When something negative happens in our lives, it can be difficult to get back to our old selves. Our emotions might feel out of balance, and we may not know how to restore them. This can be a challenge for both ourselves and the people around us. This blog post will discuss six questions that you can ask yourself to get balanced emotions.
1) How do I feel right now?
Try to be honest with yourself about how you are feeling. It’s okay if it’s not good! If you aren’t sure, try writing down some words that describe your emotions or what they might look like on a scale from 0 (none) to 100 (maximum).
2) What is causing these feelings?
Try to pinpoint what the cause of your negative emotions might be. It will help identify a specific thing, person, or event that triggered them for you to process it more easily later on. If possible, write down some notes about where your emotions came from so that this information doesn’t get lost.
If you are struggling to identify the cause of your emotions, it might be helpful to do some journaling about what has been going on in your life recently or even further back. Sometimes our feelings can be linked to things that have happened in the past, but we haven’t processed yet.
3) How can I change this situation?
Think about what you can do to improve your current circumstances. For example, if there is something out of your control (like someone else’s actions or a natural disaster), then focus on how you might cope better with it by using coping skills such as deep breathing exercises, meditating, and doing yoga poses.
If there is something that you can change, make a plan of action and put it into effect. It’s important to be realistic with what you can do and have short-term and long-term goals. Breaking down your goal into manageable tasks will help make it feel less daunting.
4) What do I need to forgive myself for?
This can be a difficult question to answer, but it is important. Maybe you feel like you are always angry or stressed out, and this is causing your negative emotions. If this is the case, try forgiving yourself for not being perfect. Nobody is perfect, and we all make mistakes.
5) What do I need to forgive others for?
Forgiving others is just as important as forgiving ourselves. For example, maybe you feel like somebody has wronged you, causing negative emotions. If this is the case, try writing a letter to that person explaining how you feel and why.
6) What can I do to restore my emotional balance?
Now that you’ve forgiven yourself and others, it is time to find ways of restoring your emotional balance. For example, maybe some activities or hobbies made you happy, but now they don’t anymore. If this is the case, try doing these activities again and see if they bring back positive feelings.
In conclusion, restoring your emotional balance can be difficult, but it is not impossible. By asking yourself the six questions listed in this blog post, you will be on your way to finding peace and happiness once again.
