Almost everyone on this site is experiencing, has experienced or eventually will experience this.
Our feelings are not as black and white anymore, they’re not strong or weak to the external stimuli imbued upon our senses; really it’s just a numbness, extirpating mental perturbation but concomitantly attenuating sensibility and emotions. It all produces either a state of equanimity or mental chaos, depending on your level of introspection…
Basically, our feelings aren’t as simple as they used to be. There used to be a rational support behind our behaviors and emotions; now there isn’t. It’s all a mess, and we feel numb to the outside world. This numbness either can calm a person, or lead them to ‘mental chaos.’
So my question to you all is: Is this numbness, this inability or this temporary inadequacy to ‘get in touch’ with our emotions good or bad? Or perhaps neither? Is it a good quality or not?
