The subject of emotion is a touchy one, as well as an emotional
one isn’t it?
We all have met people that
seem to be with out emotion and I'm sure we have all met a lot of people that seem to have acquired the extra emotion floating around because it’s always pouring out. It never seems to be distributed properly, does it?
There are two different sides to emotion. You have emotion that is better described as passion, but its emotion all the same. Then
you have emotion that is a reflection of how you feel. Be it sad, happy, angry, scared, love or hate. What’s the main difference between all these emotions, because in the big scheme of things they appear to be a lot alike?
Fear, (being scared) and excitement mirror each other exactly, as do love and hate. The difference between the two is the context in which they are felt
and expressed. If you ask someone how they feel in love, the list of “feelings” they describe are similar in nature to hate.
Both love and hate are strong emotions and take a toll on the owner. In the beginning stages, the feeling is all consuming and it’s hard to concentrate or think about anything other than
the object of your emotion. As time passes the “high” steadies out to be a pulse if you will, that keeps a constant, repetitive level of devotion. This is where a lot of people lose interest or in the case of hatred, forgive or forget. It is only
the true of heart that may pass or you get to be old and talk about how much you can’t stand the person you love with all your heart.
