My emotions are rather dull. I don’t know how they compared to regular people’s, though.

For a very long time I even doubted whether I was capable of feeling love (instead of just mouthing the words). Eventually I found out that I am capable of loving, but it doesn’t come easily. I guess I’m just too self-centered.

It was a breakthrough for me to even begin to understand 'emotional management'

I've been so strung out or depressed all my life , I didn't even comprehend emotions as something that could be managed.

I was superstitious about messing with something that even though it hurt , it was authentic.

My precious madness. ?

Have been way more 'chill' lately , but thats with less external stress.
- real world turbulence will test my 'calmness' ....

( me being calm ? did I even write that ? it;s all fake I tell you !! )

I'm sensitive and pretty high strung, so I guess I'm emotional. I can put on a good show though, and can also go for long periods being pretty stable and down to earth. I seem to swing between coming off as a mature man in his thirties and a child stuck in a man's body.

I only cry when I see other people cry, or am on the brink of breaking myself.

But other than that, I'm incredibly sensitive to other peoples' emotions, even in movies/tv shows, and more oblivious to my own if that makes sense?

My therapist is always asking how certain things make me feel and I can only shrug and say "I really don't know."

Depends on your definition of emotional
Feeling emotions.

I cry in movies, though. First time I ever cried in a movie was at Spock’s death in Star Trek II.
I've felt sad a couple times because of movie/tv deaths. Never felt sad about anything else.

I can tell that other people are more emotional than me based on how they talk, act, and react.
