365 Days of Self Discovery: Feelings & Emotions

1.20.19

Day 21

Do you hide your emotions, if so, why?

  • I used to hide my emotions and did a swell job of it most of the time. Now, not so much, just depends on the circumstances and the reasoning. I know they say hiding your emotions isn’t a good coping method & in the end it just puts more of a burden on us. I normally hide my emotions when I don’t want people/someone to ask me questions about how I am feeling, or when I am afraid of how someone might respond to me showing emotions, and also when I am trying to be someone else’s “rock” and make sure they are okay & for the sake of them, I want to be strong for the both of us. 
Are you the type to hide your emotions?

What do you need to make more time for?

  • Myself. Taking myself places (vacationing, traveling, spas, day trips, weekend trips, etc) spending time doing things I enjoy doing and getting away from the mundane life that I live in & taking more time on myself, doing things for me that I haven’t done or don’t do often enough. The “me” time I need is the kind that allows me to relax mentally — not feel so rushed or in a hurry constantly. 
  • I want more time to build my “empire” , build my business and develop my career. I need to take time to do this and make it a priority if I want to be successful and want to reap the rewards of my hard work. It’s something I want to do and something I need to do if I want to further myself in my profession. 
What do you guys need to make more time for?

Are you a confident person or do you find yourself doubting your abilities?

  •  I am a little bit of both. I am confident but at the same time I find myself doubting myself and what I am capable of due to fear; fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown. Many times I start off confident but then my mind/thoughts get the best of me and I start second guessing myself.

Do you cope well when faced with challenges?

  • I think coping takes me longer than others & I think I have gotten better at finding various ways to cope with certain challenges, but I still find that the process takes longer for me.

Do you have problems releasing your creative side? Why do you think this is?

  • Yes, I do have issues with releasing my creative side, I have my moments, but I don’t think of myself as very creative. Some of the reasoning might be that I am more logical when it comes to thinking (so maybe I use that half of the brain more or it’s my stronger suit) and while I don’t think I am 100 percent logical, I think it is quite possible that my creative side lacks my attention. However, I am musically aware, have a decent imagination, and intuition (which is all the creative half my mind) — so with that being said, I have my moment of creativity, but unlike others, it takes me awhile to put things together and make sense of the art.

What rules or standards do you live by?

  • I have a number of rules and standards that I try to live by the best way I know how. Some of which you may have heard of it and some you have not. All of these rules/standards can somewhat be summed up by my morals and belief system. While this may not be an all exclusive list, it is a decent amount. 
  1. “Treat the janitor with the same respect as you would the CEO” — this is something I was taught by my grandmother, and to be honest, I love this saying because we tend to treat people differently due to their status quo. The CEO puts his pants on the same way as either you or I. 
  2. Don’t allow someone to back you into a corner mentally, or physically & if they do, come out fighting. Basically what this means is, we can only manage to handle so much before we explode, we shouldn’t allow someone(s) to get us to the point where we just continue to take the hits they give us. If we don’t learn to stand up for ourselves than we will continue to allow someone to take advantage of us. Sometimes to come out swinging, means to STOP putting up with people’s crap. 
  3. Your body can handle the challenges that your mind thinks you can’t. The body can be pushed further than what the mind allows. Don’t allow your thinking to get the best of you. 
  4. Guilt can kill a man, therefore, make choices in which you won’t feel guilty about later & make them wisely. If you know a choice will cause you pain later, then maybe it is time to rethink your choice(s) so that you don’t have to live with this kind of guilt. Sometimes guilt plays on us without our control due to circumstances, but we have to learn to let go of it, and move on. We can’t move on properly if we live a life full of regrets. 
  5. Take risk because they can sometimes lead us to great opportunities. 
  6. Be a leader, not a boss. People don’t want to be told what to do, they want to be led by someone who will do the work with them. People don’t like being bossed around, they prefer to be asked & if you live your life trying to be a boss, you will earn less respect in the long run, but if you live your life as a leader, respect will gradually grow and with respect will come trust and a group of people who will stand alongside of you. 
  7. “Treat people the way you want to be treated”
  8. An open mind builds a bigger perspective. Living inside a closed box doesn’t allow you to see everything from different viewpoints. If you keep an open mind, you will see the world in many different perspectives and have respect for many different voices of reason. 
  9. Take accountability for your actions
  10. The type of people you surround yourself with, usually is a good indicator of the type of person you are
  11. “Close mouths don’t get fed”. If you don’t speak up, you won’t be heard
  12. Be yourself, those that like you will like you for who you are & those that don’t like you, won’t matter.
