Emotions sometimes seem so unnecessary. The thoughts, the fears, the assumptions, the pre-suppositions, the questions which play with our thought processes and create an unnecessary noise, distract silence and keep our minds constantly busy. Not to forget the need for ‘dramatisation’ that a normal person is taught from his childhood. When a person is hurt, his first reaction should be a cry of pain or a cry for help. Instead, it is an expression of anger, disgust, or mere vulnerability. When one hears a happy news one has been expecting since long, the obvious reaction should be a display of delight, or an outburst of joy, however the first reaction is to seek appreciation for whatever good that has occurred. These are the curtains that hide us from ourselves. This need for appreciation, to compare, fear of embarrassment, is what complicates our lives the most. Why aren’t we taught to live our life as simply as possible, instead of being given lessons on how to uncomplicate it? As children, why are we made to believe in the fear of the dark, instead of the glorious miracle of light?
