There is never such a thing as too emotional. Everyone is diffrent and have diffrent emotions there no such thing as too emotional
Are you? Do you get mood swings? Is it just being unreasonably happy or sad about certain things? Now, is that a bad thing? People show emotions to let others know what they feel. If you cry a lot during a funeral or even for your bad grades, I think that's perfectly fine. As long as you understand that things happen and you shouldn't take everything so seriously that it robs the fun out of things, then it's fine. Being someone who have a general positive outlook on life and is expressive seems like a fun person to hang around.
I tend to think that there's no clear definition of what is "too emotional." If you feel like your emotions are coming between you and your goals, then perhaps it is time to take a closer look at them.
Too emotional in what context? In general? Past hurts can affect us in the future and we can be seen as 'too emotional' but it's only because we have too much on our plate.
I am but then who isn't? :) The thing about emotions is that people react to situations differently. If you show more of your feelings than another person needn't necessarily mean that you are overflowing with emotions or that the other person is an ice king/ ice queen.
Too emotional could be described better for example sensitive. It's okay to be sensitive. There's a difference in how sensitive everyone is. If you are bothered by it then you could always learn how to express your emotions differently. Everyone should be happy with how they express their emotions. Comfort is a good thing.
In my opinion, it is hard to be to emotional. Don't label yourself to be that way! Instead try to focus on the positives going on in your life! Emotions are a great part of life depending on what you are feeling.
Everyone can be emotion at any time. Emotion and events effect everyone differently. You are the only one that can judge how emotional how are toward an event.
Personally I think we are all on a spectrum. Some of us naturally share more of our emotions than others. Thank is OK. Its part of being different. What seems important to me is whether the emotions are appropriate, whether we share the appropriate amount, and whether we share at the appropriate times. Feeling 'too emotional' could be a sign to ourselves (and to others) that there is an underlying problem or issue that we need to address in order to stay healthy.
Feeling emotions is completely natural and everyone is different,so I don't think there can be such a thing as being 'too emotional'.
What does it mean to be too emotional? Can one be too mental? Can one be too physical? Remember, one cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain. It shows you are in touch with your emotions and feelings and that is what we need more on this planet. Just a matter of having the right mental state to prevent unnecessary suffering. Follow your feelings, your heart and everything will fall into place;)
Are you too emotional? Maybe, maybe not. Emotions in moderation are really important. Emotions are like guideposts that direct us vague directions to progress as people. They clue us in to our gut instincts about what is safe, happy, and healthy for us. Listen to your emotions, because they can guide your life to be more fulfilling. Use emotions and analytical thought together to make decisions in your life, you need the heart and the brain to work in harmony together.
No, you are not. There is no such thing as too emotional person. Also, there is a possibility that you simply might be a highly sensitive person and that's completely fine.
Sometimes I let things get personal to me, which means that my responses are therefore affected and may be shaped by my emotions. This means that I might say things or act in a certain way I didn't originally intend to.
