18. Please describe your emotions.
Wavy blessings of humanity.
Strong, overwhelming, violent, passionate, cruel, lovely, overbearing, up and down, human.
I mean I don't have a degree in meteorology - if I did maybe I could then explain or describe my emotions, which to me are as complex and elusive as weather patterns.
My emotions are pretty even-keeled. They like to sneak out in physical ways.
Right now, this moment? I don’t know how to fully describe a thought process—it’s like a train that picks up cars on the way to the station. My emotions are running high and low.
Somewhat obsessive, pleased, sad, lonely, full of love --- all of them. All the emotions. Sometimes turned to 11.
Not a radical pendulum. I'm a pessimistic optimist. I don't go around with a black cloud, yet I do anticipate the worst. What's that Tammy Wynette song? 'I wound easy, but I heal fast.'
Also, a work in progress.
My emotions have a flair for the dramatic.
high and low. very passionate and loving and also prone to suicidal depressions since youth.
caring & present
I come from a family of criers. I will cry at weddings, but I also cried at the series finale of What Not To Wear, so there’s that.
I wish I was in better control of them, but I’m learning.
I'm in a constant state of longing.
Contained. I try to present a calm and collected presence to the world, but I'm very sensitive. I'm not calm and collected on the inside.
I'm a crier and unashamed of it. I cry at silly things all the time. It's very refreshing.

When I said "my wild feelings" that's a good way to do it. I feel this acutely and am a bit of a melancholic, in that I reflect often upon death and sadness, and what life means, sometimes inspired by unlikely everyday details. Then sometimes I wish I wasn't this way, as it really does get in the way.
Again, you with the crazy questions! I feel great when I’m ovulating, super sexy and attractive, and then want to go all Medea on the day before I bleed. I have a great life even with myNone of your beeswax. issues. I tell my kids, “Mommy is crazy in a good way.”
I’m very sensitive, for better or worse. I take pleasure in listening to and advising my friends, but feel guilty leaning too heavily on them when I'm blue. I’m happiest one-on-one or in a small, close group. I’m prone to funks and self-doubt. I’m most comfortable relating to my surroundings on an emotional level. Sometimes, I wonder if this is something I should have outgrown.
So much (too much?) passion.
