I think the demand for emotion gets to the point where we hallucinate something to get excited about. I would much rather be unemotional and get things confidently right. Saves wear and tare on the nerves.
For me I wish I felt emotions. I once stopped taking my medication because I was such a zombie. I just wished I could feel happiness and joy, and even the bad emotions. But it was too much and I went back on my old medications.
I know at an early age I invented an entire world because I was bored waiting with my parents while they were waiting where we kids couldn’t play, we had to sit down and shut up…then the thinking began.
