10 Reasons Why an Emotional Partner Is Really Good for You

10 Reasons Why an Emotional Partner Is Really Good for You

As human beings, there is nothing more familiar than the experience of emotions. Life experiences can rely on the emotion a person feels during any given time. Happiness and similar positive emotions can lead to a good, productive day. Sadness, and similar negative emotions on the other hand can lead to lack of energy and unproductivity. It’s needless to say, emotions can have a significant impact on our well-being and state of mind.

If you thinks, it is difficult enough for a normal person to go through periods of feeling deep and uncontrollable emotions, then consider the possibility that some people go through these periods 24/7.

If you are an emotional person, or know someone who is, then this should make sense to you. Although characteristics vary from person to person, there is something a majority of emotional people have in common: According to Psych Central, most emotions in day-to-day life are experienced much more dramatically than the usual. Even situations that wouldn’t normally be emotional suddenly become a  big deal. Emotions can fluctuate several times in a short period of time, as drastically as laughing and crying within the hour.

Knowing the implications of being around an emotional person, some people may not have the tolerance for an emotional partner. Though they do have downfalls like any other normal person, it is worth remembering that there are also a lot of pros to outweigh the cons. Here are some reasons as to why having an emotional partner is seriously worth considering.

1. They have a unique view of the world.

Boring relationships are not for everyone. Since emotional people are generally affected by various stimuli differently to normal people, they have a deeper, more creative outlook on life according to an article from Create Your True Life. This can provide results ranging from more interesting conversations to different ways of decorating your house.

2. They hold greater sympathy for others.

Nothing is greater than knowing someone understands how you’re feeling. Especially when that person happens to be your significant other. Emotional people have the ability to feel what others are feeling, meaning something greatly affecting you will most likely affect them as well.

3. They usually put a lot of responsibility upon themselves.

We have all experienced moments wherein people deny responsibility associated with their actions. In a relationship, this kind of denial can lead to unnecessary arguments and weakens your basis of trust. An emotional partner knows when they are responsible for something, so yet another plus.

4. They pay great attention to details due to their sensitivity.

According to an article by Psych Central, emotional people are usually perfectionists. The results of this personality trait can vary from a very tidy household to a partner who actually remembers your birthday and who makes sure they don’t forget to buy anything from the shopping list.

5. They are more in touch with their inner emotions.

As a general rule, you can’t give something that you don’t have. So in a relationship, it is difficult to support a partner who is struggling with their inner emotions when you yourself are unfamiliar with your own mental struggles. An emotional partner is beneficial to those who may not be so comfortable with their emotional state.

6. They get the hidden meanings.

You don’t always have to verbally spout out your emotions just so your partner is aware of them. Emotional partners can pick up the subtle hints. No awkward emotion spillings or misunderstandings. Honestly, they understand without a word.

7. They have a good connection with others.

They do not have to be the most talkative people, but they will often have a good connection with their friends, partners, colleages and family members. This makes them good at working in groups and means that they probably connect in relationships really well, too.

8. They are very precise in their decision making process.

Decisions should not be made hastily. While it could take an emotional partner a bit longer than most people to make a decison, at least you know your partner’s decision was thought through.

9. They will cry when watching chick flicks as much as you do.

Being more emotionally reactive is a major factor in the lifes of highly emotional people, according to an article by Huffington PostMostly aimed at the ladies, the sensitivity of an emotional partner means that not only will they be more likely to watch chick flicks than a normal guy, but they will also probably feel the plot just as much as you do. No bribes needed!

10. They are highly conscientious people.

Rude people are not fun to be around, and you must be crazy thinking it’s not difficult to deal with a rude partner. The good news for people with emotional partners s that they generally have really good manners. They are self aware and know how they affect those around them. Needless to say, they wont be caught trash-talking the in-laws.

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

Even the most charismatic people you know, whether in person or celebrities of some sort, experience days where they feel lost in life and isolated from everyone else.

While it’s good to know we aren’t alone in this feeling, the question still remains:

What should we do when we feel lost and lonely?

Here are 12 things to remember:

1. Recognize That It’s Okay!

The truth is, there are times you need to be alone. If you’ve always been accustomed to being in contact with people, this may prove difficult.

However, learning how to be alone and comfortable in your own skin will give you confidence and a sense of self reliance.

