Learning to manage your emotions is a crucial skill. No matter the situation, letting your emotions get the best of you doesn’t typically end well. However, that doesn’t mean we should shut our feelings down. Instead, it’s best to identify and analyse them first, then take action.

In this quick episode of You Are Not A Frog, I discuss difficult, negative emotions and how to handle them. We tackle what these emotions are and understand why we get them. I will also give tips on discerning whether you need to act or can safely ignore them.

If you’re struggling to manage overwhelming negative emotions, this episode is for you.
