUPPRESSED NEGATIVE EMOTIONS
Scientific literature links suppressed negative emotions and physical health problems.
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL REACTIVITY?
When stressed, angry, or hurt, we tend to react impulsively. Lashing out toward self or others is emotional reactivity. Various triggers can cause emotional reactivity, along with unmet emotional needs and suppressed negative emotions. During the moments of reactivity, one loses the ability to think clearly and one is likely to say or do hurtful and destructive things causing regret. Perceptions are altered and logic and reality becomes blurred. It becomes impossible to listen and communicate effectively and build healthy relationships. Emotions and defenses drive behaviors; one's self-esteem suffers.
Hypnotherapy uncovers the underlying causes of behavior and taps into the root of emotional distress.
Whether you are a parent, colleague, friend or family member, emotional reactivity hurts any and all connections. It will dissolve trust in an instant and put others on the defensive. The fallout from reactivity can be devastating. Resolving your reactivity will undoubtedly change your life.
