Which Emotion Do You Hide from the Most?
As Dushka Zapata says, worry is a useless emotion.
It does nothing but stress you out, and I hate that, so I hide from it.
Why hasn’t Mom texted you back by now?
A million morbid images spill through my brain. What if she collapsed somewhere? What if she needs my help? What if she’s been attacked by someone?
She’s fine, I assure myself.
More awful situations fill my head. Then she texts, I’m by the door.
I breathe a sigh of relief.
Fear of losing the imperative people of my life, who truly matter to me.
I've already lost some of my dear ones in an abrupt manner. I don't have more mettle to bear losing someone again. Many times, I try to overlook it, but sometimes, my hands become moist if I hear about someone's death.
I don’t really hide from my emotions. I acknowledge that I feel them, but I don’t like feeling them. I know that emotions affect my ability to process information and make a logical decisions, and I don’t like this. I severely crush strong emotions that and hope they don’t come out again.
But if I had to choose an emotion, I guess it’d have to be anger. Anger makes you do the stupidest things that you don’t mean. I try very hard to curb my anger, and I try very hard to hold the furious words in. I try to wait until the feelings pass before talking about what the problem was.
