There is another thing. You have this massive flood of emotions that are absolutely ridiculous. I mean honestly, it is like your brain really doesn't know how you are supposed to be, so it throws everything and the kitchen sink at you. You may start by wailing; then you're angry; then you are happy. For some reason you try to logically depict why you are reacting the way that you are. You become your own CSI agent and you are looking over every piece of evidence. There needs to be a reason, right? No sane rational person would react in such a way. After all, it is not only the opposable thumbs that separate us from the apes; our brains and intellect have something to do with it right? Here is the thing: we experience shock, which is kind of like a short circuit in our brains. We are no longer rational humans; we are everything that we are all at once. Saying that it is overwhelming is kind of understating the event. Truly, it depends on the person, and their personal experience.
On the flip side of it all, you can have pretty much the same reaction when you hear fantasic news. Or so I am told. I have personally never heard any news that caused a reaction like that. I may have had one right after my daughter was born, but they had me so pumped full of drugs I had a hard time focusing on anything, let alone my feelings. I like to experience life. I hold on to the vivid details of life and things around me. These things really do make me happy. I think that maybe some time in my life I will be able to experience something so overwhelming that I drop to my knees and yell "Alleluia!" I think that when that moment comes, I will then be able to use words that will be known as the biggest proclamation ever spoken. I will share this great news with you, and you and I will share in bliss. Until that happens, I'll just have to settle for being observant and living within this world.
So, it is the reaction time that shows to all of us how we truly feel about things. A smile. A frown. A high five. We all have reactions, we are all human. You should realize that, again, how you react is how you are feeling at that moment. You need not apologise for reacting the way you do. You need only apologise if you are demeaning or rude. And if you are witness to an emotional outburst, a little empathy goes a long way. In some cases. Other times, if the person is being unreasonably rude, well, release hell. Some people need to be put back in the box/hole that they came out of. I swear that there are some people who were raised by aliens. It has to be aliens because saying they were raised by animals is, well, insulting to animals. I have never seen or met an alien (that I know of), so I have no comparison.
Keep your chin up, and respect your reactions. Afterall, they are just human nature, nothing to be ashamed of.
Happy Does It
