Why You Might Feel Like the Most Emotional Person in the Room?
The reason why you might feel like the most emotional person in the room is because your mind is not functioning properly. Your brain does not function well when it comes to dealing with stressors. When you are under pressure or under stress, your body releases hormones which cause you to experience emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger and sadness. These emotions are normal reactions to situations and they serve a purpose. However, if these emotions become excessive then you will start feeling them even though there is no real threat present.
When you have feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger or fear, your heart rate increases and blood vessels constricts causing you to sweat profusely. If this happens often enough, your skin may turn pale and your breathing becomes shallow due to the increased stress level. You may begin to shake, sweat profusely and have difficulty concentrating. If you continue to experience these symptoms regularly, you could develop a condition known as anhedonia (lack of pleasure).
Anhedonia causes you to lose interest in activities that used to bring enjoyment such as eating, sleeping and socializing. This condition can lead to depression or other mental health issues.
If your emotions get out of hand, you might act impulsively without thinking things through first. Fear makes you want to run away, anger makes you want to lash out and anxiety makes you want to avoid the situation.
Some people claim that their emotions are more intense and vivid than other peoples. These people describe their feelings in more detail than others do. They also have very strong feelings about moral and ethical issues. Some of them even have delusions or hallucinations that involve their senses.
