Emotions are a by-product of what is going on in your head and your life (and in my case…what I eat/drink).
In this context, I am broadly dividing this into happy and sad.
I am not dealing with all other emotions in between.
No, I did not get that definition from Urban dictionary or Wikipedia. It is just something I came up with.
After all, I have lived on earth for a few decades and been on both the giving and receiving ends of emotional drama and this is what I have observed:
1 There is nothing wrong with being emotional. It is how a person provides an outlet to that emotion that concerns people around them.
2 It is impossible to be happy all the time. Anyone who appears to be has a serious problem.
3 It is also impossible to be sad all the time. The same serious problem theory also applies in this case.
4 When someone is feeling sad, the worst thing you can tell them is “cheer up” or “I am sure you can find something to be happy about”.
5 Sometimes, we need to allow ourselves feel certain emotions and learn to get ourselves out of a funk.
No one is responsible for your happiness or sadness…well, no one but you.
Happiness and sadness are a by product of certain actions we take. Or food we eat. Or drinks/substances we ingest.
