Some people find it really odd, but when they actually understand its really nice...

I have a really hard time talking about my feelings and emotions. Idk I just do. I sometimes confid in a very close vod, but rarely, usually I just keep it to myself and bury it deep inside. It seems to work. Smile

@James, yes, I imagine confiding with people who understand you, while walking underneath a starry sky would be wonderful. Smile I honestly love doing that, but really havent gotten the chance with my busy schedule lately.. Also because I dont really have anyone I can walk & talk underneath a starry sky.

I honestly think understanding is one of the best things a person can have within themselves.. Understanding of people's actions, feelings, ways of doing things, etc... Its all rather important..

Thus is why I love learning about human interaction & history & what not. Cause it gives you a better understanding of such things. Smile

This is where I now bring up a new feeling.. That I want to know your OWN personal (yes, personal, I'm getting deep here guys. Wink ) definition of happiness. What is it to you? What makes YOU happy? Smile

I think my highest level of happiness would be when I'm helping people I really really care about, I'm getting things done, & I'm at a calm state of being (even though I'll still be a klutz, thats never gonna go away, lol) where I can just.. Chill. Smile

Exactly, cause I mean if you cant help them.. What kind of friend does that really make you?
Thats why I dont understand when people are like, "My friends have a problem? Pffft, they'll be fine! Why would they want my help?"

The thing is.. They usually do. Unless they request to do it themselves, then you need to leave them alone.

yup... they'd want your help because when people are brought low they are looking for something that will lift them up(they do it by themselves to find inner strength to prove that they can get through life be their own strength) ;P

Exactly.. Whenever my friends just blow me off (& sometimes they do, which is why I dont hang out with those friends much...) I get really hurt.. Its kinda like a slap to the face.

& Thats exactly why some people are like, "Urrgghh, leave me alone! I gotta be a little more independent!" Haha.

Emo people make me sad, just because they feel that being emo is the only way they feel they can express themselves. My family, all of you guys Commissioned in this organaztion, makes me feel the happiest. Serving God, through the C.A.A. and fostering that close family feel within the organaztion, is the most fulfilling thing I have in my life. Smile

Re: Emotions

Emotions... they are what define the way we behave ourselves in the public square. They are what, more often than not, creates impressions of us in the minds of others.

I understand completely why emotionally disturbed people act the way they do: they haven't read G.K. Chesterton! Chesterton said "To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it." Emo people clearly think that because they have the right to act the way they do through freedom, they are right in doing it. They think that by changing the way they act and look and indeed changing their own person, they are making progress to a better life for themselves.

Chesterton says "Progress should mean that we are always changing the world to fit the vision, instead we are always changing the vision." Emotionally disturbed people are obviously lacking in a solid unchanging vision. We Christians have the unchanging vision of eternal life in Heaven; they have the changing vision of however they can make their life mean something to THEM by enjoying THEM.

About enjoying life, Chesterton says "Do not enjoy yourself. Enjoy dances and theaters and joy-rides and champagne and oysters; enjoy jazz and cocktails and night-clubs if you can enjoy nothing better; enjoy bigamy and burglary and any crime in the calendar, in preference to the other alternative; but never learn to enjoy yourself."

Enjoy the things with life. Let positive emotions come from positive activities! Truth be told, sadness is an emotion that stems from a sad event, and is usually unavoidable. However, we as Christians look at sadness and remind ourselves of the vision we have, of Heaven, and that we can trust in the hope of Christ that those we lose in this life will be with us forever in the next.

Chesterton says "One of the chief uses of religion is that it makes us remember our coming from darkness, the simple fact that we are created." And we are created. We are individual. We don't need to go emo to show the world (and moreover, show ourselves) that we are individual. We have our faith to show us that. Chesterton says "The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man." How true is that, when you look at people like Stalin and Hitler and Mao. They all tried to find a solution to the human problem, going by atheist precepts which taught the use of euthanasia, abortion, and ethnic cleansing.

On atheism, Chesterton says "Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle." Ponder atheism. They think that because there is no God, and that we have luckily found ourselves in a procreative self-efficient world, we should enjoy ourselves. Once again I reference Chesterton's quote about enjoying the good things of life.

I conclusion, I will leave you with some quotes about love which seems to be the center of any and all discussion about emotions. Razz

"The first two facts which a healthy boy or girl feels about sex are these: first that it is beautiful and then that it is dangerous."

Compare that with today's view of sex.

"A man imagines a happy marriage as a marriage of love; even if he makes fun of marriages that are without love, or feels sorry for lovers who are without marriage."

Your views are great 80-0! Smile
Thats exactly what I think with the whole emo thing. They think that its good to be cutting themselves because it gives them control thus making freedom their right.. But.. Its not right to be doing that.. I have family members that do that & it makes me sad.. Sad I tell them over & over again to please stop. But then that'd be taking away freedom & yeah.. Not good..

& nice quotes! Love.. Aww, I knew that was gonna come into this wonderful discussion of emotions. Because there is a lot of emotion when it comes to loving someone.. Or hell, even liking someone has a lot of emotion put behind it.
