Am I weird for thinking emotions are weird?

Like beyond the typical "Love ya, bro" type deal, I find emotions in general to be... disturbingly awkward. I previously perceived my feelings about this topic to be because I used to feel that emotions were showing weakness. I do not feel that is the case now, but for some reason I still find myself having trouble getting behind it. Maybe you guys can relate, maybe you can't.

I don't even think I'm seeking advice; I'm just posting this because I want to. Some of you that don't know me particularly well may feel that I come off as abrasive, nonchalant, and generally non-emotional. I strive to do this. I don't like being any other way. Again, I find emotions to be awkward. I don't know why, but they make me uncomfortable. Possibly something about them being cliche or something. I dunno. :P

Feel free to leave thoughts and/or comments, guys. I love you all*.

*sigh

What is the derivative of cos(ln((6x^4))^2)?

Quoting 29. DataPilot:


From one logic-loving, emotion-stuffing person to another - learn to accept your emotions, and to demonstrate them in socially-acceptable ways. Whether it feels comfortable or not.
The most I can do is demonstrate and apply empathy. I hope that's good enough.

I have tons of anime crushes. Otanashi is from Angel Beats, which I watched not too long ago. Blake Shepard is his voice actor, who is also fairly cute and has a distinct sexy voice.

I have tons of anime crushes, actually. Son Goten from Dragon Ball Z/GT, Ritchie from Pokemon, Yahiko from Rurouni Kenshin, Kirito from Sword Art Online. Just to name a few.

If you don't watch anime, this'll fall on deaf ears. But you can't say I didn't try.

He's smart though. I am, in all seriousness, something of a math cripple. Like I said, I just got lucky.

(I blame lead exposure in my first year. I was reading college level by 4th grade, but it took me until 11th grade to memorize the multiplication tables.)


No, the reason I asked posted the addition problem was specifically because Kori is currently learning fractions. He's smart and has a great vocabulary and can reason like no other...but his math education is virtually nonexistent.

Nope. You strike me as a person who feels most comfortable with logic, and therefore tries to ignore the emotional aspect of his being. Been there, done that. Unfortunately, your mind doesn't work that way, whether you want it to or not.

Emotions make no "sense". They're not logical, they're simply there. Sometimes they lubricate social encounters, other times they get in the way. Sometimes, they're like having a coccyx (tail bone), providing no real function aside from being something that can get broken and hurt. But they're a part of you, whether you want them or not, and if you try to put a stopper on them, they'll come back and bite you in ways that you don't expect.

You said that you're not asking for advice, but I'll give you some anyway. From one logic-loving, emotion-stuffing person to another - learn to accept your emotions, and to demonstrate them in socially-acceptable ways. Whether it feels comfortable or not.

Dragon ball Z/GT... I loved it back in the day when I was first watching it.
Funny majin buu.

I watch some from time to time... Mostly in Spanish.
Love the voices they have.

I told you I loved you when we ceased last night's conversation, Nathan*. I meant it, but that's about as far as I'm willing to go. Anything else is awkward to me.

*I clearly meant love in the platonic sense, if any passerby felt the need to question that.

I don't delete my blogs anymore, so you can use this blog to prove me wrong if it does happen.

Because if it does happen, I'll enunciate it here.

It seems considerably less awkward to let my actions dictate my emotional connection to a person. Not overly used phrases that are hardly unique.

Bad wording. I meant that the consequences of emotional stimuli can be cliche. i.e. "I love you so much baby girl <3 <3 <3" Eww.


Quoting 1. Astrometeor:
 Learning to adapt to what they tell you is an important aspect of becoming more mature and finding out what you are comfortable with.

I did find out what I'm comfortable with. Rampant emotion is not one of those things.

How can emotions be cliche? They are natural reflexes to perceived outside stimuli. Sure they can be awkward, but that's just a fact of life. Learning to adapt to what they tell you is an important aspect of becoming more mature and finding out what you are comfortable with.
