3 Ways to Respect Your Own Emotions

(HappierDaily.com) – What do you do when emotions hit you full force?

Feelings like happiness, sadness, fear, and anger make us human, and we should learn to accept and embrace them if we want to live our lives to the fullest. Your emotions are a part of you, but if you’re like so many of us, you likely push the way you feel aside in order to appease others. Respect them instead and watch how your life experiences change.

Understand That Your Feelings are Normal

Anger and sadness may hurt, but without them, joy and love wouldn’t mean so much. When you feel emotions arise, allow yourself to process them. Your feelings are real, understandable and nothing to be ashamed about or afraid of.

2 Things That Used To Block My Happiness Every Day

Sometimes you just need to cry. If you’re upset or stressed out, you can be tempted to ball it up inside yourself to stay strong. This might actually be doing more emotional and physical harm than good. A good cry won’t solve the underlying problem, but processing your situation from an emotional level will help to clear your head later on. Crying also releases some stress hormones, like cortisol, to give you a physical release as well.

Know Your Limits

If someone wants you to do something that is beyond your capabilities or against your values, you can walk away. The people in your life who care about you will likely recognize your respect for your own feelings and in turn respect your choices.

Letting yourself really feel your feelings helps you to become more authentic and, in the long run, allows you to feel your best. Happiness starts with following your heart. Your feelings have value, so express them.

There’s more room out in the world for your feelings than in that little body of yours. Let them out.
