My most dominant emotion: Sympathy
What are the advantages and disadvantages of sympathy?
The advantage of being very sympathetic is being empathetic of others and the ability to feel what they are feeling. Ever since I can remember I have been hyper sensitive to my emotions and those around me.
The disadvantage of being sympathetic is I’m like an emotional sponge soaking up other people’s feelings. Being sympathetic can also cause me to be deeply hurt by others. When someone is angry it can negatively affect my mood for days.
Second most dominant emotion: Compassion
What are the advantages and disadvantages of compassion?
There are many advantages being compassionate that serve me well in so many ways. People respond to the compassion I show in a very positive way and appreciate my selflessness.
A disadvantage is that my compassion sometimes gets taken for granted or shrugged off like they don’t care. One of my deepest desires is to be liked and accepted by others and showing compassion can make me vulnerable.
Third most dominant emotion: Depression
What are the advantages and disadvantages of depression?
There are several advantages to having depression believe it or not. When I’m depressed I can empathize better with others which helps me express my first most dominant emotion, sympathy. Also, I am MUCH more creative when depressed and create some of my best art and writing!
Unfortunately, the disadvantages are far more numerous than the advantages. Some of the many include a lack of energy, being unmotivated, moody, withdrawing from people, loss of interest, loss of appetite, stress, and a profound sadness are some disadvantages of my depression.
