Let's say you are upset about X, have been for several months, but been working on not being upset about it.
Then a reminder of X happens, and you still try not to be upset. Then a seemingly minor upsetting thing happens, and all of a sudden it is like the last straw, and big feelings come out? I know it does happen for some people, and it doesn't for others. What makes the difference?
Can one control the actual feelings or only their expressions?
If on can't control his / her feelings, does it mean one *Chooses* not to control those feelings?
Why would some people see emotions as obstacles to finding the "truth"?
If someone thinks that emotions are not valid in themselves, because they are not 'truth', and is able to suppress emotions, can such a person understand an "emotional" person?
