Just like a sneeze, we can catch the bad thoughts of others that can potentially misinform our decisions. I wonder if you have ever stopped to wonder why something so simple and unimportant made you so angry and anxious enough you wanted to break out in tears? Or if you stopped to think this behaviour had been witnessed by you and then made you feel incredibly uneasy, to repeat observed behaviour that wasn't even yours in the first place?
Daniel Colman (1996) stated that "anger builds on anger", I would take it further and say like anxiety it can appear contagious unless contained. And that keeping a lid on it is one of ours and society's biggest challenges.
To combat this, it's a suggestion of soothing the endless loop of what some term as melodrama or dissociative behaviour and that these thoughts being affected is a natural human trait, it's about letting it out in controlled and intelligent ways. And about protecting your own boundaries and limiting the discovery of these very raw emotions from those that could potentially do you more harm than good, especially in business.
Raw and very honest emotions should really be saved for those who care most about you and for those who can support you through, or a confidential session with your therapist.
