What makes people emotionally strong?Q. What makes me emotionally strong?Some Fundamentals of Emotional Health1. Have a healthy attitude towards Responsibility.- Accept own and other’s autonomy.-Limitations of my control/responsibility-“How did I contribute to this?”, in contrast to“It’s not my fault”.2. Be able to Take Correction without taking offence.- From life and people.-Correction does not equal rejection.-“So how’s that working for you?”-“Failure isn’t fatal unless I fail to learn from it.”3. Be able to adjust one’sExpectations.-Of self, of others, of the world.-Flexible minds bend rather than break!-When angry/disappointed “Are my expectations realistic?”4. Be able to ‘win-win’Negotiate.-Balance my needs/wants/requirements with others.-Be able to give and take.-Face conflict in an adult manner.5. Be able to be GentlyAssertive.-Know and maintain one’s boundaries.-“My responsibility is to speak the truth in love, theirresponse is their responsibility.”Emotional EconomicsWhen the river runs low, the rocks showthrough.
