As human beings, there is nothing more familiar than the experience of emotions. Life experiences can rely on the emotion a person feels during any given time. Happiness and similar positive emotions can lead to a good, productive day.
Sadness, and similar negative emotions on the other hand can lead to lack of energy and unproductivity. It’s needless to say, emotions can have a significant impact on our well-being and state of mind.
If you thinks, it is difficult enough for a normal person to go through periods of feeling deep and uncontrollable emotions, then consider the possibility that some people go through these periods 24/7.
If you are an emotional person, or know someone who is, then this should make sense to you. Although characteristics vary from person to person, there is something a majority of emotional people have in common: According to Psych Central, most emotions in day-to-day life are experienced much more dramatically than the usual.
Even situations that wouldn’t normally be emotional suddenly become a big deal. Emotions can fluctuate several times in a short period of time, as drastically as laughing and crying within the hour.
Knowing the implications of being around an emotional person, some people may not have the tolerance for an emotional partner. Though they do have downfalls like any other normal person, it is worth remembering that there are also a lot of pros to outweigh the cons. Here are some reasons as to why having an emotional partner is seriously worth considering.
1. They have a unique view of the world.
Boring relationships are not for everyone. Since emotional people are generally affected by various stimuli differently to normal people, they have a deeper, more creative outlook on life according to an article from Create Your True Life. This can provide results ranging from more interesting conversations to different ways of decorating your house.
2. They hold greater sympathy for others.
Nothing is greater than knowing someone understands how you’re feeling. Especially when that person happens to be your significant other. Emotional people have the ability to feel what others are feeling, meaning something greatly affecting you will most likely affect them as well.
3. They usually put a lot of responsibility upon themselves.
We have all experienced moments wherein people deny responsibility associated with their actions. In a relationship, this kind of denial can lead to unnecessary arguments and weakens your basis of trust. An emotional partner knows when they are responsible for something, so yet another plus.
4. They pay great attention to details due to their sensitivity.
According to an article by Psych Central, emotional people are usually perfectionists. The results of this personality trait can vary from a very tidy household to a partner who actually remembers your birthday and who makes sure they don’t forget to buy anything from the shopping list.
5. They are more in touch with their inner emotions.
As a general rule, you can’t give something that you don’t have. So in a relationship, it is difficult to support a partner who is struggling with their inner emotions when you yourself are unfamiliar with your own mental struggles. An emotional partner is beneficial to those who may not be so comfortable with their emotional state.
6. They get the hidden meanings.
You don’t always have to verbally spout out your emotions just so your partner is aware of them. Emotional partners can pick up the subtle hints. No awkward emotion spillings or misunderstandings. Honestly, they understand without a word.
7. They have a good connection with others.
They do not have to be the most talkative people, but they will often have a good connection with their friends, partners, colleages and family members. This makes them good at working in groups and means that they probably connect in relationships really well, too.
8. They are very precise in their decision making process.
Decisions should not be made hastily. While it could take an emotional partner a bit longer than most people to make a decison, at least you know your partner’s decision was thought through.
9. They will cry when watching chick flicks as much as you do.
Being more emotionally reactive is a major factor in the lifes of highly emotional people, according to an article byHuffington Post. Mostly aimed at the ladies, the sensitivity of an emotional partner means that not only will they be more likely to watch chick flicks than a normal guy, but they will also probably feel the plot just as much as you do. No bribes needed!
10. They are highly conscientious people.
Rude people are not fun to be around, and you must be crazy thinking it’s not difficult to deal with a rude partner. The good news for people with emotional partners s that they generally have really good manners. They are self aware and know how they affect those around them. Needless to say, they wont be caught trash-talking the in-laws.
