How do I stop being so emotional?

I feel things very passionately and it can sometimes make me a little dramatic, like the situation is a scene from a soap opera. Truth is this is affecting my relationships with friends. They tell me a lot I need to calm down with my feelings. As of late this has gotten so bad that, of my 4 closest friends, 1 stopped talking to me completely, 1 almost stopped talking to me completely, 2 I now have a strained friendship with, and 1 I'm still close to. This has to stop.

  • What is it that makes you emotional?
    In order to get you to stop, first you must ask why you get so emotional.
    Then you need to step back, take a couple breaths and remember to explain why you feel a certain way.
    Also remember that it's just a bad habit, and all bad habits take determination and time to fix.
    Like how I asked how not to be a pushover- you remind yourself why that behavior is bad, and replace it with another behavior.
    And if you feel as if you cannot control this yourself, seek help from a therapist.

    • Most of my emotional moments are caused by a fear of abandonment or replacement. If I feel like either of those things are happening or are about to happen I become really unstable.

    • Ah. Why are you so scared of being abandoned?
