Unsafe Containers


Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?

I nearly asked my husband this, because I thought it would be interesting to hear his answer, and if that answer is different than mine. I know how I see myself isn’t necessarily how others see me. And how I show emotion probably differs too.

When I first was thinking about this, I thought of a bad emotion, however, my thoughts quickly turned to thinking how I react to a happy emotion…and which is harder to contain. The range is nearly endless…and I wonder how many I really do contain.


Ok…I wrote that earlier in the day with every intention to finish it and post. But something happened tonight in which disappointment set in, and I realize that that is the hardest to contain. I let the disappointment take control of my night, and thus, this post is nearly into the next day. I need to work to this.

As for the emotion I thought I couldn’t contain….the love for my husband.

And his response when I asked him…excitement and sadden.
