Sadly, some emotionally distressed people may infect our emotions within moments of us being in their company. After some exposure, everyone around those people may begin to feel sick.
Emotionally distressed people may sometimes prefer to remain distressed, particularly if it means them having to deal with their emotions. Our emotions aren’t the easiest thing to deal with. It also depends on the people and how distressed they are and whether they want to change. Despite all attempts from us to help them, perhaps they would rather not change.
That said, emotionally distressed people can grow into healthier people, just by accepting they need help and staying open minded enough to allow other people to help them. It’s important that we take responsibility for our own behaviour and emotional health.
Those emotionally distressed will always continue to make excuses or blame others for their lives, until they take control for themselves. They make everything about others and nothing about themselves. Everything becomes personal.
Finally, they will avoid to take responsibility for themselves at all costs as their state of mind will start to make them ill; although they won’t always know they’re emotionally distressed.
