Emotion is any conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and a certain degree of pleasure or displeasure. In some theories, cognition is an important aspect of emotion. Those acting primarily on the emotions they are feeling may seem as if they are not thinking, but mental processes are still essential, particularly in the interpretation of events. For example, the realization of our believing that we are in a dangerous situation and the subsequent arousal of our body's nervous system (rapid heartbeat and breathing, sweating, muscle tension) is integral to the experience of our feeling afraid. Other theories, however, claim that emotion is separate from and can precede cognition.

Emotions are hard to deal with sometimes, but learning to deal with them and understanding them can lead to growth and a better person afterward. Sometimes it's hard to feel, and let others see you feel, but this is also part of the growth process. It's okay to cry, it's okay to feel, every human being does and this is in our nature.
