Dropping the F-Bomb
- Some moments just make you go “fuck.”
- For Tessa, it is a way for her to speak her mind freely. It is part of the process of expressing herself emotionally.
- Sometimes, there are just no other words to express how we’re feeling that we end up cussing.
- Rosie recalls a conversation with a friend and mentor about utilizing language efficiently in the full episode!
- Being frustrated and irritated is a very human moment. No amount of training or experience can help you in the management of emotions when you’re feeling these.
Drawing Wisdom From Rosie and Tessa’s Photoshoot
- Rosie and Tessa did a photoshoot recently for the podcast. Tessa felt awkward in front of the camera and asked Rosie for advice.
- However, Rosie wasn’t always a natural in front of the camera. She actually doesn’t like being in the spotlight. However, she does it in service of being in service.
- When she needs to be the center of attention, Rosie channels her dad, who was a vocalist.
- Conveying someone else’s energy, like someone we look up to, is a way to think with more clarity, especially when we get stuck in our thoughts and feelings.
- Channeling someone else allows us to draw wisdom from them and to zoom out from our narrow-mindedness at the moment.
The Feeling of Pressure and Overwhelm
- Pressure is self-inflicted. Being aware of the pressure you’re putting on yourself is key to moving out of the overwhelm.
- We tend to put so much weight into what other people think about us. It throws us into feeling overwhelmed and compressed.
- Sometimes, all you have to do is pause for a moment and step away before you take it out on others or lash out.
Management of Emotions through Actions
- Rosie’s solution is to list down all things you have to do, then classify them according to urgency, difficulty, and fear of doing it.
- When you restructure your list and do things one by one, you can accomplish tasks sooner.
- Notifications and reminder alerts can also cause pressure.
- When these get overwhelming, take a moment to step away. Most of the time, things aren’t actually that big of a deal.
Dealing with Frustration
- It’s a matter of perspective. Rosie shares how reminding herself of the important things helps her deal with frustration.
- Listening to music is one way to shift your energy and move into a space that allows you to tune in with yourself and be more present.
- It helps to be mindful about your own energy before interacting with other people, so you don’t inevitably interrupt somebody else’s space.
- Tune in to the full episode to hear about Rosie’s altercation with a yoga teacher.
- That story is a reminder that we falter, and that’s just being human. But we should always try to be mindful of our energy, so we don’t end up hurting other people.
