Top Ten Emotions That Can Control Us

Some emotions seem to be able to take over your life, don't let this be you!

The Top Ten

1 Anger

The reasons why we see people in prison or a mental institute is that the force of anger has taken over, and they struggle to be able to get their lives back. So, make sure this doesn't take over your life. - Turkeyasylum

Who was it who said "Anger is one letter short of danger"? They were right. - Britgirl

When you're angry, reasoning doesn't make sense.
If you're angry at a person, everything they do seems to be directed to hurt you.

2 Greed

Money, things, and property. Those are the three things we all seem to want, but some people let this go way out of proportion. Just remember all you really need are the basic necessities, but of course, you can throw other stuff in, too. - Turkeyasylum

3 Sadness

Sometimes, people can be hard to cheer up when they had a bad day. This can be an everyday example. But some people go into this and cry every day after work or school. Help those who need happiness, and avoid letting this control who you are. - Turkeyasylum

4 Love

We all have that special someone... (Keyson, Britgirl, talking about you! ) However, there are a few cases where people commit to wrong doing, and their lovers follow suit. Just remember you are an independent person, too. - Turkeyasylum

5 Sentimentality

To a minor bit- keeping a picture of a relative that passed away. But, some people can't let anything go and begin to hoard. Just know when it's time for something to go. - Turkeyasylum

6 Arrogance

I'm controlled by this and angry more than anything. I have guts, I'll admit it. And keep in mind I'm a perfectly happy person. - Therandom

7 Obsession
8 Horror
9 Fear
10 Jealousy
