Okay, I consider myself to be a stable person. Not unfeeling, just stable. I tend to default to happy. Not obnoxiously happy, but gentle-smile-easy-going kind of happy. I like being happy so I try to stay that way, but like everyone I have my moods and a bit of a temper and once every couple months or so I'll blow my stack. Here's the catch though: about 80% of the time, my "victim" doesn't notice. I always feel bad about four seconds later and apologize and all I get is a blank look. Then I have to explain what just happened and they laugh at me. The other 20% of the time I either blow up in private or in front of someone who knows me well enough to recognize what's going on. Has this happened to any of you? How many of you get obviously emotional?

Emotional, moi?? No, Xanthine, I haven't the vaguest idea what you're talking about. [Roll Eyes]

Ha! Spungo will have a tough time keeping a straight face when he reads this tomorrow. [Wink]

I thought I was like that. Then I realized that the rest of the time I still seem to be hard to guage. Hence my question. Who else can't seem to get their point across?

Snupy, I only have your public posts to go by, and from those I wouldn't say you're any more emotional than the average Joe Forum. Well, there was that sappy stuff you posted but hey, those were kinda cute.

Hmm..I guess I hide it here better than I thought. In reality, I'm a very emotional person.
Too much so for my own good most of the time. I'm always reacting with my emotions instead of my brain, which leads me to jump into things rational people probably wouldn't. Sometimes I think I'd be happier being a tougher, less emotional person-but then I wonder if I'd be less compassionate, have fewer good friends, or take the highs for granted. I guess it's too late to change now anyway. [Confused]

I keep my emotions locked in a very small corner of my brain...and one day I will switch that part out for a computer circuit.

I'm a very emotional personal, but can also seem devoid of them, I guess. Not that it makes much odds, no-one has a clue about me anyhow. OK, Steve claims to, but I have many doubts.

Just beware of my many rants...

I am a rather emotional person, and I don't consciously hide them... However there are a few emotions (anger and sorrow) that I bottle up... When I reach the breaking point I escape to a speical place and yell to the wind everything that has been bothering me (or as of late, I find an understanding friend, who think me nuts (or at least more crazy than I normally am)).

I think alot of us can really relate to you Xanthine. you are in no way alone. Its really important to just be who you are and i think its really great that you appologize to people, even if they dont have a clue why.

Maybe you could find those few people you can vent to and try to stay cool till you talk with them, that way no one else gets caught in cross fire.

ah, emotions. its all part of life. [Wink]
