Do Your Emotions Control You?

​”Ladies are emotional”.

I have heard that saying several times, and unfortunately about 89% of the time, it is used as a derogatory remark. Who says being emotional is a weakness?

Would you say because eggs have fragile shells mean they do not carry adequate or required nutritional values?

Being emotional isn’t some negative thing that you wish away because it is causing you to make wrong decisions. The problem is not an emotional matter, the problem is a discipline matter.

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline”  2Timothy 1:7 (NIV)

My lady, please pay attention: you have emotions, not the other way around. Emotions do not own you, so it is expedient that your emotions do not rule your life. Now I am not just talking the lovey dovey emotions. This covers anger, sadness, excitement, guilt, pain etc.

Most ladies have repeated and serious cases of mood swings, and as much as this can be traced to some hormonal dance in your body system, it is key that you realize that you own your emotions, you decide which way you want to steer it.

If you want to stay angry, choose to. If you want to discard an angry emotion, find a way to. You have a mushy-gushy feeling for some guy and he is using it to take advantage of you, if you like being taken advantage of, enjoy the mushy feeling, but if you realize your self-worth and don’t want to be taken advantage of, with self discipline, take that emotion and steer it in a way that you please.

Your emotions isn’t more powerful than you. Our emotions are strong catalyst of how we do things, but it is still our decision to respond to how our emotions are ringing.

Dear lady, I challenge you today to begin to get a grip of your emotions. Don’t let them run wild if you don’t want to.

Be in charge of them. Pour love on people even when your emotion says otherwise, laugh out loud even when your emotion says cry, stay happy even when your emotion says be angry. It is your life, your emotions, steer it in the direction you want.

Please stop allowing mood swings finish your life. Stop allowing mood swings stop you from enjoying fun times. Stop allowing mood swings steal time from you. Take your emotion and turn them into some of greater good for yourself and humanity.

I love you.
