Understanding your emotions and controlling, managing and responding to them correctly will help us get through life more easier.
Emotional response aren't bad. They prove that we are human and that our brains are functioning properly.
But mismanaged our feelings is wrong.
It happens when we give the incorrect emotional response. To feel sad without reason, when in fact we should feel happy. It means that we are not aware of our feelings. We might be so attached to the feeling of loneliness that we could no longer recognize happy situations and respond properly when we encounter one.
When we swallow in our negative mood for a long time. To feel anger, to be frustrated,saddened or grieved is normal. What is not normal is when we allow that feeling to take hold of you longer than what is necessary. The Bible says that we should not let the sun go down on our anger.
When we try to drown it out the wrong way. There are some people who do not acknowledge their feelings and who want to get rid of them immediately. To do this, they get drunk or take drugs. This is escapism and is useless. When they wake up from their stupor, they are still in the same situation. By using alcohol and drugs, they just irresponsibly destroy their bodies.
What will we lose if we mismanage our moods?
We lose precious time. Brooding takes time, and when we do, we don't get to do anything else. We lose our energy. Feeding an emotion eats up our strength thus making us less productive. We don't have the motivation to work and can't work because of mental and emotional fatigue. We lose direction to. We tend to forget that we have a purpose for our life. Mishandled moods make us blind to what we have to do because it focuses our mind on what is wrong. We lose touch, since we're focusing on ourselves, we block out friends. Self pity drives away company. We even lose confidence in ourself. We lose self assurance since we become afraid to once again move on. And lastly We lose our health. Some unhealthful effects of mismanaged moods are insomnia, headaches, hypertension, heart problems, stomach problems, backaches, skin rashes,migraines,nervousness and ulcers. Imagine that bad effects not good to us really.
To avoid that, we should manage our moods properly.
We should analyze our feelings. Our moods come out based on how our brain analyzes the situations we are in. Sometimes the assumptions our brain makes are not correct. When we feel bitter toward a certain person for example, we should first ask ourself whether it is right to feel bitter. Second, we should ask whether it is right to feel bitter towards that person. You be misdirecting your bitterness. Third, we should also find out whether the person you feel bitter toward is really at fault. He or she might have an explanation. We therefore have to gather more information and get the facts straight first. The emotion you're feeling might be out of hand.
We need to breathe it out. No, don't ventilate it. Share what you've feeling with your parents or with a caring friend. The feeling of having someone empathize with you might help you get rid of that emotion fast. This is what you need friends for. What's more, voicing out what you feel helps you evaluate what you feel too.
We should create a happy atmosphere also. When we feel lonely, then don't listen to sad music and shut ourself in our room with the lights off. This creates much more depressing mood. And don't watch those telenovelas where all the characters do is cry. Go out and have fun. Call or visit a friend. Let's give ourself a treat.
We need also to decipline our thoughts. Sometimes worry is caused by an overly productive imagination. The person thinks up the worst possible things that could happen and worries about them. Often, these worries are Baseless.
We should Entrust Everything to God. No matter what state of mind we are in, there will always be a God who understands you and who has the power to change your situation. And He has asked you to cast your burdens on Him. Isn't this a great privilege.
Let's Fix it up. Don't wait for your mood to go away. Make it go away. Sometimes, this call for a decisive action. Are you frustrated with your performance? Then start doing your best now. If you angry with your friends, then call him or her up now, reconcile offenses, be willing to forgive. If you worried of a mistake you made, then correct that mistake or ask for the help of someone who can.
Therefore I conclude that mood management is acknowledging the biological antecedents and value of emotions such as sadness and anxiety, and the possibility that ‘ordinary’ sadness and anxiety may now be over-diagnosed as disorders and over-medicalised, we must not forget that we are dealing with a spectrum of severity. Thus, far from being ordinary, major depression is an extreme form of sadness. A Patients, who live with depression, their family and friends, have enormous challenges to overcome. Primary care physicians can provide compassionate care, important education, psychiatric monitoring, social support, reassurance, and advocacy for these patients and their loved ones.
Do not let this situation affect you, remember the ability to manage your moods correctly helps you make a success out of living.
