Emotions are one of the inherent qualities that the human beings are born with. So, by nature, human beings are emotional creatures.

Elements of emotions are, love, anger, grief, depression e.t.c which are the driving tools of our soul & help to conduct my life easier for most of the parts. But, there are drawbacks of emotions which makes our life fall apart or takes us behind in the hasty drift of life. Sometimes emotions make us see things more clearly and prospectively than brains, which is affirmative to emotions. Emotions are like a river, which flows & flows unless something drastically thwarts its way. Anyhow, human beings can’t live without emotions, rather lacking emotions makes our life dull & pale.


In our daily lives, emotions play a major role – from waking up to going to bed, we are driven by emotions – which are both conscious and subconscious. Conscious emotions are felt when we realize the source of the emotions, such that, if we’re hurt by something, it physically hurts first then, we feel the panic in our heart and we cry. But, subconscious emotions are so unexplainable sometimes that we almost forget why we expressed such emotions so impulsively in the first place. Many times, someone has definitely experienced such strong kind of emotions when, they see an old picture, read a good book, smell a favourite recipe or even watch an overdramatic film. People can’t help such emotions to take place as they are so impulsive and spontaneous.

Sometimes, some specific and focused questions, such as - why I acted in such a way? What emotional change has imbalance had in the past few times? can get us rid away of emotional imabalance. So, overall the point is, often the reason or root cause of the problem is not what we think but our personal emotional state which affects our life ultimately.
