It actually sounds normal and healthy. If you try to teach yourself how not to get emotional, I promise that it will be worse in the long run. You can do it. With enough practice it is possible to shut off an emotional response. I learned how to stop getting upset and crying in the moment. The rebound effect from trying not to feel your emotions in the moment is a lot worse than just dealing with it in the moment. Believe me. Most people who end up with seriously self destructive coping mechanisms (drinking, dr.ugs, self harm, overeating, anorexia, bulimia, reckless driving) are trying desperately not to feel. It's ok to cry. It doesnt make you weak, it doesn't make you an emotional teenager, it just means you're experiencing your emotions. Good for you. Your emotions are there for a reason. You should deal with them. It's a good thing.
depends on what they are. lets get one thing straight first of all, just because youre 17 and youre problem may be i lost my purse, not i ruined america's economy, doesnt mean its not important. second it all depends on what youre talking about, its ok to have emotions and to sho them but there is a thin line to walk. dont bottle up your emotions, always let them out, but that doesnt mean whine or have a temper tantrum. if you dont want to have people see that youre emotional i suggest going into a private place, your bedroom or if your away from home, a bathroom, and let it all out, because bottling up can have very bad side effects.
I dont get it, why do people now, try to cry less, or to stop feeling things? There is nothing wrong with feeling sad, or angry, or whatever about it. Each and every single pearson can have different reactions to something. You dont need to stop feeling the way you feel just because someone else has a problem with it. If homeless puppy makes you feel sad or happy or angry, or whatever then go ahead and feel like that, its about you.
Be open about your emotional situations. Let your close friends know what's going on, have some family members to talk to. It always helps to tell people how you feel, and not keep it inside. Realize that you're young, and that you have a lot more things to worry about than boys, and appearance.
I'm not an emotional wreck or anything like that. It just gets annoying when I'm getting into an argument with my family how I end up crying or how when I get really angry I start crying. I just want to learn how not to do that. But thank you for the advice :)
oh then for that matter when it gets to the point you feel like crying just walk away and say you need a break to calm down. i know what that feels like, just walk away, calm don, and think things through.
yes,just be quick to hear and slow to speak.
