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.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
