Emotional Self Hostage

What's going on BAye Hive Tribe!!

I know, I know. It's been a while! How has your New Year been going thus far? Mine has been going pretty good. My birthday was the 25th. I didn't really do anything but I'm thankful to see birthday #43. 

This brings me to current events. I woke up this morning to learn that Cheslie Kryst passed away. If you don't know who she is, I've linked an article on her death. Click here

Suicide is very triggering for me. I cried like a baby because I know how it feels. I just want to give you all some encouragement. I hope it touches someone.

Emotions govern self.

A person's self is governed by their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. An individual's body consists of emotions, feelings, and thoughts, which govern the nervous system of the body. These elements give instructions to the nerves and then the functioning of nerves begins. This means that these elements really play a vital role in discovering of self. The feelings and thoughts are interpreted, designed, and summarized by the six senses. 

A person's perception about life goes on changing according to changing time and are forced to react. These elements of life are necessary for survival and they help a person to experience and enhance tools like happiness, sadness, terror, risk, and surprise. The quality of life is dependent on these elements.

There is a difference between emotions and feelings. The major difference is that feelings are not linked to existence and these prevailing feelings are developed by religion, surroundings, and society. 

Feelings are affected both by economic and social factors. Emotions can be measured through different variations in the body such as blood pressure, pulse rate, brain, and electrodermal responses. However, feelings cannot be measured. Some of the known examples of feelings are aggravation, expectation, envy, anxiety, suspicion, and optimism. These elements come under the category of emotional self hostage.

Emotional stress can cause various problems to both the physical and psychological health of the human body. The pessimistic emotions always give stress, which is derived from an incident in the life of a person. 

These negative emotions can last for a long time in an individual's life. When the stressful negative emotions further increase, it gives rise to negative ideas, needs, addictions, imagination, compulsion, and obsession. These elements breed throughout life if a person adopts them. They become a hurdle in an individual's learning. The memory is fractured which disables a person to think.
When a person is emotionally secure, they can achieve the capability of thinking.
Then there is no place for the negative thoughts to enter. There are people who are not aware of the consequences of stressful negative emotions.  Negative emotions do not allow a person's mind to develop. The growth of the human body will not ever occur. Stress is a cumulative factor, which tends to last for at least 18 months. It is not exempted easily from a person's life. It also affects the immune system of the body. Constant stress can prove to be dangerous. The stress element also governs the emotional self hostage of a person.

A person's self allows acting as well as thinking. An individual's well-being governs the self. Therefore, a person should keep track of various performances and take immediate steps to improve acts if required.

Self-discipline solves the purpose of self to act and think to a large extent. It is very important in life as Self-discipline helps a person to achieve goals and ambitions. If they follow the path of Self-discipline, they will never have any problems at the time of reaching their destiny. They will not have to compromise in their life. Self-discipline is a key to success. It is a cultivated process; it will connect a person's past to the present and further to the future. 

Planning is very necessary when a person is thinking about goals and ambitions. Planning comes under self-discipline. Self-discipline helps a person to build a confidence level. Without any fear, a person can follow and move ahead in life. Self-discipline solves the purpose of emotional self-hostage by making aware of the cause and effects of negative emotions.

If a person wants any guidance regarding problems then they can take help from a psychologist. They will really get help in solving their problems. A person should always maintain a balance when it comes to problems in life.

I highly recommend everyone see a therapist (if possible). Our mental health is so important. We have to take care of our minds at all costs. Self-discipline is definitely needed in order to be successful.
