When we divide love how are we supposed to use it to come together? In studying emotions, I found that people are more inclined to make their emotions specific than to acknowledge that though the experiences are specific, the actual emotions aren’t. We all experience the same signs and symptoms; that is how we are able to not only label, but also diagnose them. Being happy is enjoying a moment that brings joy. Happiness is looking around you and enjoying everything you see; it’s a state of being, it involves being in a state that allows you to continue to be optimistic about life. Being angry is when someone or something causes you to lose self-control, causing you to either lash out or walk out (fight or flight); funny how much that mirrors fear. The emotion that causes you to lose control of self also causes you to ‘defend’ or ‘run for comfort’. Misery is the negative state of being that causes you to not enjoy life; it causes you to become pessimistic about everything involving life. We label these emotions so that we can understand what, when, where, how, and most importantly why we are going through them. We wouldn’t be able to understand the functions of man without categorizing things, and here we are trying to fight labels as opposed to understanding what labels we wish to embrace. When you understand each emotion and you understand what will cause those emotions, you’re more inclined to walk closer to the desired emotions and walk away from the undesirable ones. Remind yourself that “I am made up of definitions that define me, and if I don’t like the meaning of something that describes me, I shouldn’t change the meaning, I should change the descriptive”. When that is understood, LOVE will be the definition that describes us, meeting our destination of being bonded together!!!!
