18. Please describe your emotions.
Up and down. Rollercoaster.
a jagged lunar landscape with the occasional luscious oasis
Anxious, affectionate, regretful, envious.
All over the place
My emotions are strong. I get high on excitement, and I drown in sadness and self-doubt. They don't swing very quickly all the time (though they can), so unless something happens to change an emotion, I will usually sit in it for a while. I find my emotions are most affected by my interactions with people (and my thoughts about those interactions afterward). They aren't usually as strong if I'm just by myself.
A lot of things make me happy but also sad. I get frustrated very easily but it doesn't take much to make me laugh either!
When I was a child I was cheerful but level-headed, from puberty through my thirties, a bit subject to hormonal mood-swings, and now that I am in my late-forties I would say that I have returned back to cheerful but level-headed again.
roller coaster. really big lows - really bad. effervescent when I'm good. sleeplessness. harsh - can be vindictive. generous.
I had a diagnosis of a bipolar mood disorder just over two years ago. It's a diagnosis that has been countered by another professional since then and it doesn't seem to quite apply to me. Nonetheless, I can be buffeted by intense emotions if I'm not careful. I get stuck in maudlin thinking and behaviour and have spent time with overwhelming grief and anger.
I also feel love and joy very intensely. Currently, I feel full of the wonder of being alive and curious about what will happen next. I try very hard just to breathe deeply and live moment by moment, without expectation, but with much gratitude.
Calm in most cases - My outside world is a reflection of what is going on inside and vise versa - I tend to see everything as my classroom and practice from there
Mercurial. Vary a lot. Need to keep even keel. Worry a lot, care deeply about people I love. Need to be more even.
Balanced most of the time.
Overly sensitive, empathetic, prone to sadness and extreme happiness. Full of big love.
I'm stable and try to focus on the positive, excluding the negative emotions as much as possible.
I feel emotions quite deeply. I battle depression & anxiety, but I've got to a point where it's manageable. I try and hold on to a positive outlook to stay strong.
Extremes. Not in a manic, crazy way. But passionate? Yeah, let's go with that.
I'm moody, very sensitive.
I try to be objective and balanced about my emotions, but inevitable I'm a bit of passive/aggressive, thereby sometimes I just explode and become too emotional when something really bothers me.
Too tightly controlled.
I think I'm quite an introverted person. I think about all the bad that's going on in the world and it's makes me very sad. I've had suicidal thoughts in the recent past. But my friends tell me I'm sweet and thoughtful.
I am happy. There are times when I really haven't been (because of husband's business problems, lack of money, not being able to have kids), so now I am doubly grateful for the simple pleasures (birdsong, my cats, my flowers, a good cup of coffee). Also love the job I have created for myself (writing teacher) and my students bring me joy. Husband is also relaxed and happy these days so life is good.
I'm mostly happy. I feel satisfied with the relationships I have in my life.
Again- fairly calm and even.
My emotions are the weather.
Stable. Honest to a fault.
