Manage Sadness, Anger and Fear to Find Joy

Alexis Carrel said, “Life leaps like a geyser for those willing to drill through the rock of inertia.” Inertia is defined as an inability or unwillingness to move or act.

Inertia, apathy, or inactivity: all are caused by destructive emotions such as fear, anger or deep sadness.

The longer I live, the more people I work with, and the more I observe; the more convinced I become that emotion is the primary driving force behind our action as well as our inaction.

Most of us are ruled by destructive emotions. Our prevalent mood is one of fear, sadness or anger. If you have no emotional management, if you cannot harness your negative emotions, then you are a slave to them.

Fear paralyzes us.

Anger turned inward can lead to resigned apathy (e.g., “I just don’t care anymore”).

Sadness causes inertia, a lack of movement.

Yet those that learn to manage their negative emotions can leap like a stag through inertia to grasp joy, happiness and meaning.

Managing emotion is the first step. When you learn to accept your negative emotions as they are, they will pass through you more quickly. As your destructive emotions leave sooner, the damage they do to your physical body is reduced. Your relationships improve. Your mood is lightened. Your life is better.

Learn how to manage your emotions. It is the first step towards a happier existence.

Have a wonderful week!
