As a child we are never taught the importance of Emotional well-being, so as a consequence we suffer. Handling emotions isn’t easy; it can lead to many not so good actions even in adulthood. Emotions are powerful, once you’re trapped, it takes a lot of time to come back and heal. Emotional breakdown or imbalance actually causes much more damage to the body and mind than a physical wound. A physical wound will hurt for some time and heal but emotional imbalance within won’t settle on its own, it will come to the surface again and again till the time you finally decide to eradicate it completely. Everyone on this planet should at least know how to live an emotionally, physiologically and psychologically well balanced life. It can be self taught. Emotional well being is keeping a check on emotions from time to time or giving attention to whatever that comes to the surface from within.
If you would have asked anyone about Emotional Well-Being few decades ago, people would have given a strange look. Even in today’s time this topic is rarely discussed and is given the least importance anywhere you go, because for majority of the people only the outside world exists.
There is absolutely no need according to them to go within and check on how emotionally balanced they are. It is a waste of time for people because time is money and it is ticking away right? All attention is given to all kinds of nonsense in the world but no time to just sit for a bit and check on yourself or someone in need. People are emotionally damaged and they don’t even know. They go through the roller coasters every now and then and tend to believe this is how it is supposed to be. It’s like living in a box or a cycle without even knowing how disturbed you are, unaware of the potential and infinite possibilities.
The reason why this topic is rarely discussed in society is that nobody knows how to tackle it, the people in the society aren’t aware themselves of the cause and the effect. If you’d ask someone anything of the outside world, they can speak nonstop without break! On the other hand if you’d ask someone about emotional well-being and other aspects of life, you’d witness nothing but a blank face. Lack of knowledge and awareness leads to ignorance and ignorance is evil.
There are numerous ways to keep in check of your emotions. Personally I recommend meditation. There is this false notion in the world about what meditation is. People think they have to focus on something intensely when meditating. However, meditation is just being aware of what’s happening inside and confronting that comes to the surface without judgment or attaching yourself to it. Some people check on themselves by maintaining a daily journal. For some, they like to talk with a friend or family member. Going to a therapist is a good way to keep a check when you feel things are slipping out of hands.
Taking a professional help doesn’t mean you’re crazy! It simply means you’re fortunate enough to understand something is off inside and you’re working to get rid of it.
NOW is always the best time to take charge of your emotions and understand how essential it is to live a well balanced life. Living a peaceful and well balanced life in all the aspects is the real treasure one can attain. Other than that, all success is nothing but a mere drama in the outside world.
