Emotion is complex, and the term has no single universally accepted definition. Emotions are mental states that arise spontaneously, rather than through conscious effort. It is unclear whether animals or all human beings experience emotion. Emotions are physical expressions, often involuntary, related to feelings, perceptions or beliefs about elements, objects or relations between them, in reality or in the imagination. The study of emotions is part of psychology, neuroscience, and, more recently, artificial intelligence. According to Sloman [1], emotions are cognitive processes. Some authors emphasize the difference between human emotions and the affective behavior of animals. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotion)

The emotional experiences determine how we look at the world in turn. Experiences are a part of our daily life and we come across different things and different types of people every now and then. Every person is entitled to his/her own kind of emotion and that is the reason why we have the emotional quotients for the people to measure how do they react to different emotional situation.

For me the most emotionally charged experience was when I had my first break up. I was fully charged with emotion and the predominant factor was that of pure rage and anger. It was disappointing as well as embarrassing but more than anything else. It was a real frenzy that had my mind blocked off completely and I could not think straight for a long while. The rage was not directed towards the other person for letting go off me or because she ditched me but because I felt that I gave her that much of leverage to do so. I felt that I should not have done that.

We all make mistakes and nobody likes to think that he/she is wrong. Even then why on earth would someone just decide to walk out...
