Emotional intelligence is not about discussing your feelings in a circle & crying all day.
The baby brains do not understand this.
'So what is it then?'
Emotional intelligence is when your mind has mastery & understanding over your emotions.
You will rot.
Don't you see what's happening?
You are an emotional creature at the core, not a logical one.
'But my mommy said I was logical tho!'
And your mommy misinformed you 👇
Think about sales.
'Really? I could have sworn it was the other way around.'
Let me dig a little deeper into this example.
And I can name 10 different laptops that are better than the Mac.
But if you are an Apple fan, all the facts that I'm throwing at you about RAM, processing speed, operating system will fly over your head.
'Whoa. You're right!'
And this is just one of many examples of how you feel first than think after.
Don't you see?
True intelligence is when your mind has power over your emotions.
You are no longer the impulsive creature that blindly follows disruptive emotions.
Only then will anxiety, sadness, anger etc make much more sense.
Once you understand your internal world, now you can understand someone else's internal world.
