Our emotions are all interconnected to serve a purpose, so the best we can do is try to understand and control them. After all, Human Beings are emotional creatures, it’s written all over our faces.
Most times when someone is trying to advise us, instead of listening we are talking over them. Imagine how much further we could be if only we would listen, but, paying attention depends on how we feel about this or that.
My daily emotions have been in cahoots with far too many attitudes, often leaving a mixed bag of feelings that ranged from giddy to sad, mellow too anxious, and from just okay to ecstatic. I could be energized, blissful, calm, mean, mad, or vindictive in a short span of time. In fact, we all have an abundance of emotions that make us who we are as human beings.
The most important emotion for me is happiness, followed by sadness, fear, disgust, anger, and surprise. Some of them hit harder than others but in no particular order, it all depends on how we feel at that exact moment. Let me remind you of the fact the most of us are good at blowing up little things, then blaming it on getting up on the wrong side of the bed.
When we are happy, you can hear it in our tone of voice and see it in our facial/body expressions, such as smiling and non-aggressive body language. The old sparkle in the eye thing.
Our happiness serves a special purpose that is directly related to our health; this is true because happiness reduces stress. Did you know happiness is not a goal, it’s an experience? Remember that old saying, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened?
The fun begins when we learn we are better than what we think of ourselves, but only if we don’t become too vain. Did you know it’s the positivity that makes life better for all of us? More importantly, did you know others are not obligated to be unhappy just because you are?
We all have our crosses to bear, plus we are not equipped to take on everyone’s problems. Just do what you can, there is joy in helping, which brings about personal satisfaction which can easily put a smile on your face.
Sadness has its purpose; it balances out happiness. If it were not for sadness, happiness would have no meaning; there would be nothing to measure it by. Feeling sad is a part of life, and so is crying, but have you ever noticed how hard it is to breathe when you’re crying?
KeepInspiringMe.com hit the nail on the head the way they married the meaning of Sadness and Happiness. “Sadness gives us depth, happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots, and happiness gives branches.”
Fear is the path to the dark side that leads to anger, and that anger leads to hate, which leads to suffering. David G. Roberts tells us, Everything we want is on the other side of fear. Fear is our adversary if we don’t face it, it becomes our limits.
Fear a powerful emotion, often leaves us with little to no choice; fight or flee. The thing is you must make a decision. The good news is fear can only go as far as the mind allows, although some let their fear bring them to total obliteration. By the way, thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.
Did you know fear kills more dreams than failure ever will?
To conquer fear you must be willing to confront the danger, and the task to get to the other side where growth awaits. I understand fear will always be with us, but if you don’t resist fear it will overtake you. Just to be clear, Fear is an emotion that comes from uncertainly; don’t allow it to overpower your intelligence.
Sameness is the mother of disgust; variety the cure. Francesco Petrarch.
Disgust can originate from things like an unpleasant taste, sight or smell, poor hygiene, even observing others can bring about disgust, which can also be triggered by physical reactions such as vomiting or retching.
In my opinion, egoism is the most disgusting thing I know, so for me, I think being disgusted is an appropriate response to an egotist.
Anger, is one of the most powerful of all emotions, and it’s fueled by feelings of agitation, coupled with hostility and frustration towards others. This is another emotion that carries the fight or flight choices. Unlike fear in my opinion, it’s best to flee.
It’s easy to recognize anger; glaring at people coupled with yelling, turning red, sweating, hitting, and or throwing things. Anger becomes a real problem when it becomes dangerous to others, coupled with strong aggression, abuse, or violence. Emotional anger can be mental as well as physical.
The word anger is only one letter short of danger, and holding on to it is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else, and you are the one who gets burned. Anger is also your enemy Control it, for he who makes you angry control and conquers you.
Surprise a response following something unexpected.
This emotion is all over the place, it can be positive, negative, or neutral. A surprise is like when someone lunges at you expectantly. What I love most about surprises is You’ll be surprised at how far you can go past the point where you thought it would end.
Simply put, emotions all boil down to self-control, which creates strength, and only then can calmness is mastered. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Do not allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.
It’s Something To Think About!
JESUS IS LORD!
