Emotion is so crucial, but why? People use it as a reason to create and produce media of all varieties, people use it as a drive to accomplish something, people use it just in order to live. Sure, without emotion we would all be the empty shells of humans going along with nothing entirely unique about any of us but and everyone likes to sound poetic and say that, “Without the bad we wouldn’t know the good.” (quoted from literally almost anyone ever) but, the bad is so much more powerful, it takes so much more out an individual and the people that they impact. Not everything can be good obviously, that has been established but why do we have to have any of it? Why can’t humans just let go of certain situations? Why is it that certain people can’t go certain places without being reminded of bad days and scary situations? Since this article has been a lot of questions without answers, here’s the next part of it, answers. Emotion is so crucial because without it, each and every human wouldn’t be unique to themselves, traits in each personality would be completely changed without emotion, people wouldn’t be able to grow and develop, most, if not all, human progression would be stopped. Why is the bad more good? Typically I like to think that it can be more prominent because it may not occur as much, good is a more frequent occurrence so it can often be forgotten and people can skip over it more easily. Focusing on the bad is so easy that any good can be completely forgotten. Places and people are both affiliated with good and bad, places and people can never be seen or spoken with or about because of both of these reasons, it’s always special to an individual if they can or can’t do certain things, situations are always different. So, in the end, (it doesn’t even matter - Linkin Park’s In The End) emotions are really stupid and I hate them a lot but, they are a very prominent thing in each person’s life so we kinda need them, so I had better get used to dealing with them I suppose.
