How to Be Less Emotional in a Relationship

Posted on :2012-12-17 in

Life can become complex if you are an emotional person and take things easily to your heart. Being sensitive may not be a bad thing but it can certainly land you up in deep trouble if you let yourself become a slave of emotions.

Find a way out to control your emotions to ensure that your relationships do not get ruined as a result of the untamed emotional reactions.

Here are some of the finest ways and effective tips in which you could become less emotional and avoid getting hurt or prevent your relationships from getting spoiled.

Identify your emotional triggers

You need to find factors that arouse your emotions quickly and lead you to take actions that have a negative impact on your relationship. It is best to find out reasons that prompt you to give hyper emotional reactions. Analyze the situations when you get angry, upset, jealous or anxious. Know the circumstances in which you are most likely to experience a high level of emotional outburst. When you will be able to find emotional triggers that lead you to give out strong reactions then you will also be able to learn to put these factors under control.

Communicate Your Problems

When you feel emotionally triggered then it is best to show some restraint over your emotions and talk to the people who can help bring down your sensitivity chip. Try and be communicative rather than being sensitive if you want to save a relationship from getting broken because of your overriding emotions. You are blessed with the gift of expressing your emotions and feelings through your communications skills. Therefore, make the best use of it and use words to express your feelings rather than resorting to emotional outbursts. Follow a more methodical, communicative approach rather than taking the non-verbal, childish route of explaining your feelings. It will be more appreciated by your loved ones if you can use your communications skills to convey your emotions rather than sticking to childish behavior of expression.

Avoid acting on your feelings always

Even if you feel upset or a little angry over someone’s negative remarks or comments, try and keep a calm and composed nature. Stay silent and it is best not to make abusive comments or hurl back negative remarks to the person. Instead wait for a few moments to let your nerves cool down and to regain your composure. You can confront the other person later on and communicate to him about your displeasure of his behavior to make bad remarks on you in a non-provocative way.

Overhaul your approach to people and emotionally touching situations

Even though an attitude adjustment may seem a little hard but is imperative for helping you emerge as an emotionally stronger person. Incorporate changes in your behavior and in the way you handle problems. Instead of looking at difficulties as catastrophic situations, look at them as experiences that carry important lessons and challenges that will go a long way in enriching your mind and in increasing your endurance limit.
