Sometimes learning to manage our emotions can be really difficult and frustrating. Especially when others don't acknowledge it. Telling others helps, but sometimes having an alternate perception can improve how we react or respond to situations in a better light. Maybe my motto can be enlightening to you in some way, "Live life in the moment and view each moment simply as a moment a point in time. In this moment we have a choice on what we're going to be and how we're going to react accordingly and be the person we want to truly be.”

People who are close to you may see that you struggle managing your emotions however seeing this may make it difficult for them to bring up and discuss the topic with you. They see you are having a hard time the last thing they want to do is make a hard situation seem impossible. If you are questioning whether or not someone realizes the best way to find out is to ask, the worst they could say is no but then proceed to inquire about what is wrong and how can they help.

It is possible. However, the person who would know best is yourself! If you feel you are having trouble managing your emotions, you can always speak with an active trained listener on here, including myself, who can give you some tips and help you feel more confident and at ease!

Yes, someone realizes it. Whether it be a person you don't even know, there's always someone who notices it; and sooner or later they'll confront you about it.

It depends on what sort of non-verbal cues you wish to convey. Sometimes people don't, sometimes they do. But if you are so distressed as you claim, I think a listening ear would be most beneficial to you in relieving your tensions.

I find that usually when my emotions are making me sad, I actually feel a bittersweet love towards my depressed, jumpy feelings. Despite this being happy is always obviously better. The solution to my unstable emotions would always be to make a new friend. Friends bring happiness which somehow leads to a more stable income of emotions.

It's hard to say, because that's a very personal thing, and very character dependant. If you're very emotional a lot, have mood swings or react "heavily" to something simple, then it can be obvious, yes. If you're quite quiet, and don't have a tendency to get involved in emotional conflict, then it would obviously be harder !

I believe that all people go through periods in their life where they struggle managing their emotions. For me, practicing mindfulness techniques has been the most helpful to me. Especially remembering to pay attention to my body's physical reactions to stress. When I notice I am becoming anxious or stressed I stop what I am doing and put on my guided imagery recording and BREATHE. When I feel very alone and stuck in my own negative thoughts I look at my left wrist where I have a plain text tattoo that says BREATHE. Slowing down in the moment can help me manage my strong emotions.

Contrary to popular belief, everyone is dealing with their own emotions. No one is alone, and chances are someone near you is dealing with similar feelings. People often have a hard time realizing that the people around them are going through their own struggles in life,

There is a high chance that not everyone will realize what you are going through and not even half of them that realizes it knows how it feels or to deal with it. But as humans we only know how to deal with things that we find familiar. New things always scares us. The best you can do is talk to people and at least get things off ur chest.

Sometimes people are able to see my emotions on my face, however, I am able to control my words and express how I am feeling in a calm way despite how I am feeling. Finding out how I best manage emotions has taken a lot of time, but I have grown a lot and am better able to regulate my emotions after a lot of reflection and practice. Writing has helped me regulate my emotions, documenting feelings and how they make me feel and what I did about that feeling. Sometimes working out, other times coloring or journaling is what best helps me.
