Why You’re Feeling Emotional
Everyone goes through times in their life where they end up feeling emotional. Sometimes, there’s a clear reason for the emotions you’re feeling, while other times there doesn’t seem to be a cause. Even though it may seem like there isn’t a reason, there is one. You just need to figure out what it is, and then find a way to solve whatever it is that is bothering you. Why You’re Feeling Emotional
How to Identify the Reasons for Feeling Emotional
The reasons for feeling emotional differ for men vs. women. Men often feel emotional when they experience a loss. They may lose their job, a spouse, or something else that this is a major part of their life. The mourning process for this loss can cause men to be emotional. This can be crying, feeling sad, angry, or frustrated.
Often times, when men think of “feeling emotional” they think of it as crying, but it can be any emotion.
For women, loss can be a factor in emotions as well. All of the reasons men might feel sad, mad, etc. can be the same for women. An additional reason can be hormones, though. Hormone fluctuations can cause women to feel emotional throughout the month, especially right before their menstrual cycle. This doesn’t mean women don’t have a reason for feeling the way they do – it just means they may more sensitive to what is going on around them.
Besides hormones, there are other reasons women feel more emotional than men, sometimes. Women feel differently about things than men. Women can be affected by news stories, television programs, and stories they hear from friends and family. All of this information they receive can spark emotions inside of them that can be overwhelming. This is what can cause them to feel emotion overload.
How to Feel Better Emotionally
You can do a lot to feel better emotionally. The first thing is to be specific about what is bothering you. Take a step back from your life to see what isn’t right about it. When you can identify what you’re displeased with, you can start to consider what you can do about it. Problem solving the situation can take some effort and when you’re dealing with an abundance of emotions, it can be difficult to come to solutions.
Personal consulting can help you with that. By discussing the problems or situations that are causing you to feel emotional, you can start to see things in a different way. A personal consultant can point out things that you may not have considered that could help you come up with solutions for whatever is bothering you right now.
