What do we do with these messy things called emotions? Some can be strong, confusing and difficult to deal with.
According to Brad Chapin, LCP, LMLP, – a masters level psychologist, national expert on Self-Regulation and the Director for Children’s Services at a regional mental health center – an important step in managing emotions is to identify them correctly. This helps us understand that we own our emotions and are responsible for them. Other people and events have no control over our emotions unless we allow it.
