You have to give this to the emotionally stable people—they do not break down easily and can handle situations better. Psychologist Dr Anirban Bhattacharjee jots down a few traits of emotionally strong people. Go through all the slides to find out if you are one.
You do not get angry: Even in times of stress, you choose to stay calm and try to handle situations smoothly instead of blaming and yelling at others.
You apologise: When you know that you have made a mistake, you apologise. You know it in your mind that you will not become a smaller person by apologising.
You listen to your instincts: You follow your instincts to guide your judgements. You learn to follow your instincts from the experiences you have gained.
You don’t dwell in the past: Instead of living in the past and feeling guilty of your mistakes, you move on. You have it clear in your head that life goes on.
You do not hold grudges: You understand that holding grudges can never be a solution to a problem. You use your wits to resolve a problem.
You do not encourage negativity: You are someone who avoids believing anything negative that has been told. You never make assumptions without being acutely aware of the situations.
You do not blame circumstances: You understand when something is beyond your control, and you do not blame circumstances on external things.
You work towards your flaws: You always feel that there is room for improvement and you continually strive to improve your relationship or a situation.
You let others take the lead: Instead of making your importance felt, you sit back, relax and let others take the lead. You, however, give them your full support if they need.
You understand the importance of time: You chose to spend your time doing something productive so that you and others around you can benefit from it. Wasting your time is a big no for you.
