Emotional Independence! A phrase I keep shouting in my head, when walking around on campus from classroom to classroom you people's energies and moods can latch onto you and leave you feeling at least 10 lbs. heavier and a lot more tired then you might regularly be. I am learning to control my own emotions, and develop a deeper sense of specifically my own emotions and why I shouldn't let these other people affect me. Asking myself questions like:
what did you come into contact with that makes you feel this way?
who did you come into contact with that makes you feel this way?
is this person important enough to control your feelings?
is what you're upset about really worth it?
can you do anything about the issue or problem that may have arised?
Taking a patient moment to analyze your emotions and to claim the emotions that are your's versus what someone else may have shook off on you.
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”-Coco Chanel
