I’m usually very patient hardly lose my cool, even in extreme situations

I seem to have an unusual problem. I’m in Class XI. I’m usually very patient hardly lose my cool, even in extreme situations. I don’t even react and keep it all bottled up within me. In fact, people take advantage of my patience. However, when I reach the breaking point, instead of having an outburst, I start crying. When this happens, I’m called a coward. What do I do?

It is not good idea to suppress your feelings, positive or negative. When emotions get bottled up, it is natural to have an outburst, and many a time it happens at an undesirable time, leading to misunderstanding and prove in relationships. Also, it is not healthy for the body to undergo this stress. Suppressing one’s emotions leads to poor quality of life; managing them leads to a healthy ways of life. It is very important to find out healthy ways of letting out unwanted feelings towards any situation or person. Most importantly, you need to accept the fact that it is okay to get angry. Be assertive without being rude or arrogant. Withdrawal from the situation will not solve the problem. Try art forms such as music, dance, painting etc. since they are cathartic and can calm your mind. Meditation and relaxation exercises too are helpful. Journalizing your thoughts will be a healthy way of letting go of your feelings.
