Yes, you got over a heartbreak, and you believe that nothing can move you now. But does that mean you are emotionally stable? If you have these traits, you are emotionally unstable, says psychologist Dr Anirban Bhattacharjee.
You are manipulative: ‘If you love me then will you do this for me?’ How many times have you used this line? Manipulating your friends, family, and your mates is a sign of emotional instability.
You seek revenge: Do you find yourself devoting your energy on settling scores? Only if you are insecure, you make an effort of hitting back. If you are insecure and want to prove a point, you are emotionally unstable.
You are always angry: If you are always angry because things are not working out your way, you are emotionally weak. You should learn to take things easy and work towards solving your problem instead of always being in a rage.
You make decisions based on your feelings: ‘I don’t like going to the office so that I will quit my job.’ If you use your feelings as a compass to make decisions, you are emotionally unstable. Be rational and do not make hasty decisions based on your emotions.
You do not forgive: Keeping bitterness in your mind only makes you emotionally unstable. Yes, it takes a strong heart to forgive, but forgiveness is a quality which makes it easier for you to move on.
You are afraid to love: Yes, you might be heartbroken, but if you are afraid to love you are not stable emotionally. Your past should not define your present and your future. Do n't be scared to love.
You seek sympathy: This is common on social media. We have seen people writing their sorrow stories just to get that extra attention. If you are someone who likes to add tears to eyes, just to get a prolong hug, you are emotionally weak.
You lean on to addiction: Do you turn on to alcohol and drugs when times are tough? Using an addiction to escape the reality of life can be a sign that you are emotionally unstable. Remember leaning on addiction will not solve any issues. You need to confront it.
