Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?
I can hide my envy and any pity that I might have for someone or something pretty well. As a result of the pity – I hate to say pity, it’s more like sympathy and empathy, I will feel for those people or animals and act as much as possible to help them out. I cannot hide the sympathy & empathy that I feel though. Unless ofcourse it isn’t a very sad situation.
Rage is however another thing altogether. I find it harder and harder to hide it and I must show it or allow it to come to the surface or else I’m afraid that I will burst. I must let out that anger & frustration somehow or the other and in most cases an alternate outlet will suffice. But sometimes I must vent and once it is out things normally tend to calm down.
The same with joy. I like to be happy and my face cannot control my smile and my eyes light up when I am happy. My poker face – didn’t know that I had one – fails and I go into a grin and everyone around me knows that I am joyful about something or the other. And I like to radiate that joy onto others. Cause who doesn’t like to smile & be happy?
