88 Emotions Quotes That Will Help You Embrace What You Feel

Emotions

Emotions are powerful feelings. They are usually triggered by what is going on around us. They are our reactions to things and sometimes they tend to be quite strong. If we don't control our emotions, they can control us.

Emotions are behind a lot of the things that people say and do. People will be guided by empathy and compassion to help those in need. People will be led by their emotions to start a relationship. People will also be controlled by emotions when they burst out in anger and say hurtful things to others.

What they say may not have been intentional, but the emotions swirling within pushed them to the point of saying it. But even when people say things they didn't mean because they're guided by emotions, those are things that have been on their mind.

Their current emotions only compelled them to say them at last. Keep in mind the things people tell you when overwhelmed by emotions because they are true. Emotions can work in someone's favor or against them.

If they lead them to do or say regrettable things, the emotions work against them. However, sometimes they work for good. Like when we help others or do commendable things that are recognized by those around us.

Sometimes we'll be pushed by passion to follow our dreams or do something that we've always been scared to do. We will be able to do it or work on it tirelessly and fearlessly because we have that strong drive within us that is pushing us ahead.

When emotions lead us in the right direction this way, we are bound to do things that work out for our good and that of the people around us. Our ‘emotions quotes' will help you control your emotions to work for you and not against you.

Every second, what we feel For our people & our planet Almost brings us to our knees, A compassion that nearly destroys Us with its massiveness. There is no love for or in this world That doesn't feel both bright & unbearable, Uncarriable.

Every second, what we feel
For our people & our planet
Almost brings us to our knees,
A compassion that nearly destroys
Us with its massiveness.

& SO It is easy to harp, Harder to hope. This truth, like the white-blown sky, Can only be felt in its entirety or not at all. The glorious was not made to be piecemeal. Despite being drenched with dread, This dark girl still dreams. We smile like a sun that is never shunted. Grief, when it goes, does so softly, Like the exit of that breath We just realized we clutched.

I just... Needed to get outside of that place. I've been a little exhausted by it all. 'I just wanted a little escape.' I didn't mean to dump my troubles onto you. I think it's true what they say...

It's just that I'm fighting the pain of lost love. I guess it's what you'd call a rude awakening... or, maybe... the weight of responsibility? But I'm fine. I'm fine. Caring for someone isn't based on logic. You can't really rationalize emotions. Once I think "I like him"... it's all over.
