In response to the daily Prompt on The Daily Post
Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?
Anger, happiness, hatred, jealousy, kindness, love, passion are all emotions we often display even when unwarranted. Having total control over one’s emotions is no mean task for an individual, to each his own. It is undisputed that every person will not have the reigns of all his emotions well harnessed. I am no exception.
The unsafest of containers for me is being highly emotional with tears streaming down my face, over which I have not learned to exercise control to this day. I believe that I have a fair share of control over my other emotions. Every little thought, sight or action touches me deeply. The pain or sorrow of someone cannot be endured by me. Put to much agony over happenings that others may term as trivial, I just cannot hold myself. A tear in somebody’s eye, a sad story, a tragic movie, a melancholic song or even a touching speech can unveil me. Being emotional is the height of emotions. I eagerly await a day when I would gain an upper hand over being sentimental.
