Emotions

Today, I'll be delving into the mental health corner. Yeah, you read that right, emotions.
Emotions are the strong, immediate reactions that you feel in response to an experience. Different types of emotions include love, anger, frustration, hostility, fear, anxiety, jealousy, envy, grief, and so on.
The ability to understand and express your emotions builds your self confidence and helps you to communicate well with others. It also helps you to understand others better. These abilities contribute to your mental health.
1. LOVE
Love is a strong feeling or deep concern for another person. Friendship is one form of love. You may think of friendship as just a liking but. True friends feel loyal towards each other and share interests and support. Family love is one of the strongest feelings human beings can experience. It grows out of many years of living together.
Love in marriage between a man and a woman is one of the deepest kinds of love two people can share. This type of love involves promises to each other about all parts of live.
Love is a bond that all humanity have in common.
2. ANGER
Anger is a strong feeling of displeasure. It may take different forms.
3. FRUSTRATION
Frustration is a feeling of disappointment.
4. HOSTILITY
Hostility is feeling and behaving in an unfriendly way.
5. FEAR
Fear is a scared feeling.
6. ANXIETY
Anxiety is the fear of the future or the unknown.
7. JEALOUSY
Jealousy is the fear of losing something you already have.
8. ENVY
Envy is the fear that you cannot get what someone else has.
9. GRIEF
Grief is a deep sorrow that is caused by the loss of someone or something you cannot get back.
STAGES OF GRIEF
1) Shock and disbelief
Temporary retreat from hurtful events accompanied by feeling of emotional numb, which may last a few hours or days.
2) Emotional release
May cry, although crying is a healthy release. It may become hysterical.
3) Depression and loneliness
Feels out of contact with daily events.
4) Physical distress
May lose appetite, develop indigestion, high blood pressure, rapid heart beat or changes in body temperature.
5) Panic
Actions may lack clear direction, sometimes accompanied by moments of disbelief.
6) Guilt
Feels guilty that nothing can be done to change the past relationship; regret and wishful thinking are common at this stage.
7) Hostility and resentment
May express resentment towards doctors, friends or even towards lost loved ones.
8) Dejection
Unable to return to usual activities; all activities seem impossible and difficult.
9) Reconciliation
Begins positive steps to adjust to life without lost loved ones.
10) Adaptation
Realizes that life can continue. Begins search for new relationships, but not as a substitute for lost loved ones. New relations and activities will provide new reasons to continue living.
