What is emotional responsibility and how do you use it?

Having emotional responsibility means building consistent relationships or connectionsequally and with empathy.

Emotional responsibility consists in taking into account the consequences of one’s actions on the other and in thinking of the partner, friend or family member before making decisions likely to affect them. It also involves taking ownership of our actions, not being, and should not be, submissive.

    Perfect relationships or emotional responsibility?

    There are no magic recipes for a perfect relationship. To have a responsible relationship, it is necessary to understand that this connection consists of more than one person. This is why we must flee egocentrism and use empathy.

    It should be clear that any relationship will have complications or problems; the important thing is how to manage them. Consider that every action will have a consequencebecause all our actions have a consequence and that’s why we have to be empathetic to value.

    What is assertive communication?

    Affective responsibility consists of being able to say what bothers us and what we think about preventing and overcoming conflicts. It is also speak directly with clarity and honestyestablish what is allowed and what is not and encourage dialogue, because negotiation through communication is the solution to a dispute.

      It’s not an emotional responsibility…

      • Invalidate the emotions of the other, push the limits.
      • Playing with other people’s illusions or believing that others can guess what we feel, need or think.
      • A person who is not responsible cannot make or make a commitment, has frequent mood swings for seemingly no reason, has no control over his own thoughts and emotions, but does his best to control his loved ones and outside.

      If we detect this attitude it is us, we have to fix it.

        What is the ghost?

        Ghosting involves severing a relationship without warning. This attitude only reflects a lack of communication and attention to others.

        In this sense, emotional responsibility dictates that we have to deal with a breakup sincerely, however painful it may be. Running away from this situation is all it takes to hurt the other person.

        Ghosting also happens when you meet someone. It does not matter whether it is a causal relationship or an open relationship, every bond needs emotional accountability.

        The most important thing is that all parties in a relationship agree with this connection, it is the best way to make any type of connection that connects us to other people work properly.

          It’s not about avoiding each other’s pain at all costsnor to prioritize their needs and desires to the detriment of ours, but by:

          • Think about what you want and why you want it.
          • Think about what you are going to say and how someone else will react.
          • Keep good intentions.
          • Be honest, but not cruel.
