How do I manage difficult emotions?

You might be having some confusing emotions if you’re worried about harmful sexual behaviour, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.

Here are some ways you can try to manage your feelings.  It’s important to try a few out and see what works best for you. Everybody is different and different ways of coping will work better for some people than others.

The more you practice these activities, even when you’re feeling calm, the better they’ll help you manage your emotions. 

You could try starting each day with one of the activities. Or doing each one every week on a particular day – no matter how you’re feeling at the time.
