Life is a series of stories, and each of us has a unique story to tell. Billions and billions of stories and no two are exactly the same. If the story of your life has been filled with more sad moments than happy moments, it's time to change that. And the best place to start is in your head.
You have the power to create the life you want. A crucial skill that will help you achieve this is learning to become emotionally strong. The good news is that emotional strength is like a muscle: the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.
Once you think you are emotionally strong, you act unconsciously stronger than before and you begin to take control of your emotional whims. - Senora Roy
In this article, you will learn 17 things that emotionally strong people do not do ... so that you can begin to create the existence that you have always imagined for yourself.
1. They do not ask for attention.
Emotional strength is synonymous with trust, and confident people do not need to stay constantly in the centre of attention. They are comfortable in their skin.
2. They do not allow others to slaughter them.
Emotionally strong people ignore enemies and enemies. They eliminate these people and surround themselves with positive people instead.
3. They do not stop believing in themselves.
In a way, I can not believe that a man who knows the secrets of realizing his dreams can reach heights. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summed up in four C. They are curiosity, trust, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is trust. When you believe in one thing, believe it to the end, implicitly and indisputably. - Walt Disney
Soak up those incredible words of Walt Disney. Because belief is the most essential quality of emotional strength.
4. They are not afraid to love.
Love is the force that transforms and improves the soul of the world. - Paulo Coelho
People with emotional strength have experienced grief. But it does not hold them back ... it makes them stronger. It is not because you have been hurt that you should exclude all love from your life. Open your heart and embrace vulnerability. The love you find will be worth everything you go through to get it.
5. They are not afraid to slow down.
Sometimes you have to step back and slow down when you push yourself too hard. Having driving is good but not at the expense of your health and well-being. Give yourself time for reflection and relaxation.
6. They refuse to be victims of circumstances.
Being emotionally strong means refusing to apologize. Leave the past behind and focus on a little better each day.
7. They have no problem saying no.
Saying no is one of the most important things you will learn to do. Concentrate on your priorities and refuse all that is wasting time.
8. They do not shrink from the challenges.
Emotionally strong people see challenges as opportunities to grow and improve their lives. The challenges are coming for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.
9. They do not do what they do not want to do.
If you want to keep your emotional balance and mental health intact, do what you love. Get rid of the luggage and commitments that make you miserable.
10. They do not forget that happiness is a decision.
Emotionally strong people know that happiness is a choice. They understand the things they need to be really happy. They choose a life of simplicity, productivity, and passion.
11. They do not waste time.
Abraham Lincoln said, "It's not the years of your life that matter. It's life in your years. "Strong people emotionally do not waste time making headless bullshit. They live conscientiously in the present, enjoying each day as if it were their last day.
12. They are not afraid to ask for help.
All great minds in history, from Einstein to Edison, have been helped throughout the process. You can not do everything all alone, and it takes an emotionally strong person to engulf their pride and ask for help.
13. They do not hold back.
Self-impairment is a common trait among emotionally weak people. This means that you make excuses and find ways to justify your shortcomings instead of finding ways to improve them. If you want to change something, stop holding yourself back. Just start. Small victories lead to major changes.
14. They do not mind working a little harder than everyone else.
The heights attained and preserved by the great men were not reached by a sudden flight, but while their companions slept, they struggled in the night. - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Soak up those poetic words of Longfellow. Get to work and you'll get the results you're looking for.
15. They do not overreact to things beyond their control.
Charles Swindoll said, "Life is 10% of what I feel and 90% of my reaction." Think about how many times a day you overreact to things that do not matter. When you start to feel your blood boiling, take a deep breath and ask yourself, "Is it really worth stressing?" Ninety-nine per cent of the time, you will realize that the answer is no.
16. They are not content with a mediocre life.
Emotionally strong people are not content with mediocrity. They strive to reach greatness.
17. They never give up.
To be emotionally strong is to face adversity, learn from one's mistakes and live to fight another day. I'll leave you with this inspiring quote from Harriet Beecher Stowe:
When you arrive in a small place and everything is going against you, until you feel like you can not stop any longer, never give up, because that's the place and the time where the tide will turn.
