Emotions Necessary?

I was wondering if emotions are necessary in life and emotions do help in life in general. Where first emotions come from the Amygdala, but there is evidence that the brain works together to make things happen. The amygdala is an almond-shaped section of nervous tissue located in the temporal (side) lobe of the brain. There are two amygdala per person normally, with one amygdala on each side of the brain. They are thought to be a part of the limbic system within the brain, which is responsible for emotions, survival instincts, and memory. However, this inclusion has been debated heavily, with evidence that the amygdala function independently of the limbic system.

The amygdala is responsible for the perception of emotions such as anger, fear, and sadness, as well as the controlling of aggression. The amygdala helps to store memories of events and emotions so that an individual may be able to recognize similar events in the future. For example, if you have ever suffered a dog bite, then the amygdala may help in processing that event and, therefore, increase your fear or alertness around dogs. The size of the amygdala is positively correlated with increased aggression and physical behavior.

If you think about emotions if you see them in a positive light could be helpful, as humans if we where just logical life could be seen as dull. Emotions help us understand other people emotions and most of all sexual desire for are intimate partners. Emotions are used to succeed because who would like to work so many hours without the emotional compensation. At the same times emotions help us to survive knowing what feels dangerous and what does not. At the same time understanding that emotions at time could be rather disturbing or overwhelming.

When it comes to being sad or having an emotional hijack emotions could be very powerful. The results could be rather negative saying things you probably shouldn’t have said or hurting someone. At times emotions could cloud judgement; there has been many powerful males who have fallen do to emotions. Knowing that having an affair was probably not the wisest thing to do, but sexual desire is a very strong feeling.

Overall emotions are a good thing and it tells us many things about how we perceive the world thru are values and beliefs. You change the way you think about it and your emotions will reflect that. Are thought have an immediate effect on our bodies and our body language shows that.
