What is Emotional intelligence?
Emotions are the expression of feeling which makes us different from each other. Each person feels different in the same situation or some may feel the same but their way of expression will be different. Many times we have heard from others like don’t be so emotional if you become so emotional people may miss use you, Specifically when it comes to males we become so stereotypical that males can’t be so emotional they can’t cry, they can’t behave childish, But …… Why?
So now the question comes that Do we need to express our emotions or not?
Actually, without understanding, we start hiding our emotions that could be very harmful in our later life and it can also impact our mental & physical health. Again back to squire what we need to do? Here let’s have more clarity about how to express our emotions. To have an understanding of it, here the role comes of Emotional intelligence.
