feelings and emotions are the same thing i thought.
anyway an emotion is a reaction to something. when you think about it, its what makes us human. the ability to feel something strongly, to be aware of our situation and that of others. the feeling of mutual love between two people is the most important thing in life. emotions can also often destroy people though because something happens and they can't get over that pain.
one thing thats interesting to me is whether women are more emotional than men or if perhaps society forces men to not show their emotions as much.
