what causes feelings ?
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.
an emotion is an expression of how you feel inside. people can feel all sorts and supress their emotion because they don't want others to know how they feel. people can also express all sorts of emotions to hide how they actually feel.
in other words, laughing is an emotion, crying is an emotion, but you won't have those emotions if there is no feeling there. you might laugh or smile if you're feeling happy and you might cry if you're feeling sad.
have you ever laughed while feeling sad and cried when feeling happy ?
1. A mental state that arises spontaneously rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes; a feeling: the emotions of joy, sorrow, reverence, hate, and love.
2. A state of mental agitation or disturbance: spoke unsteadily in a voice that betrayed his emotion. See Synonyms at feeling.
3. The part of the consciousness that involves feeling; sensibility: "The very essence of literature is the war between emotion and intellect" (Isaac Bashevis Singer).
okay you are unlikely to cry unless you're emotional. but the act of crying is not the emotion. the emotion is what you feel.
