Here`s a solution for you
Firstly you have to accept that there are people who are very emotional and they easily get hurt when bad or wrong things happen with them, and you could be one of them. It is normal and okay to be emotional but it can be harmful for your emotional health if you take every little thing on your heart.
Avoid situations and circumstance that trigger unwanted emotions. If you are at home, school or at work, or with your friends, and you know that people in your family or people around you can start to talk about those things which you don`t want to hear,
for example ; talking about your marriage, family, love life etc. In that case you should immediately leave that place or indulge yourself doing something else, walk out, use your phone, leave that place, go out somewhere or just go inside your room, go as far as you can before you start getting emotionally hurt by hearing those things that you don`t want to hear.
Do things that you like. If you want to keep yourself emotionally happy and calm because you know that you are emotionally not very strong, then learn to keep yourself happy by doing little or big things that can can bring you peace of mind. If you like to sing, Just sing your favorite songs and put them on social media or simply record them and share with your family and friends.
If you love art, start painting every day and keep yourself busy and away from the negative things that are happening around you. Do what makes you happy and try to keep yourself busy doing anything you like. When you are busy, you don`t get time to think about stupid things, you focus on your goals rather than thinking about negative things and feeling bad about small things that are going wrong.
If you still think that nothing can help you to cope up or manage your feelings in a positive way. If you feel that you are still emotionally very weak and your emotional health is not good at all, your emotions are controlling you and nothing seems right. In that case i would suggest you to just go with the flow. go easy, if you can`t change things that you don`t like, it is okay, take it easy, relax and take a deep breath.
sit alone and just keep one thing in mind that we often create problems in life just by thinking too much, getting emotionally hurt when things are going wrong but when this hard and bad time passes away, you start to think that you have wasted your emotions and feelings on those things which couldn`t even harm you.
You have wasted a lot of time on those people and things which didn`t even matter. And even if in present you are getting emotionally weak because of the people around you or because of your daily life or health problems, just think once what are you getting by being so weak emotionally?
Nothing. You get nothing but create more problems for yourself, thinking too much won`t change your situation. Why don`t you fight with your negative emotions just by not giving a damn ?
You just have to stop overthinking or reacting in a wrong way in such bad situations. Someone said something wrong to you? so what? Stop thinking about what they said to you, it doesn`t matter, keep going. Keep doing what you are doing.
Listen to them but don`t just keep thinking about the same thing all day, move on you have better things to do. Things are going wrong? This is life, Just try to find a solution to your problem instead of hurting yourself emotionally.
Work for yourself and others, help needy people, earn money and buy yourself some happiness by buying your favorite things. Take care of your health, Eat your favorite food.
