The emotions that people put off are sometimes easy to catch. I’m sure we’ve all experienced it at some time or another. Someone around you is happy so you feel happy. That’s great! But sometimes when people experience negative emotions, you catch some of it and maybe don’t feel so good yourself.
This is pretty natural. You’re supposed to feel good when someone else feels good. You’re supposed to be bummed out if the people around you are bummed out. It’s simple empathy. But just because it’s natural doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to have some level of control over it. Let’s dig into how we can keep the emotions of other people from invading our lives.
Of course, be there for the people in your life at whatever level makes sense, but know when to disengage too. Practice meditation and yoga to help you disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with yourself.
2. Find positive people.
If your partner is being negative, call a friend who has a more positive outlook. Hear the words of positive people. Moreover, spend time cultivating a group of friends who see the bright side.
3. Manage your own emotions.
If you don’t have control over your own emotions, it’s going to be hard to keep control of the emotions of others. Practice mindfulness in how you feel. Think things through in a proactive way. Take control over your emotions.
4. Meditate upon your shield.
Visualization has some pretty incredible impacts sometimes. What I like to do if I know I’m entering an emotionally taxing day is meditate upon a sort of shield. It can be a physical shield, light shield, a higher power, or whatever you like. Visualize it blocking the emotions coming at you.
5. Center yourself.
If you’re surrounded by negativity in particular, it can be good to center yourself. For a few minutes, focus on your breath. Breathe in the positive and exhale the negativity.
6. Don’t spend time with the source.
Sometimes you just have to cut ties with a person who is nothing but negativity and puts it all on you.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
