emotionless - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
We are never emotionless, it is only a "pause" button to allow us to focus on defence matters.
Emotionless is the ice on a new wound, that's all. After that we need to warm up again and heal, that's how it is.
Emotional indifference is the opposite of love. We all need to have the ability for times of defence, yet it is as salt in a recipe, use sparingly and in good taste. Otherwise being emotionless will build your prefrontal cortex for cruelty and give you an inability to end your own loneliness. Your brain can switch gears depending on circumstance, so grow your awareness of your emotions in different situations. Then you will have real psychological maturity, real self control and will be able to build a secure life of love and goodness.
Being able to temporarily switch your emotions off is a natural defence against overloading pain into your empathy circuit. Be sure to re-engage your empathy circuit at first opportunity and process the pain, otherwise being stuck in an emotionless void becomes an unfortunate default mode.
