Default Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

this is wonderful..I have been battling emotions so long. I recognize that they are just that, emotions, and I can control and steer their reality by my thought life but I know emotions have a purpose too but I struggle with the balance.

If you are a teenager it may just be part of puberty. Hope you feel better soon.

Emotional Intelligence is the one thing everyone should strive for in their lives. Being able to name them, feel them, monitor, and cope with emotions is key to self awareness and growth.

Isn't it possible that someone might be better off taking their own life? If one is tired and has no hope and has tried therapy and has lived and has nothing to which to look forward and life is just drudgery - worse: constant, unremitting pain?

Personally - I think that taking your own life is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I would suggest talking to your T and/or pdoc and letting them know just how you feel.

I've generally felt this way for many years now.
However, I keep coming back to only ONE answer: keep trying.
Whether you believe it or not, I think you're doing exactly that by reaching out here.

I hope today brings you a bit more hope.

lovEternal - I googled my user name and didn't come up with anything linking me back to this site. You may want to post this question in the technical support thread.

Hi there, I'm not sure if you've gotten this question answered or not. This is a public forum, if you google psych central you can get here and to the forums. You do not need a username to see these posts.

If I type into google "Psych Central Coping with emotions" I can get to this subforum, but if I type in your user name additionally it does not go to your profile. For someone to see what you've written here they'd have to know your username. Hope this helps. The previous poster was right there's also another section of the forums in which these questions are normally answered, and you can always PM a moderator or admin with any questions.

Help Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

I am in a rough place. I don't think I've had many safe times to express emotions--I've usually been told some form of 'you shouldn't feel that', especially when it's an emotion such as anger or upset.

What can I do for this?
