HOW TO DEAL WITH DIFFICULT EMOTIONS
The Gottman Institute
The key to dealing with difficult emotions like anger, confusion, fear, loneliness, and sadness is mindfulness.
Practicing mindfulness enables you to calm down and soothe yourself. When you’re calm, you have space to reflect and thoughtfully respond, rather than react.
Following these six steps will help you to understand and deal with your difficult emotions in a mindful way.
Mindfully dealing with emotions is hard and it takes time. Be kind, compassionate, and patient with yourself and your partner.
