Emotional Connection

What is it about about emotions that appeal to people? If it were truly irrational, then is it possible to imply that other living organisms feel the way we do, too? After all, if our rationality sets us apart from other species, and emotions  do not require logic, then could this premise hold truth? I suppose it does, because we may be able to observe behaviors that manifest emotions from our pets: such as fear and even possibly, love?

But temperaments, dispositions and even culture markedly define our abilities to express our emotions. There will be no connection if there wasn’t even an attempt to express it all. The issue now rests on the appropriateness of the moment and object of attempting this connection. And will there be a connection if the object refuses to acknowledge it?

I think it is much like hooking up on the internet. If the client attempts to reach out to the server via modem or wireless fidelity, and the host server either fails to recognize this signal or refuses to accept it, then we are told that the connection failed in its attempt. Perhaps this is one way to illustrate how receptivity plays a role in establishing connections, whatever type of connection it may be.

Maybe I was right all along into limiting the expression of my emotions. It will be futile to put your heart on a sleeve most of the time. It might just fly away without you noticing where you left it or where it went.

    I read this entry with a withered mind… nose bleed hehe

    does this has something to do with “risking” anything? 😉

    dare: give it all out, again?

    “Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life… You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.” 😀

    Then, maybe this comment’s irrational 😉

      It’s not that your comment is irrational..I was just speaking in a more general scope, not just limited to romantic love. I just happened to have a lot of encounters with questions like “Do you consider yourself a ‘statue’ in terms of emotionality?” and “How emotionally available are your parents?” that led me to writing this post.

      I will never take on the challenge to give it all out. Selfish as it may seem, I need to have some things left within me.
