It is said that people who have pets have higher emotional intelligence because they can manage emotions well. This is also expressed by the Healthline page, having a pet has a positive impact on mental health for many people.
People with pets often feel less lonely, find it easier to manage stress, and experience fewer symptoms of depression. Frequent interactions with pets, such as talking to them or playing with them, can make you feel better.
Not infrequently you also often confide in pets so that stress is reduced. This behavior is a good way to manage emotions. And good emotional regulation, as noted above, is a key sign of emotional intelligence.

Even if you don’t think you have high emotional intelligence, you don’t need to be discouraged, Beauties. Because emotional intelligence can be sharpened and improved.
One of them maybe you can start to have a pet at home. Apart from being a friend, you can avoid stress and have good emotional management.
