[TEST] HOW GOOD IS YOUR EMOTIONAL CONTROL?

03 Jul 2019    Anxiety Trauma Life changes Fear    2 comments

Are you resisting the things in your life that you simply can’t change? And is this resistance a sign of codependency?

The emotions that we stuff deep inside are by definition the emotions that we aren’t allowing ourselves to feel. And trying to control what we feel is rooted deeply in fear and feeling threatened.

World renowned author, spiritual guide, and mental health advocate Deepak Chopra has written the following quiz to help you get a sense of how much you are trying to control your emotional state in what may be an unhealthy way. It only takes about five minutes to do this. 

Adapted from the book Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, by Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Let’s get started. Answer Yes or No to the following 30 questions. Some of the statements may not seem very flattering, but try to be completely honest. This test should take around 4 minutes.

Its very difficult because of everything being through social media. Moreover, the isolation i was harboring before has been reactivated in large by the Pandemic, so I don't talk to many people or have conversations that I feel people care or are listening. They are in their own world of thoughts..Its about who's smarter, and I just want to let go and be happy but conversations don't go well, so I have severe social anxiety. I feel I have to act tough because of my baby side. My brain now is trained and stuck in isolation of my own mixed thoughts.. and I kind of feel that everyone is against me.. its me against the world, which is really bad. People aren't as sensitive, they play the game, and I now am like stuck.. be transparent or act so that I don't get hurt and I play the game. Its always a catch 22 with me, conflicts and a lot of negativity because of how I am, and I feel others are. I expect people to act in certain ways. I wind up being like a robot to hide feelings. Overall, I don't really enjoy things and am finding it hard to be 'human' because that becomes a detriment. People expect things to be perfect, I can't be perfect with everything. Its a complex situation. I can't keep moving forward because I don't care about being perfect anymore like I was when I was younger.
