What you are feeling is something no one else can understand. The depth of your emotions, how invested are you in certain feelings, how some specific things distract you, how some things affect you. No one can exactly understand the extent of these things.
People sometimes use this phrase that “If you were in my shoes, you would know how I feel.” But I disagree with this statement even if they eventually go through the same situation or emotions as you are. No one knows how you will handle it. everyone has a varied mental capability to handle emotions, stress, and crisis emotion. Some people handle these things more appropriately and are little affected by these things in certain scenarios. While others are more vulnerable in regards to particular situations. Take for example some people are more emotional than others. Their feelings constantly influence their behavior. While some people are more logic-oriented having better control over their emotions.
My point is you can’t predict or know for certain, how some people are going to react to certain situations. How they are going to handle them. If you agree to this than you don’t have the right to label or judge someone by saying that they are being over-emotional or acting out. People often say that it wasn’t that much a big deal, why was he crying? Why was she being over-dramatic? Why is she talking so loudly? This wasn’t offensive, why is he mad?
The interesting thing is, our society expects us to behave in a certain way like they often say that his family member died why is he not crying? Or she is crying too loud and it seems fake, she shouldn’t cry that much. Society is always expecting an appropriate response in some inappropriate situations, but how is that even possible? People experience a rush of so many emotions in an unexpected situation, that they either go into a shock. And are unable to express any emotion at all. They either burst out with emotions so badly that they don’t care if they are talking or start yelling, crying, or screaming.
Truth is that we can never know for sure how much a situation or something we say or do can affect a person or how they are going to react to it. So, never expect a proper response from them for a particular scenario and try to be more understanding and empathetic!
