    Every Emotion Has A Meaning...

    As difficult as it sounds, it is better to live the emotions I have than have nothing in the heart. If I close to everything and feel no pain, not knowing myself or others because is uncomfortable, then I deprive myself of everything I could do. I throw away the chance to live...

    What is fear? This constant feeling of being

    'scared' It's a torturous feeling if you do not know how to control it. In other words, Fear is a beast that needs to be defeated. It is an emotion that will probably kill me..

    I know emotions are powerful

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

    Emotions are powerful; they affect our day to day decisions, they affect our heart, and they affect our mind.   Sometimes I think that my emotions are the most powerful control of my mind.  What I mean by that is that the decisions I make are...

    but if you put them into the wrong hands they can be played with.

    Anger sadly has a strong hold over me.

    I can go from 0 to 200 in seconds and it doesn't even have to be over something serious sometimes. I'm used to being on edge and defensive all the time about everything. I say things and do things in the heat of the moment that I most times end up regretting. There's so much...

    They run us, they rule every fibre in us.

    ... we hate them, we love them, we need them to make us human... We try to shut them out, close them out, turn them off or just push them away, but we are defenseless against them, they are their own force with in us.... They are kind, they are cruel, they can be hard, or...

    Falling, crying and screaming.

    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, 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.

    I feel as though the number of emotions one

    reacts to has dwindled in this generation. When one is happy, others take notice, and might walk over and speak to them. When one is laughing, others want to hear the joke. But when one is sad or angry, others avoid that person. They simply believe the sad or angry person has...

    Emotions are so powerful they are annoying.

    They influence your actions and mental state, be it good or bad. Then again, emotionless creatures wouldn't be fun to interact with.

    After not feeling my emotions

    for a little while I can physically feel knots in my back popping or dissipating when I allow myself to feel again. Emotions are powerful and will manifest physical problems if not felt and given attention.

    Emotions are a gift too.

    When I listen to certain music, I can feel heaven. When I am in love, I can feel heaven. When I look into my baby's eyes, I can feel heaven. I experience, fully. And I can create. I can make emotion. And it is beyond you. You without emotion, you miss out.
