Emotions can be a tricky thing to understand, but it becomes easier when we consider that our emotions are fueled by our thoughts.
If we THINK negatively about ourselves, we will FEEL badly about ourselves.
If we focus on the negative in our lives, our lives will seem to have a negative theme. It’s all about what we focus on the most that determines how we feel.
Think about the last time your day took a sudden nosedive because of a "simple switch" of thought.
One of the ways I've learnt to be emotionally strong is to occupy my mind with every single promise that GOD has made to be in the bible. When my thought is filled with GOD'S word, where's the room to feel unhappy?
