Name an emotion you have forgotten


I recently realized I have been so bitter and disappointed with everyone that I have literally forgotten the emotion of love over the course of 7-8 years. I just don't love...people. Idk that I have any mental health problems at this point, just a general dislike for people as a whole. My new years resolution (again) has been to be kinder, I'm hoping this could help me not fail again this year.

Most of them most of the time. Not that great at defining them when I do experience them either.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

Well I had to Google it to see how many there are and apparently there's 8 basic emotions, Surprise & Joy are probably 2 I have most trouble with.

Lol I googled it too. But I think I feel all of them to some extent. Even if it's 10%

I think other people say I don't show much excitement. But I am...I just have a very calm exterior 😂

So maybe that would be the most difficult one for me

Yeah. Joy is probably the main one that's getting more than a bit scarce. Trust is eroded quite a bit too. Not that I ever had much of that.

Trust.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

I'd say contentment, but that isn't really an emotion to physically express...

Happy?

Joy and anger. Probably for the same reason, living/working alone in an unchanging life doesn't give them opportunities. Trust I'm not sure about but I think I experience a degree of it.
