The exposure of the people to media, social media has increased the vulnerability of people very much. There is a tendency to portray one's best self in front of others which only reflects the positive aspect of one's life. This action affects not only the person who is presenting self but indirectly also the people you watch them on social media. People with low esteem tend to get affected by the people around them and start comparing their lives with those they are socially connected to. Thus, there are already a lot of unsaid and unexplained pressures present in our day to day lives. Emotions therefore have a huge impact on each and everyone's lives. They affect directly as well as indirectly. Directly they affect one's own self-awareness with respect to what and how they feel and how well can they take charge of their emotions and indirectly they affect the other people they interact with and deal with in their personal and professional lives. Handling and dealing the emotions in professional lives is the key to professional success especially in professions where the major dealing is with people. Healthcare is one such profession and physicians and nurses as well as other healthcare providers are the professionals who need to carry out their duties while dealing with people as they are their touch points of services to be rendered to.
