It is very difficult when somebody goes through an emotional moment over nothing it is simply because there is a deep subconscious thought that either brings Joy or sorrow and I sometimes wish they had somebody to share it with but nobody is usually available. but I know that when these moments to happen it is very temporary and we are able to recover and move on with our lives
In my experience, it usually isn't nothing even though it first feels that way. Be kind to yourself and remember you're human, even if it doesn't seem like there's reason to be emotional, you are valid in your emotions.
Some people are more emotional than others. There is nothing to be ashamed of or feel like you need to hide it.
Depression, or maybe you just think of something and you get emotional. Maybe someone says something or you think of something and you get triggered by it.
i think it sometimes be accumilated problems or sometimes this person is just sensitive by nature .
Some people are just more emotional- there's nothing wrong with that! Some people are more susceptible to more intense feelings for a variety of reasons (hormones, past experiences, etc.) so don't feel bad about being emotional :)
It may look like nothing, but deep down it may have trigger something that you have long forgotten or things don't want to recall.
Sometimes we bottle up emotions and these later come out at random times. Try to figure out if there are things in your life making you unhappy. Then try to solve these issues.
If something has a meaning to you, you have every right to be emotional. As long as it is healthy, feel free to express your feelings.
1) PMS 2) menopause 3) Jealousy 4) crazy 5) Nothing better to do 6) Loneliness 7) Dont feel appreciated
Chemical imbalances in your brain... These chemicals are called neurotransmitters.. it affects the way you think .. try googling it..
I think because you have been holding yourself together for too long, sometimes you have to let it all out or it will all be to much and you can get emotionally easily
Sometimes when we are going through things inside it can appear outside as a way to let us know that something isn't right and we should stop and take inventory of ourselves.
Well, if it happens to you, which means you are a very emotional person and relate things with yourself. You put yourself in that position or in their shoes and that’s how you get emotional. You must have gone through those stages and feels the pain in being such kind of situations. It is very hard or I would say impossible to come out of that kind of nature. The best way is to help others, it may people, animal or any kind of species and when you do that, it let you forget their pain and makes you feel better
Emotions are experienced differently by different people. There are no right or wrong ways to experience them. Try embracing your emotions as they come. Be angry when you are angry, sad when you are sad, and happy when you are happy. You may not always have the ability to control your emotions, but you always have the ability to choose how you act on your emotions. Managing your emotions more effectively can also be a bit easier when you take care of your overall health. Try to eat well, sleep enough, exercise, and limit the use of psychoactive substances.
It's likely not about nothing, but that the shock of whatever it was has made you forget in this moment.
it’s not over nothing, maybe you bottle feelings up until you just have to let something out. Being emotional isn’t necessarily bad, it just means you’re able to feel more then others.
It's normal to feel strong emotions, and it is common to have them come up over things are brains tell us are "nothing." As scary as it can feel, sometimes it's worth investigating both the feelings and the "nothing" to learned about our emotional reactions and what triggers them. Good luck!
It's unlikely that being emotional can be over nothing, there is likely a route that hasn't been identified. Be this your current physical state or your mental state and factors around you.
Sometimes your mind can be saying things to you that you may not understand. Always be there for yourself and try to understand the feelings and emotions you are having.
By getting emotional over something shows you care about it, while it may seem insignificant people who tend to get emotional show a lot of care and empathy where others may not. Being emotional isn't always a bad thing :)
You could be hormonal, it’s definitely worth talking to somebody about this as you may not understand everything that comes with hormones it could even be a hormonal imbalance, nothing to worry over but maybe talk to a doctor too
People seek easy answers to complex questions! There are a number of things that could be going on here... other people might be telling you you are getting emotional for no reason, because for some reason they are unwilling to face their part in the fact that you are upset... but equally well, you may indeed be overreacting and there could be health reasons for this... unbalanced hormones, thymus... either way, establishing a way to feel calm within yourself is the optimal way of living... and If I had the answer sampled and bottled I would send it to you!
Because some of us are built as emotional types. Ever since i was young i couldn't understand why i was so sensitive. Even now my bf calls me hyper emotional sometimes and he's an emotional chap. So i was hospitalized when i was 9 because my body had started becoming paralysed due to all that bottled up emotional energy i had. i grey up in a broken home but at the time i didn't know it. My parents fighting affected me very badly to the point where i would go silent for weeks and no one would seem to notice. They were so into their own fights and failures and successes that they failed to realize i was a being. there, witnessing everything they were doing and it affected the very way i saw myself.
People get so emotional over nothing because of many reasons. It can be because something trigger you to be emotional. It may appear "nothing" in the surface but deep inside, you really care about it. Maybe, you just pretend that you don't or maybe, you forget that fact that you really do care. That's why when something happened similar to it, or when you heard something connected to it, all the emotions seem resurfacing again. All the emotions are appearing again with the memories you have. It may also be because you are thinking about the endless possibilities about this "nothing" you are talking about. Thus, making you anxious and emotional.
When I get emotional over nothing, I know it's because something deeper is going on. So I ask myself what the emotion is trying to tell me. For example, if my boss contacts me over the weekend and I get so frustrated that I cry. I know it's not just because she contacted me, but because I'm feeling overwhelmed with my lack of boundaries across all areas of my life. So I take action towards setting more boundaries so that I feel safe in the world rather than living in fear that someone will cross a boundary that I have may set, but only have set in my mind. No one can read your mind so you have to tell people what you need and how they can support you.
Well, it could just be your personality, some people are highly sensitive, more than others, and there's nothing wrong with that. But if you are getting too emotional over anything, it may mean that you've reached your limit in terms of enduring your pain or your emotions. You've got so many emotions inside of you, willing to be out, and if you force them to keep them inside, you're going to break in any opportunity you have. You are not giving you the time and opportunity to deal with your emotions. let them out. talk to someone; a friend, family, or a listener. even maybe write them down. you'll see how that helps you to relief yourself!
It may appear that you're being emotional over nothing, but it most likely means there is something bothering you that you haven't put your finger on. Misplaced or unidentified emotions can burst out in inappropriate forms or moments. Trying to sort through what triggers the emotional outbursts, preferably with a trained professional, can help you deal with them adequately. It can also help if, when you get emotional, you stop and reflect on what was the immediate cause. You could even write it down, it can end up showing you a pattern of triggers, and help you get to the underlying cause of it.
It could be because you’re so stressed about other issues, this one topic pushes you over the edge. Imagine a glass filling up. The water reaches the brim and is about to overflow but hasn’t yet. Suddenly, a small drop tops into the glass and water goes everywhere. That’s just how emotions are sometimes. Theyre messy and complicated but with the right emotional and physical support we can get through it. It may also be that some less meaningful topic is a trigger to a bigger, deeper problem. You may have to dig around your feelings for a while to figure out what’s wrong. Triggers can be confusing and we may not always understand them but it will get better
Emotions are always valid, no matter what. Getting emotional over what seems like nothing is perfectly fine! Sometimes our emotions don't know how to respond to certain things. If we have a lot on our mind, we tend to be more sensitive to smaller situations. The more we embrace our emotions instead of pushing them down, the better we feel. The way we feel is apart of who we are and what we like and dislike. It is never wrong to feel a certain way, even if it feels wrong. Everyone feels this way one way or another, but everyone reacts to it differently.
