Managing Your Emotions
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Liz performed poorly on a big math test for which she had spent a great deal of time preparing. She felt very sad and went to bed early. The next day she still felt sad. She decided to talk to her mother about how she felt.
2     The state in which a person deals with everyday life is called that individual's mental health. A person with good mental health has high self-esteem and is able to be part of healthy relationships. A person who is mentally healthy must be emotionally healthy. People who are both mentally and emotionally healthy have a sense of control, have the ability to endure failures, can see things in a positive way, and can express emotions in a healthy way. Liz is such a person. It was not fun to feel sad, but she knew how to handle that.
3     Mentally and emotionally healthy people are more likely to become the best they can be. A famous psychologist named Abraham Maslow made a hierarchy of needs. He said these needs had to be satisfied in order so the person can get the most out of life. A person has to have food, water, sleep, and exercise. Then the person needs shelter. A person needs love, affection, and acceptance. Then the person needs self-respect. Finally, a person can aim to be the best.
4     Along the way of aiming to be the best, you may experience many emotions or feelings. Emotions aren't good or bad. However, it is important to express them in a constructive way. People learn to express their feelings by watching those around them. Some people deal with anger by throwing things. Maybe you learned how to deal with your feelings in this negative way. However, practice will let you express feelings in a positive way.
