Imagine a situation where you get emotional in front of your colleagues, or maybe in a public gathering. It will be quite embarrassing and humiliating right? But why.
Why it is embarrassing for us to be emotional in a workplace or in a public gathering. It has been programmed in our mind that showing emotions is a sign of weakness and immaturity.
Everyone on this planet feels emotions. Having emotions is just as natural and important need of our body as food or sex.
Although feeling sadness, anger, frustration, grief is common among humans but usually we face judgement and criticism while expressing emotions.
We receive judgement not only from our acquaintances but also from our close friends and family.
It is difficult for anyone to share their feelings and desires with anyone and slowly we develop a fear of sharing our mind.
With growing age, we usually learn to control our thoughts and mind to behave as per the standards of society.
There are different techniques that can be employed to carry out the task such as some people employ thought-replacement strategy where he or she replaces the negative thoughts in the mind
with a peaceful and happy memory. This helps them to keep calm and stops any kind of emotional outbursts.
Some people try to distract themselves with various activities such as watching television, reading a book etc. These techniques have been proven effective with lots of people.
But these techniques are helpful only to a certain extent.
The issue with any kind of emotional outbursts is not only embarrassment and humiliation but it also impairs our thinking and decision-making capability.
Emotions come in the way of effective work and intelligence. Imagine that you are currently grieving because of the death of any close friend.
The sadness will not enable you to concentrate on your work properly. This can cause delay while meeting deadlines. Emotions come into picture in our thinking process.
Due to these reasons usually,
it is forbidden for colleagues working together on any project to engage in a romantic relationship as it interferes with the thought processing and decision-making ability.
Sometimes your feelings can overpower your entire body due to which few people complain that it is hard for them to get out of there bed and start the day.
In other words, your thoughts and feelings can cause crippling. This phenomenon is called depression.
Where not only your decision-making capability is compromised but our entire bodily functions can be affected.
It has been proven that depression, anxiety, bipolar-disorder, and other issues related to human mind can cause people to commit suicide (in the worst case).
The very feature of humans that separates it from others (the power of thinking) is compromised due to multiple emotions.
Due to the side-effects of having emotions people now-a -days are more likely moving towards sociopathy. They are training their minds to not care about anybody other then themselves.
People are becoming more self-centered and self-involved. They tend not to care towards anyone's comments, judgements, and behavior.
Now people are trying to live there lives independently without any kind of support whether it is emotional, physical, or financial.
Because of that humans are slowly evolving into another species that are devoid of any emotions or feelings.
The words like sympathy, empathy and compassion will soon vanish from the face of the earth.
Multiple chemical reactions happen in our brain which results in we experiencing various emotions.
Different parts of the brain are responsible for different feelings such as amygdala (part of limbic system) is responsible for fear.
Alteration of these reactions will give rise to a completely new species of human beings that is incapable to feeling anger, frustration, irritation, anxiety, sadness, or grief.
But truth to be told the conscious of human beings is the glue which is holding the balance of our society.
If this glue disappears there will be nothing other than destruction, confusion, and chaos.
The very thing that stops a human being from stealing, flogging, or killing each other is none other than their own consciousness.
Homo sapiens feel for the people other than themselves which acts a survivor of the order of the society.
Human consciousness stops us not only from hurting each other but also it keeps us in check from hurting other species that live on earth.
If we remove the barrier of human conscious it can disrupt the food chain and delicate balance of nature.
We can easily conclude that being totally devoid of sentiments can lead to destruction of planet but if continue to feel everything the way we feel, it can lead to our own destruction.
Humans need to search for a middle ground. A safe place where we stop killing ourselves because of our negative thoughts and getting addicted to pills and we still feel empathy for other people.
We still feel the need to control the order of society. Human beings need to filter out only those emotions which can cause pain to themselves and keep their conscious alive.
The next generation of humans will have the skills to ignore those thoughts and feelings that can make them sick. The skill which is very mandatory to survive in this world.
Humans will not be dependent on medication to solve problems like anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder.
The human brain will act as barrier which will help to keep our happiness intact and also the experience which forced brain to act in the certain way will get registered in the mind so that
in future we can avoid the same situation and save ourselves from the trouble.
Being happy will increase our productivity in work which will restore humans as the most intelligent animals on planet rather than anxious little people who are in constant need of approval.
