Self-regulation W hen a person is self-aware, those with high EI are able to regulate their emotions and keep them in check when needed. Self-awareness W hen a person has self-awareness, they are able to know their own strengths and weaknesses and have the understanding of how to react properly in situations and to other people. H igh Emotional Intelligence Versus Low Emotional Intelligence When it comes to the ability to understand your own emotions and the emotions of other people, high emotional intelligence is required. Naturally, a person that has high emotional intelligence are better at communication as they have a good grasp on how others are feeling and how they can properly express their emotions. High emotional intelligence does not mean that someone is always happy or in a positive mood. It simply means that the person is able to make good decisions regarding their actions when they are faced with a difficult situation. They have the ability to process their emotions in order to make decisions that aren't fueled by their feelings alone. When I was young and drinking, it was still kind of frowned upon for girls to get messy drunk, but now we see far more of it in our culture. For young girls it's almost seen as empowering or a rite of passage to get blotto drunk. And for many women on social media it seems to actually be something that they're proud of, that they need a wine to get through the day. I have a number of friends who will make comments about how much they need wine. It's a joke, but it seems to me like a weird thing to boast about.
I think that people have this impression that you can't have a good time without drinking. I see that a lot. It really scares me, the number of people who have a reliance on it and don't realise that they do. Sometimes, until you stop doing it, you don't actually know how much it's impacting you. When I was drinking I wasn't making decisions based on what I wanted. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, Parmesan, and pepper. Pour into the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring, or until the eggs are softly scrambled but still moist and creamy. Spoon small dollops of the ricotta over the eggs and drizzle with the pesto. Stir briefly to just swirl into the eggs.

L ow emotional intelligence plays a significant role in the way we interact with other people. People with low emotional intelligence often make social situations and interactions with other people tense and difficult. You can see how this would lead to difficulty analyzing people. Individuals with low EI tend to be very oblivious regarding other people's emotions and feelings. For instance, they have a hard time understanding why their friends might be upset with them or why their co-workers are annoyed.
In addition to that, they often feel like they should be the ones annoyed at other people because of other people's expectations of them to understand their feelings. While this holds true for those who have high EI, people with low EI don't have the ability to properly assess the feelings of other people. The mere topic of emotions tends to cause people with low EI to feel very exasperated as they are unable to empathize or understand why other people may feel the way they do. Due to the fact that individuals that have low EI have trouble understanding what other people's emotions are, they are often unable to feel empathy for others. They just simply do not understand what emotions the other person is feeling so it makes it very hard for them to see things from their perspective let alone empathizing. I was making them based on the feelings that I had--the shame and the guilt and feeling bad about myself--not from a place of power. That's all changed now. Liquid courage There are a million reasons why women drink, but underlying all of them is this one: alcohol works. It would be stupid to deny this. Alcohol does what we want it to in the moment. When that liquid enters our bodies, gets carried around by our blood, hits our brains and triggers all those lovely chemicals, it feels good. We're instantly warmed, relaxed, uplifted, loosened and confident. Who wouldn't want that? That's the reason why so many of us drink. Prep time: 10 minutes Total time: 20 minutes Makes 2 servings 1/2 teaspoon olive oil 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup medium salsa 1/4 cup water Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook the scallions, spinach, and cumin, covered, for 5 minutes, or until the spinach is just tender. Stir in the tomato sauce, salsa, and water. F urther, people that have low EI tend to feel that they are always right and will intensely defend their stance and refuse to hear what other people may have to say. These people tend to be pessimists and are very critical of other people's feelings. B elow we will look at a list of common attributes of people with a low level of emotional intelligence. Find themselves getting into arguments with others often Have great difficulty understanding other people's feelings and emotions Feel that other people should be less sensitive Do not find value in listening to the perspectives or feelings of other people and therefore they do not pay attention to the perspectives of others. Blame other people when things do not go as planned or when problems arise Have difficulty handling situations that involve emotions and feelings They have trouble regulating their emotions and this often leads to sudden outbursts of emotions That's the reason why so many of us keep drinking even when there are negative impacts. Because, in that moment when we take that first sip, the drug works. Of course, the feelings aren't genuine. They're chemically induced, and once the drug departs our system we get dumped back down to our normal state (or lower than normal if we've been drinking a lot and our brain receptors have downregulated) and any uncomfortable emotions and insecurities are still there. But hey, take another drink and whammo!
You're back in that lovely warm, relaxed and confident state. Of all the feelings I've heard people say alcohol gives (or gave) them, this last one--confidence--is undoubtedly one of the most common. Time and again when people explain why they drink (or drank) alcohol they talk about it making them feel confident. Charmaine admits here that when she started drinking alcohol, `I became the party girl that I wanted to be, a completely different person. It made me feel happy and confident and like I was having fun, all the things that I wanted. Bring to a simmer. Make 2 shallow indents for the eggs.

Find it difficult to maintain friendships with people as their low level of EI ultimately gets in the way Have trouble understanding the feelings of others and therefore lack empathy T here has been quite a lot of talk about empathy in this article so far, and before we go any further, I want to take some time to delve into the term deeper, as it is something that will come up over and over throughout this article. E mpathy is the ability to share someone else's feelings. It is also the ability to understand the feelings of another.
