18. Please describe your emotions.
they are what they are :)
Usually pretty balanced with the occasional earth-shattering breakdown
Strong, fluid, caring.
Mostly stable. Sometimes compartmentalized. Not as many highs or lows as when I was young.
Mostly, sad. Occasionally, happy.
My emotions are deep and inspiring.
I am quite an emotional person. I think I am empathetic and I try to be thoughtful. I love to laugh and I laugh a lot. I find happiness in small things and small beauties and minute details. I cry easily over sad and happy things and I have a very fiery temper when I am provoked. I think I am pretty even keeled for the most part, but I am one of those people who gets "hangry" (angry when they are hungry), and I am not fit to be around at those times. Sometimes I get stressed out and I have difficulty sleeping. I run a small business so it is usually about money.
Really strong and independent in everything
I'm fairly emotional, tending to over-react. Mostly, I'm happy.
Generally pretty steady. I tend to be very empathic and sympathetic. Pretty happy on a regular basis with occasional dips into melancholy.
I'm pretty straight forwards emotionally. I once described myself as "a cheerful little soul, drunk on her own brilliance." and I think that's pretty accurate. I only get stressed or sad if something is causing it, then it's like I have this background hum of stress or whatever but I can normally distract myself by reading or watching kids TV so it's not all consuming.
Always under my scrutiny, I give myself the space to doubt my emotions, not allowing the negative ones to put me down of weaken me, but knowing that emotions are an important part in finding solutions. This makes me a strong person, but also flexible. I am utterly incapable of lying or faking anything, and of course this also means too many times I'm blunt. I am fully committed to my projects, my principles and to the people I love.
Sensitive, headstrong, sometimes confusing.
Hardest to control..leaky emphatic something..I've read and try to become stronger.
A worrier, become entangled in others emotions..can be overwhelmed.
I really try ,have become better at, not spreading my self to thin emotionally, relying on a greater spirit that things will be fine..not reacting emotionally..but constructively.
Currently, very heavy. But usually bright.
Too often I think of my emotions as some kind of wild animal I'm trying to domesticate or soothe, or talk out of being the way they are. Passionate, loving, loyal, funny, sometimes paranoid, depressed, angry. The gamut. Reaching for joyful as often as I can.
I am easily scared of all kinds of things.
Very emotional -- I've always been told I'm *too* sensitive, but I like being able to feel a wide range of emotion.
I'm pretty even keeled, but I don't realize when I'm stressed out until I've reached my tipping point.
I do not show my emotions around others because I think people who do that are weak. I usually show sadness or anger when I am alone.
Incredibly controllable. Weak times include one specific day a month, animal rescue stories, other people crying.
All over the place at any given time. I'm always feeling things too deeply, there's never a moment of detachment and that's exhausting.
Inhibited by Englishness.
depressed but on anti depressants so theyre a bit muffled
I worry about what people think of me. Than I kind of tell myself off for worrying about that. I never panic. I usually see the sunny side of things, until I don't for a day or two.
Stable, unless I'm about to have my period. Then I will cry over dog food commercials. It is so bizarre.
I have them. I like to hide my emotions, I think. I'm willing to show them around a very few amount of people. I can be a very expressive person, but often, I'm acting, I used to connect a lot to Shakespeare's saying that the whole world is a stage and we are merely actors, I think that that connection influenced how I decided to portray emotions. I'm really a calm person who likes to handle things in a sensible way, but I also like sharing and showing people good-hearted caring.
stressed. busy. tired. neutral. impatient.
Trying to be Driving
But pace keeps them with limited influence
a ~~~colour palette that moves just as quickly, but is permanently rooted somewhat in yellow or orange, even if just a tinge.
Strong & passionate but generally under high control.
The other day I was talking about the difference between emotions and feelings with a friend.
Emotions :happy, sad, angry. Indicative. Feelings: more complicated and nuanced than that. My emotions -- when I emote -- there's always some choice in it. My mother and I would fight and we'd get so over the top and yell in 1940s sounding transatlantic voices and make these ridiculous grandiose statements... When I was younger my emotions were about proving something. About showing. I don't think I do that anymore. When I feel joy and I'm with someone I trust, I express it but its not to prove something
