Journal Entry: Emotions

Extracts from this document...


Journal Entry: Emotions Nobody is emotionless even though some people show their emotions less than others, but every living human being has feelings and each new situation has some impact on a person. Each person copes with the new situation in a different way, with different emotions and attitudes. It is said that women show their emotions more than men do, but I don't agree with the idea that emotions are something bad, although when somebody says about another person that he or she is too emotional, we don't put this characteristic into the group of good ones.

The intensity of each emotion varies from person to person. People are happy when they achieve their goal, when somebody told them something nice, simply when good news happens.
