In a previous post I mentioned that people should learn to control their emotions and feelings.
Another thing that is the need of the hour is for people to learn to understand what they are reading or listening.
In any of my posts, I have never once stated or asked anyone to suppress their emotions. And I never even tried to force anyone to control their emotions based on some elusive thought or for some hidden agenda.
Sometimes I simply don’t understand the people’s need to start abusing and fighting with someone who has a different, more evolved opinion.
Controlling Emotions doesn’t mean you have to suppress them. It simply means that you should, if you want, learn to control and regulate them so that they don’t play an extensive role in your life.
It is not about avoiding a certain ability. It is simply about regulating that ability and using it in a way that would be helpful and provide you with a positive gain in the future.
When someone tells you “Expectations Hurt”, you accept the idea of ‘Not Expecting anything from anyone’. Or at least, you try.
But when someone goes a step further and suggests you to learn to control and regulate the emotions, the base cause of all the expectations and everything else, you simply start abusing that person. Why?
Do you think abusing and calling names would prevent that person from having an opinion?
If you do, don’t you think it is too presumptuous of you?
Learning and exploring new possibilities is the primary function of Human Brain. If we were simply to work on a certain set of principles, we might as well have had a pre-programmed binary processor instead of the most complex and highly sophisticated Neural Network.
And writing anything doesn’t require emotions. Some people simply use LOGIC as the basis for writing or performing any other task for that matter.
Everyone has emotions. It’s not like those who are capable of controlling and regulating their emotions have simply removed their Amygdala.
No one expects you to be able to control your emotions by tomorrow. It is a process. An ever-lasting process. It takes time for one to finally be able to be in control of his or her faculties.
And considering the idea of being able to control emotions, let me give you an example.
Millions of years ago, every Human functioned and lived on the primary emotion of fear and killing. The primitive humans feared everything they didn’t understand and killed other beings or even each other for survival. But as they evolved, their psychology evolved too and most of them learned to control those emotions and their impulse reactions to certain situations.
It’s not that we don’t still possess those emotions, it’s simply that we have learned to control them overtime.
