The Essence of Emotion
When people are called emotional, what does it really mean? Are emotions a bad thing? People seem to think so because they will ask, "Why are you being so emotional?" When you have passion it often means that you believe in something. Many people fail to realize that emotions are fueled by passion. When you put your heart and soul into something, just to lose, have it torn down, destroyed, or flat out told that it's no good, it is mentally and sometimes physically fatiguing. Most people are unaware that some of the most emotional people are football players. All people get to see is the tough outer exterior which displays toughness, strength, power, speed, etc... A lot of them have a drive that can't be competed with. Old football films will show that after losing a game some would even go to the locker room and cry about the loss. Are they being emotional babies? No, they just have the overwhelming passion and desire to be great. If you think being emotional is bad you might need a slight reality check of your own. The next time someone tells you that you are emotional take pride in the fact that you are passionate and you will fight for what you believe in.
