Why is showing strong emotion so frowned upon in social settings? I don't understand the negative connotation.
Depends on where you are and the conversation. Debating brings out strong emotions, natrually. However, If someone where to come up to me and starts showing strong emotions out of nowhere..., of course one would be turned off. Its weird in my opinion...lolWhy is showing strong emotion so frowned upon in social settings? I don't understand the negative connotation.
Why is being 'animated' bad? I'm not quite sure that I catch your drift.You can still be very honest and very expressive without being overly animated, I think.
Oh no, I totally agree with you, there is nothing wrong with being honest. By animated I mean like those girls you see on telly who are like "OH. MY. GAWD. AND THEN SHE WAS LIKE AND HE WAS LIKE " and then you hear them scream in unison. I said earlier in my post that I thought showing strong feelings was generally not looked down on, but throwing a hissy fit is something different. Does that make sense? I guess I meant when people create a huge scene.Why is being 'animated' bad? I'm not quite sure that I catch your drift.
Generally, I prefer for the people who I'm around to be open with their feelings. It's better that way. If someone's angry with me, I'd rather have them spit it out than keep it inside. If I'm doing something that offends them, I can't fix it unless they tell me what it is.
