Wondering about useless emotions.

We all have enough emotions; love, hate, fear, sadness, amazement; just to name a few. So, why add to the list with ones that are useless? What do I call useless emotions? Most of the emotions that I consider useful are those that affect other people, things, or places and those that protect us. The ones that I consider useless are those that only affect yourself and do not protect you or make you happy and satisfied. The one that tops my useless list is embarrassment. I feel something like the comment The Flying Tortoise left on my blog yesterday when he said: “I felt stupid once DD but decided it was just silly... now I just feel happy...”. That is the reason I never feel embarrassed. I just use my sense of humor and laugh at myself along with everyone else.

Let us all just stay happy like Keith, and see the humor and beauty in all things. You all have a great day now, you hear?


  1. What you say makes a lot of sense to me! Now if I would only take your advice!

    Have a great day!

  2. I don't get embarressed either, rueful maybe, and i can always laugh at myself.
    Good post, DD.

  3. I think our emotions, including embarassment, are some of the things that make us human. What good would it be to eliminate them. What check would we have on ourselves and our behavior. I'm talking about normal emotions, not extreme to the point of being self-destructive.

  4. HJ, some times I have to remind myself to eliminate the one sided emotions. But it works, especially if you have good sense of humor.

    Trouble, You sound like me and thanks for comment.

    Gypsy, I know people who will not meet with friends if they haven’t had a chance to dress up. They are embarrassed to be seen in every day clothes. I am not, you got to take me as I am, although I like to look as good as possible and that is getting harder and harder to do.

    TFT, you are very welcome, and thank you for taking time to read my blog.

  5. I can laugh off most things. I think its due to being comfortable in your own skin. But I seem to becoming a chronic blusher when it come to atracting attention. I guess I like being a wallflower. Photographer from the Butler Eagle will be at my house tomorrow...not looking forward to it. They were looking for someone who did creative Christmas wrapping, a friend gave them my name. I'm a gift bag kinda girl but thought I could make something up. And I did!
