Previously on The Soul Talks, I had talked about Sense of belonging on what actually is the sense of belonging and how can you achieve it in easy three steps. In case, you’ve missed the article, here’s the link: http://thesoultalks10.com/sense-of-belonging-three-ways-to-achieve-it/
Today, the emotion that I’m going to talk about is Breakdowns. Lemme tell you straight breakdowns are damn tough. Its like losing 20 kilos within a month, that bad are breakdowns.
Breakdowns are those moments when all you do is be lowkey and try to be alone, think of getting cured but that doesn’t happen.
Having an emotional breakdown is really daunting, just as when pressure begins to overwhelm an individual to the point where her professional or personal well-being is compromised, symptoms of a emotional breakdown may become apparent.
What you gotta do in such a situation is
Be a good listener:
Being a listener means just that – you do not necessarily have to give advice or your opinion on the situation. No one is expecting you to have the qualifications of a professional mental health counselor, and you probably should not attempt to do so. More damage may be sustained if you, with all good intentions, encourage a fragile individual to just “snap out of it.” This can invalidate emotions and compel her to feel ashamed or guilty about his/her current situation in life.
A small word belief can do wonders trust me if you start believing that no one can take away my share of happiness or my share of joyous moments.
At times when I’m down, don’t feel like talking to anyone or don’t feel like doing anything then what I do is believe that this too shall pass and make it point that it doesn’t take away my due share of happiness. Not to sound hypothetical but this believe can take you way ahead and get you out of that swamp where negativity stays.
Do what you like:
Do you watch cartoons? Nope? I do! It sounds kiddish but it definitely works. I mean watching Shinchan or tuning into Doraemon or whatsoever cartoon you might like, there’s a hell lot of positivity coming from these cartoons. Shinchan is the go to man for me: anytime, anywhere!!
Not just cartoons, if you like anything else which really pumps you up, DO IT. do not wait for anyone to come to you and serve you cus that’s not gonna happen, you have to fight your own battles.
