I know the feeling. I have the same issues sometimes.

Default Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

Right now I am having a hard time keeping my emotions at bay. I used to be able to go my usual business but now it's like my emotions are at overdrive that it's making it difficult for me to focus on the things that make me happy. Any advice for how I can better get back on track? thanks

My emotions seem to try to get the better of me so I just cut them off completely and go numb. I know thats not the was to handle my emotions but I don't know what else to do before my emotions would break me down completely.

HOW Courtney? Are you feeling? Are you numb? What is your fear? Did something happen to initiate you needing help or were you feeling bad void of any certain cause? I would help if I could -- I can be someone that cares how you are doing. Help me to help you by expressing more...

I think that going numb is sometimes our last resort for survival and that it has to be okay when that's all we can do. I struggle with being able to control or contain my emotions which does not always involve how I interact with others -- sometimes it's just about how I am with myself and the busy thoughts that I am consumed by. Mostly that I am too much for people. Too sensitive, too emotional, too dramatic, too passionate. I don't want to be anything to the extent of being "too much" so much so that others don't really know how to deal with me. I don't know where I'm going with what I have said. My intent was to respond in a hopefully helpful way to your message. Mostly, I guess I would say not to be hard on yourself when you feel the only option for dealing with your emotions is to go numb. If it gets you through then it must be okay. And when it feels safe enough to feel again maybe it would be a good idea to try to identify and understand the emotions that left you overcome. And if you feel ready, try to explore finding the simple hows and whys of your emotions. Hopefully, in such a way that you would come away knowing more and being less vulnerable to your emotions. This is something I should apply to my own experiences. I hope that what I've said makes sense.

It's been a while since I felt intensely sad. It was an exquisitely beautiful experience. I was grieving over the suicide of a friend.
I very much enjoyed the feeling of sadness, it was transporting, transforming, and very relaxing. At times my breath slowed to almost seeming to stop, music became profound, infinity seemed to pour in from some kind of absolute stillness.
I reveled in it and concentrated often to linger in the emotion as much as I could.
Alas, I cannot conjure up these states at will , they have a life of their own, eventually my long term sadness passed.

That seems to be the general rule ,ie the more one accepts and loves one's negative emotions the less likely they are to stay and the more one runs form them the more power they get. But 'mother psychology' cannot be tricked, if she senses you are trying to enjoy the emotions to make them go away then she she will bring them back in force. 'Mother psychology' always demands absolute honesty.


To my understanding, there is the emotion which is inside me and part of me, as I have accepted these emotions I love their expression and there is the external event the loss of a friend which is outside of me and the pain is my consciousness of it. So perhaps the sadness is the buffer between, a soothing of the external destructive event to the internal of me.
In any case the emotions, and this emotion is me, it is myself and as I love and accept myself ( an ongoing process which has been progressive) I love all my emotions without reservation. It takes a while though to learn this, and not everyone want to do so. But the choice to progress towards acceptance is always there.

Thanks for sharing. I am sorry for the loss of your friend, but, was touched by what you had to say, It would be good for me to make the choice to "progress towards acceptance" (as you say) of my emotions. Instead of embracing my emotions I am often frightened or controlled by them, which is a difficult path to walk at times.

Trig Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

It seems as if all I feel is anger and sad i dont really remember what "true" happy feels like... And my anger is scary bad I punch things,(to the point of breaking my hand a few times) I yell and scream, and even hurt myself in the past just to get it out (cut myself, bit myself)... It is like no matter how many time I punch something or no matter how loud I yell I cant get out my anger.....And I dont know what to do but I cant keep doing this.... And its like NO MATTER WHAT I cant find something or someone that gets me mad... My boyfriend tells me that its is ok cause I have had a hard life, I have seen and gone thru alot of things that i have never dealt with.. And then when i told my counseler what he said she said he was right and It is ok cause i have never hurt anyone else??? I dont understand this I what/need to change.. And Nobody well help my by telling my what to do and how to change.. And then on top of the anger i already had this got me os mad that I left counseling half way thru but not befor I lost is on her.. Yelling "I dont give a **** cause i could and alot of people have had thing happen to them and they have not turned out crazy and hating the world".. And i know she didnt do anything but I am NOT ready to deal with the things from when i was younger i cant change them but i am wanting to fix the things i can change but i dont know how to even start....
