I manage my emotions when I am at work. I work in customer service and people can be really mean sometimes. There have been times where I have wanted to shout at them and punch them in their face, but I control my emotions and force myself to act professional.

As a Listener, I don't use 7 Cups to manage my emotions. In my personal life, I manage my emotions well by actively trying to catch myself should they feel heightened. I ask myself, "Why are you feeling so angry? Is this a logical response?" I find that it helps to "talk myself down," so-to-speak. I ask, "What would be the point of doing this, or reacting in this way?"

By talking it through with someone close to me; there is always someone a phone call away. I'll admit that I had also used addictive substances to help cope at times as well...

Just trying to stay calm, listening to music and taking deep breaths, lots of things can help you stay calm and manage your emotions in difficult situations.

Emotions are not meant to be managed it needs to be dealt with. Else it will resurface when triggered.

The first time you face a difficult situation, you don't know what you can do. All is a disaster. But, you can learn about your fails. Think about somebody who will help you in a difficult situation, and actue like him.

I always kind of hided, because I was too scared that people would judge me. This wasn't helping, so I started talking to a psychologist. This really helped me to deal with my depression.

I have wrote down my feelings. Writing it down got it out of my system and made everything better. I really enjoyed taking pen to paper because that was one thing that would never let me down.

There have been different approach at different times. There are a few things which work well and what works for one may not work for others, so one has to find out after trying what is best for oneself.

I still take out a sheet of paper and divide it into two columns. What is causing me unhappiness? How can I fix this? Then proceed to fill out as many problems and solutions as possible.
