We cannot control our emotions at the moments they happen though sometimes we can take the time to look at the things we take for granted that provoke these emotions and decide if our basic understanding of a situation if correct. But when we have a feeling, it is just our feelings and there is no such thing as being "too emotional." We all have the emotions we have, whatever they are. There is such a thing as expressing emotions inappropriately, such as the guy who punches someone in the face for expressing an opinion in a bar.<br />
<br />
If you have the idea that you are "too emotional," there are two possible reasons you feel this way. First, you have not learned how to express your emotions in an appropriate manner instead of in a way that is considered rude or hostile or unmannerly. This is just a social skill and that level of self-control can be learned through practice. Second, someone who is uncomfortable with the emotions you express has decided you are "too emotional" and never fails to tell you about it; it might even be more than one person in your life. These people have no right to tell you how emotional to be or what emotions to have; it would be more honest if they simply told you that they wished you did not feel like that or wished you did not tell them about it. Most often, it's bulllies who tell us we are being "too emotional" so consider this as a possibility in your life. Maybe they just don't like your reactions to their bullying or maybe they can't endure the idea of you having the right to criticize them.<br />
<br />
So, ask yourself, is it your own immaturity in where, when and how you express yourself? If so, practice withholding the ex<x>pression of your emotions in inappropriate circumstances and practice expressing your feelings in a mannerly, but clear, way. If it's just social bullying, let them know you do not allow others to dictate your feelings or their ex<x>pression.

Like most people who have this complaint, your problem isn't in being "too emotional", but rather not having control over emotions that serve no purpose other than to create more drama around you. Here's a step by step guide to eliminate such behavior.<br />
<br />
1. Stop watching tv. It's giving you a really shïtty sc<x>ript to read.<br />
2. Stop worrying about what other people think. You have enough of your own issues to care about theirs.<br />
3. Learn to feel instead of think. 90% of your brain activity is a form of self torture, will solves nothing and aren't even ex<x>pressions of feeling as much as they are hysterical outbursts.<br />
4. Get away from your parents, who will just perpetuate the infantile reactions.<br />
5. Drop the anger, fear and other forms of self-BS. Sometimes when we feel fearful, we cover it up with anger. In this way, emotions can be liberating or confining. Be a clear window for your emotions to shine through, and you will learn to enjoy them instead of fear them. <br />
<br />
This is a rather short guide for now but should get you from your front door to a psychotherapist's office for further brain de-programming.
