    Love is the most difficult emotion to handle for some people, because some people betray other people they are in-love with. Love is not just an emotion but it's an action, The most fulfilling things on earth to achieve is "love." The people that find real romantic love in their lives are blessed. I love my children in a nurturing way, this love is the best I have right now.

      Love for your children is a great thing to have. Being in love can be difficult, but very rewarding. Your heart picture is cool. Thanks for answering.

    Frustration. When I get frustrated, all of my common sense flies out the window and I turn immediately to food to soothe those helpless feelings.

    I  find any emotion can be difficult to handle...I chose years ago to try to keep an even keel so as to not expose myself to patients and staff where I did my residency..it helped me to deal with the  pain/suffering and death of patients..although bedside manner was imperative to me..I feel self discipline is very important in dealing with life and the crap that goes with it..we need to be able to prioritize an throw the garbage out..why fight the system ? we will never win that battle, so learn to let it go..Emotions are part of life..just handle them the best of your ability...just my thoughts..and great question...

    The feeling of being alone. It's kind of hard to get over; you could simply just go out and find somebody to keep you company, but there is still a feeling of loniness.

    I find that anger is the most difficult emotion for me to handle, because I do not want to say anything I will regret when I'm angry.....Actually, I don't get angry too often, but when I do, I just don't like how I feel when that emotion comes....and what I normally have done, is to give that anger to the Lord and ask Him to take that burden from me, to give me His peace and His Love for whomever has caused me to feel this anger.....& then I choose to forgive that person.  Also, whenever possible, I speak directly to the person who I have felt angry with, whether it is my dad or sister or brother or other family member or a co-worker....& this way, I don't hold on to the anger, and also, by speaking to the person who I was angry with, it normally diffuses that emotion....and then I forget about it.

      I don't get angry easily, I'm glad you've found a way to deal with your strong emotion.

    For me, the most difficult emotion to handle for me is sorrow. It's very hard to hold back tears for me.

    To be among many people is very difficult for me. I don like to much to be with people. I prefer to be lonely and then I am very much at peace whatever it is.
    Thank you.

    It is difficult for me to show emotion to others around me. Even my shocked expression seems fake. It's kind of sad.

    I am of the view that emotion generated out of love between two hearts is the toughest one to handle. Its feeling though gives fragrance and pleasure but when the emotional situation occurs, the entire sense organs come all together to make you feel helpless.

    It is a toss up but in the end I think it would be anxiety.  I get such extreme anxiety that I will literally shake as I talk where you can see me in the back of the room of a hundred people and I am visibly shaking.  It is a result of obsessive compulsive disorder.  I hate chaos and disorganization the most with my OCD and my mind will buzz and I will get really agitated until its perfect.  I am petrified of public speaking and my anxiety will take over and its like I can't think normally until it goes away and that can be awhile.  I get really anxious if there are a lot of people talking all at once and loudly and again, the anxiety overtakes my senses.  I am on medication for this now so that it doesn't interfere anymore but thats why its my hardest because I have tried everything to stay off meds and can't handle it at all...if you are talking more like sadness, happiness, emotional kind of stuff...than definately someone hurting me and I feel like I am heartbroken...strong heartache I can't deal with.

    Feeling of loneliness, isolation, trust and resentment....know people who stopped trusting outside world and do not let anyone to get under their hard shell, resenting people from the past and are suspicious of people in the present...what a terrible way to live your life:)

    disappointment. When I am disappointed with myself it's as if my brain is about to crumble. I cannot do anything except go to sleep and wake up in a better mood. It's very strange, I just lose the will to do anything I wanted to do previously. I do think that it is linked with depression.

      Oh dear, that sounds quite dramatic. At least you've found a way to cope. Thanks for answering.

    Fear. That emotion has the strength to overcome any other emotion. It's the one that causes us to make decisions out of panic, desperation, and instinct rather than common sense, logic and experience. Fears are also many times misinterpreted. What we think may be a fear, may be a warning of danger. It may be a detourant of doing something harmful to ourselves. Fear of doing an action may not be fear of the action. It may be a fear of failing. Are we afraid of heights or afraid of falling? Many times we experience fear, we really don't know exactly what we are afraid of. How can we handle something when we don't know what we are handling? When someone figures it out, I hope they let me know.

      Thought provoking. Fear can seem to take over us sometimes, but how about love conquering fear when a person rescues a loved from in a dangerous situation? Thank you for joining in.

      You're a nice person, but if they aren't a loved one, would you let them suffer or die? Probably not. I believe the situation and action you describe are more instinct than emotion. But, what do I know. Thanks.
