    They Can Hurt Or They Can Heal

    At the end of the day what do we all want? For me it's quite simple - to love and be loved in return. To know my basic needs of food and shelter will always be met. To have a few people on my side and me on theirs. To show who I am and see who you are, without fear of rejection...

    Sometimes we are happy,

    sometimes we are sad, sometimes we are energetic sometimes we just have that feeling of being lazy. These are but just a few kinds of emotion we have in life. One moment we are like this, the next moment we are like that. That makes our life exciting and not boring. It means we...

    For me personally I live on emotions,

    I base my life and guid myself through what I feel- yeah it's negative(another emotion!) but it's how I live. Does anyone else see emotions as a vital part of every second life?

    Understanding Emotions/ Understanding Your Self

    We're just as much feeling beings as we are thinking. Emotions and feelings are just as important a part of our being as logic and reasoning. The fact that we do not understand our emotions as well as we do our thoughts does not mean that we should dismiss them. You're not meant...

    Emotions are very powerful.

    They sometimes override everything else...leading to rash and mistaken decisions. We get caught up in the moment and....... It's when we look back we see where we went off the path, then comes more emotions... It's human...it's who we are.

    Emotions, I feel, are what connects,

    or binds, us all together. Our most powerful asset. Emotions are the cornerstone on which everything is built around. If I were to imagine a world without emotions, I would only find emptiness and void. So I don't dare to imagine it.

    because they allow us to be happy, sad or mad. Emotions allow us to feel and act on that feeling.

    Emotions can send youhurtling over the edge.

    They can be so intense that you literally, physically feel the reaction. It's good to feel them though, even if they are so intense that you can't handle it, it is better than feeling nothing.
