Today, I come up with something that each one faces in their lives, the level may vary, but sure everyone does experience it – Emotions!
Emotions, are something that make you alive, that make you a living being, emotions are not just a human trait, emotions are something that every living being capable of thinking projects. On one end, emotions are a conduct of life, they sensitize you towards your surroundings. On the other end, a rush of emotions, is like a gushing wave that sometimes comes with so much triumph that it forces you to be on your knees. It is one of the most horrendous and eerie feeling, that your emotions overriding your life. (Though, very few people realize this.)
Human mind is the most manipulative thing, that I have learnt about and experienced in my life, it can manipulate you to bend yourself according to your emotions, be it love, anger, envy, joy, fear, ecstasy, annoyance, and all those varied emotion that a living being is capable of projecting.
Wonder why we talking about this? Because I have seen a foreplay of emotions in different people, acting out on surroundings differently. We, as individuals, may not want to behave in the particular manner that we must be behaving, but we end up doing that, cause the balance between the rationality and emotions has been disrupted. For instance, Ego that takes birth from various negative emotions that an individual experiences, is root cause of our actions, these days. Most of us are being led by the false sense of pride instilled in us, which is a response to our fast pacing, stimulating external environment. Everyone is running in a relay, to get to an unknown destination, but wherever, we all are striving to reach, we want to be better than the rest. Due to this, rationality is hurled deeply, cause our emotions are on a high, we forget to see the practical angles, these emotions, which make us living, they then become a weapon of destruction. Ego then kills more bonds, than the death might do apart. An individual’s emotions takes so much power over their mind, that they start feeling, what they are doing is perpetually right, and that’s when the trap of emotions completes.
Emotions, though are free flowing, they come naturally, but how much power you want to give to which emotion controls you, holds you and defines you. You feed your negative emotions and do not rationalize it, it will demolish the girdle. We should be aware of the emotions that we are experiencing, and then watch if our actions are emotion led or rational.
Life is too short to let our negative emotions override us, and destroy beautiful things and moments. A lot of us may not realize the worth of these things today, but once lost may never come back.
