The reason emotions are so important in relationships may seem obvious, but it is not insignificant. As human beings, we use both our body and our mind. It is with our minds that we experience emotions.
Can you imagine a relationship devoid of emotion? Can you imagine a human devoid of emotion? Without emotion we would be machines. If we were machines it would not matter who you were paired with. Emotions are what make us human, and are what make life so enjoyable. After all what would a first kiss be without emotion? What would sex be without emotion? We would not watch television, read books, or do anything of the sort without emotion.
Love is one of the strongest emotions we can feel. Most of our actions are governed by emotions. So, in a relationship emotions are essential and critical. It is important to keep them under control. Without emotion we would not see the joy on the face of two new parents who get to hold their little child for the first time. We would not see the disappointment and determination of the infant learning to walk. In relationships emotions are what drive us to need one another, to rely on one another, and to help one another feel good, loved, wanted, accepted, and of course, needed!
Emotions are important in our relationships for various reasons:
1.They are what make us human.
2.They bind us to one another, keep us faithful, respectful, and help us have lasting marriages.
3.Emotions are what guide us to care for one another.
4.It is because of emotions that most of us are here, and it is through strong emotions in relationships that we continue to populate the earth. Very few people look at sex as a duty to procreate so that our kind does not die out. Emotion is what gives us the better view.
5.Without emotions we would not form the bonds that lead to family, community, and friendship, so people would be utterly alone.
So as trite and obvious as it seems, emotions are important to relationships. Trying to have an emotionfree relationship, or a no strings attached relationship where you do not allow yourself to get emotionally involved, is an impossibility. If you did not have emotion, you would be little better than a computer, and computers do not need companions. Instead of trying to have emotionfree relationships, embrace the power and beauty of emotion and the fact that it is through emotion that we find our humanity. Embrace the results that emotion bring, the improved relationships that occur when you stop shielding yourself and allow yourself to feel true emotion and feeling for one another. This is what good relationships are made of. Emotion is power!
