Staying Sane: EMOTIONS

Hey wordpressers,

What makes you happy? Many of us may say music. Music definitely affects our mood immensely. To others, happiness comes from nature. The sun shining, trees swaying, rain dropping.. Many people feel happiness with the positive energy they received from the people around them. The flow of optimism around the world they surround themselves gives them this lively energy. Others find happiness in peace. Quiet and contentment brings joy into their life. We all have our own happiness.

However, do you believe sadness is necessary for us to appreciate our happiness? That maybe if joy is in continuum, we may feel bored of it, or we may not even like its presence… Meaning we may try to tear ourselves up, bringing out our insecurities and imperfections, just to feel sane.

Being happy all day every day may make us feel robotic, where the only emotions we can show to the world are smiles and laughters. We forget that there are other emotions out there that makes the world go round. Emotions that defines us as human beings.

So if you have been sad, angry, poker faced for so long now, do not worry. You need to feel those to appreciate happiness in the future. These emotions also enables us to soak in this important lesson in life called perseverance.

Perseverance are not only for the sad ones. They are also for the people who are agitated, waiting, or even the people who are just riding along with life… These emotions enables us to feel and learn in life. Happiness, sadness, anger, neutrality, and mixed emotions keeps us sane, for our heart feels and our minds process…

Why do we feel?

Hey wordpressers,

Why do we feel? This question you can answer based on experience, science, and psychology. Different thoughts run through our minds triggering some kind of emotional response or sometimes it is not even the thoughts, sometimes concentration gives you this sense of relaxation. I took a semester of yoga and joined a couple of yoga classes before, and the main goal is usually clearing the mind.

When your mind is clear, you still feel. You feel refreshed or sometimes you even get to a complete mode of relaxation that you fall asleep. Hopefully not in yoga class, but some do it unintentionally. Hehe!

However, when there is absolutely nothing on your mind, for that quick moment you are pain and problem free. It is when your body is finally rested. These are the times when for once, you stopped worrying and focused on a fresh new slate.

So we feel. We feel any sensation clinging to our skins, every word shot to our hearts, and the touches sends messages to our minds. These feelings triggering emotions causing tears, laughter, love, and hate, that when misused shuts down. So make use of those emotions carefully and take care of yourself, because when abused, numbness will take over, and those are never fun…
