Emotions are incredible.
Like how one feeling can change the world.
For the better or worse. 
One emotion can create a life.
One can take a life away.
I don't think there is anything more powerful than human emotions. 
And no one else on this entire planet can control anyone else.
Your emotions are in your hands.
You have complete power over them.
Sure, sometimes someone "makes" you mad. Or sad. Or happy.
But they don't really.
Because no one can make you feel anything.
You feel all on your own. 
So if we have total power over our feelings, why do we hurt?
You'd think that no one would ever want to feel the pain of despair and depression. 

So why do we?

If what I'm saying is true, then why would anyone put themselves through so much torment?
It's simple. 
We have to feel sorrow to feel happiness. 
What would feel good about acing a test if you never knew what it was like to fail one?
A beautiful picture would be just another picture if there were no bad ones. You can't have one with out the other. 
But don't let the bad feelings and emotions make your entire life miserable.
Acknowledge them, and then forget about them. 
If it's not love, then simply let it go.
Control your emotions. 
But don't forget to feel.
