    It's a love/hate thing. You can't get rid of them, and occasionally you're thankful for them. My emotions are usually very active and noticeable, they help me light up the day.

    I saw this group was created and I had to laugh. I am def. ruled and controlled by my emotions. Sometimes, I hate it, but then other times it comes in handy. I hate it because if I don't feel like doing something, I can't force myself to do it. If I am depressed or down in...

    We all are, every single second of our lives. If we did not have emotions, we would either be dead or robot's. We need emotions to feel.

    It's A Little Pathetic

    Emotions are such weird things. I have NO control over them. Only over their display, mostly. But really, I can't always reason why a particular emotion is there. It's just there. And I have to deal with it.

    Buckle Up For A Bumpy Ride

    Being ruled by my emotions makes one hell of a rollercoaster ride. Up down up down. I know I shouldn't let my emotions run me all the time but that's just the way I am. It's hell. I wish I could just turn off my feelings sometimes it would make my life a lot easier.

    The Good And The Bad....

    I suppose the bad thing about being ruled by emotions is that sometimes you just have to struggle to get rational. Fortunately I can bring the rational side into the equation and take the long way out. But the best thing is when all is good,... it's very good!!

    People tell me to get control, but I can't hide my emotions.  I don't freak out and cry in public, but if I'm in a bad mood, I can't fake happiness.  It's something that I've tried really hard to get under control.
