307 // How to Stop Emotional Dumping
Hello and welcome to episode 307 of The Mindful Kind podcast.
In this episode, you'll learn about emotional dumping and strategies to help you stop yourself from doing it too much!
I learned about the concept of emotional dumping in Dr Nicole LePera's book, How to Do The Work.
Here are the strategies I shared in the episode:
1: Ask for someone's permission before you start talking about any intense emotional experiences
2: Find a variety of ways to cope with your emotions, such as meditating, journaling, and exercising
3: Talk to different people about your emotions, rather than relying on just one person and do your best to find solutions, instead of just talking about intense emotional experiences
If you feel like other people are regularly "emotionally dumping" on you, try implementing more boundaries. You can learn about this in episodes 254, 255, and 258 of The Mindful Kind podcast.
Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.
