I wish the post was longer, where you would explore depths of emotions instead of putting them all in the same bucket. You could have explored the benefits of suppressing emotions — not suggesting that’s a good thing, but in order to understand the other side better, you need to know them first.

Why do you think people stay at a distance from their emotions? Do you think they have always been like that? They surely had their reasons to not trust their emotions, presuming they made bad decisions or did act unlike their normal selves, and now they can’t take their actions back — the dark side of emotions, I wish you could think more about them and wonder why they are the way there? They love the emotions of joy, but also hate the emotion of anger, jealousy, and envy.

I also sensed a hatred for corporate professionalism which often requires you to keep your emotions at bay — which I’m not a fan of either — but do you think there is a place for emotions where decisions need to be made at every point? And what about the emotion of stress which is quite prevalent in workplaces?

Regardless, it’s good to see you wonder about these intangible things.
