It's not so much a way of coping with emotions I guess as more troubling thoughts, but when I'm experiencing distressing thoughts I find reciting number sequences helps to focus the mind, generally either mentally listing prime numbers, or more simply looping over 12345432...

These links will help me greatly I didn't realize I was an extra sensitive person until I read a few of them they explained me perfectly and made me understand a lot of the problems in my life.

I greatly thank you for the help. I think this might just help me be a better person to myself even.

Thankful

My best coping mechanism regarding emotions is simply to dismiss the thoughts that elicit the emotions, and look right at the emotions themselves. When I cut off the power supply, the emotions begin to dissolve immediately. If the triggering thought or circumstance is strong enough, I might have to do this several times because it soon returns, but with practice this technique really does help me. Also, when I do this repeatedly, I begin to realize that the thought, which triggers the emotion, is secondary to my mind's attachment to the emotion. I don't have to look far to find another trigger if I'm in that frame of mind.

This looks great. It will take me a minute to go through all this and I'm new and dont know what im doing yet. But I am out of control and wonder if I really can apply something to help.

That's interesting I think I do that to. Why? Like preoccupies the crazy thinking. I cant find it to generally calm my mind though more to distract. Wht else do you do to get your brain to stop

Have you looked into CBT? A lot of it is about re-programming your thoughts. The ones that run around in your head and trigger certain emotions. I find it very hard to stop them. But that is key, I read that emotions are an indication that something is happening. I think it is helpful to write down all the thoughts that are causing the emotions and then it might be easier to stop them.. or rewrite them in your head. This all sounds easy when i explain it, but it is something that I am struggling with. The trouble with having a strong emotion is that you feel it is justified and so you don't normally think to rationalize the emotion in that moment. But even if you do it the following day, it can help. It takes a lot of work.