We cheat ourselves out of the opportunity to become self reliant when we look for constant companionship.

2. Use Your Lost and Loneliness as a Self-Directing Guide

You’ve most likely heard the expression: “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.”

Loneliness also serves as a life signal to indicate you’re in search of something. It’s when we’re in the midst of solitude that answers come from true soul searching.

Remember, there is more to life than what you’re feeling.

3. Realize Loneliness Helps You Face the Truth

Being in the constant company of others, although comforting sometimes, can often serve as a distraction when we need to face the reality of a situation.

Solitude cuts straight to the chase and forces you to deal with the problem at hand. See it as a blessing that can serve as a catalyst to set things right!

4. Be Aware That You Have More Control Than You Think

Typically, when we see ourselves as being lost or lonely, it gives us an excuse to view everything we come in contact with in a negative light. It lends itself to putting ourselves in the victim mode, when the truth of the matter is that you choose your attitude in every situation.

No one can force a feeling upon you! It is YOU who has the ultimate say as to how you choose to react.

5. Embrace the Freedom That the Feeling of Being Alone Can Offer

Instead of wallowing in self pity, which many are prone to do because of loneliness, try looking at your circumstance as a new-found freedom.

Most people are in constant need of approval of their viewpoints. Try enjoying the fact that  you don’t need everyone you care about to support your decisions.

6. Acknowledge the Person You Are Now

Perhaps you feel a sense of loneliness and confusion because your life circumstances have taken you away from the persona that others know to be you.

Perhaps the new you differs radically from the old. Realize that life is about change and how we react to that change. It’s okay that you’re not who you used to be.

7. Keep Striving to Do Your Best

Often those who are feeling isolated and unto themselves will develop a defeatist attitude. They’ll do substandard work because their self esteem is low and they don’t care.

Never let this feeling take away your sense of worth! Do your best always and when you come through this dark time, others will admire how you stayed determined in spite of the obstacles you had to overcome.

And to live your best life, you must do this ONE thing: step out of your comfort zone.

8. Don’t Forget That Time Is Precious

When we’re lost in a sea of loneliness and depression, it’s all too easy to reflect on regrets of past life events. This does nothing but feed negativity and perpetuate the situation.

Instead of falling prey to this common pitfall, put one foot in front of the other and acknowledge every positive step you take. By doing this, you can celebrate the struggles you overcome at the end of the day.

9. Remember, Things Happen for a Reason

Every circumstance we encounter in our life is designed to teach us and that lesson is in turn passed on to others.

Sometimes we’re fortunate enough to figure out the lesson to be learned, while other times, we simply need to have faith that if the lesson wasn’t meant directly for us to learn from, how we handled it was observed by someone who needed to learn.

Your solitude and feeling of lost, in this instance, although painful possibly, may be teaching someone else.

10. Journal During This Time

Record your thoughts when you’re at the height of loneliness and feeling lost. You’ll be amazed when you reflect back at how you viewed things at the time and how far you’ve come later.

This time (if recorded) can give you a keen insight into who you are and what makes you feel the way you feel.

11. Remember You Aren’t the First to Feel This Way

It’s quite common to feel as if we’re alone and no one else has ever felt this way before. We think this because at the time of our distress, we’re silently observing others around us who are seemingly fine in every way.

The truth is, we can’t possibly know the struggles of those around us unless they elect to share them. We ALL have known this pain!

Try confiding in someone you trust and ask them how they deal with these feelings when they experienced it. You may be surprised at what you learn.

12. Ask for Help If the Problem Persists

The feeling of being lost and lonely is common to everyone, but typically it will last for a relatively short period of time.

Most people will confess to, at one time or another, being in a “funk.” But if the problem persists longer than you feel it should, don’t ignore it.

When your ability to reason and consider things rationally becomes impaired, do not poo poo the problem away and think it isn’t worthy of attention. Seek medical help.

Afraid to ask for help? Here’s how to change your outlook to aim high!

Final Thoughts

Loneliness and a sense of feeling lost can in many ways be extremely painful and difficult to deal with at best. However, these feelings can also serve as a catalyst for change in our lives if we acknowledge them and act.

Above anything, cherish your mental well being and don’t underestimate its worth. Seek professional guidance if you’re unable to distinguish between a sense of freedom for yourself and a sense of despair.
