Some years ago, I broke down emotionally. Are you surprised? Don’t be; even thought leaders and life coaches like me break down, too.
Nothing awful actually happened that day; just that I became emotionally labile — my emotional state became unbalanced.
I started feeling like I wasn’t getting enough results I desire. And within a short while, I started fixating on everything I don’t have at the moment, so much that and I forgot about everything I have which I know many people are praying for.
If you have been in this state before, you probably understand what I am talking about by now, and even if you haven’t, I believe you can imagine the kind of emotional state that feeling can lead one to.
But God has a way of always helping me in such times. So, He made me see a movie that day which turned out to be the solution I needed.
The movie depicted everything I was actually going through at the moment and I was able to glean important lessons from it. I won’t like to bother you with details of what the movie was about, but that was how I got back my emotional balance.
You see, there are various lessons I want to share in this piece but I will limit them to few. First, I want you to know that no one is exempt from breaking down in life.
Even if you are a master of Emotional Intelligence, you can still fall into depression. Take note of this.
Secondly, many times we find it difficult to manage our state, it’s most likely as a result of the fact that we lose sight of what we have and fixate on those things we don’t have. What this does to our emotional state is that it gets us depressed and feeling anxious.
However, when we learn to fix our minds on those things we have, we will be very grateful and we will always be confident that we’ll come to have those things in time.
Another important lesson that I want you to learn from reading this piece is this: because you have fallen into one difficult emotional state or the other doesn’t mean you are weak or you cannot get back up again.
Many of the people you admire today have sometime been in a difficult emotional state, so don’t crucify yourself or give up when you fall into this state. Remember that it’s not unique to you.
If I should type it to the whole world that very day that I was emotionally down people would find it difficult to believe because things were still going well on the surface for me, but the truth was that, I was actually down.
So don’t be too hard on yourself whenever you are going through one stuff or the other. Instead, understand that it’s a stage and whatever stage you are now, it will pass.
Whatever maybe what you are going through will definitely pass. This piece is already getting too long. So let me just end it with one more important point.
The outcome of our lives is based on the quality of the questions we ask ourselves per time. We are constantly asking ourselves questions. Hence, we must endeavor to ask ourselves the right questions per time.
So when you are going through difficult times or through an emotional pressure, stop asking yourself questions that will get you further depressed. Instead, ask yourself questions that will help you get out of the state.
It’s another beautiful day of the week and I wish you success. If you want me to further help you closely, feel free to reach out to me.
