How many of you remember this stunning scene from Bahubali – The beginning, an epic action Indian movie?
Devasena announcing her mission over misery…
Name it to tame it…
Fear of missing out (FOMO), many of us might have felt one way or other.
My phone is silent most of the time not because I keep it in silent mode. Because, no one bothers to check on me. Only calls I receive are my work related and rarely one or two from my small group of well-wishers calls me. Wherein, many of my friends’ phones are noise generators.
At one point of time, I was feeling lonely and started thinking that, “no one cares or bothers about my whereabouts and/or well-being”.
I used to think on this for hours together and get enclosed in negativity.
Upon days and months of thinking, I realized my frequent relocation and changing of contact number made it bit difficult for my dear friends to get in touch with me and I have taken no efforts to patch up, as I go busy in my own world of struggling to build myself.
These thoughts led me to read some self-help books, happened to watch some of motivational and inspirational videos and finally to pursue a certified life coaching, NLP and Emotional intelligence practitioner courses.
The revealing was “I may be alone, but not lonely”.
This very thought after years gave me a sigh of relief and peace at mind.
In an emotional intelligence practice, this technique “Name it to tame it” is the basic technique to identify an emotion, finding it’s trigger and the derail.
After knowing it, I have come across another psychological insights on social media which goes like this; ‘’If someone irritates you most, means they love you but don’t know how to express their love”.
Our emotions are nothing but an excited states of our mind. A happy emotion is a known thing wherein an anxiety is also an excited state and it’s over unknown things, merely a negative emotion.
Know it by naming, then you will know how to tame it. Which of the emotion have you tamed it by naming it? comment below.
