How to Deal with Negative Emotions

To give vent now and then to his feelings, whether of pleasure or discontent, is a great ease to a man’s heart.  ~Francesco Guicciardini

Today I will tell you that sometimes, you gotta let it out – all the emotion, I mean. 

Whether that’s a good cry, a private rant, a lengthy journal post (which I do quite often), or a flat-out run around the block, get it out.

Of course, you want to do it in private – no sense subjecting anyone  else to your  emotional break-down.

Then, when you’re done, as the song goes, “pick yourself up, dust  yourself off, and start all over again.”

Feelings can be overwhelming – we reach peaks of happiness and depths of despair. Learning to take the edges off – to become less volatile and more ‘even keeled’ as the saying goes, is a sign of maturity.
