Either way our emotions do get in the way to your true love. We over think things, we feel upset for no reason, we just shut down, all from emotional caring.
I know I recently came to this discovery of myself. All of the issues I just listed were me, I was not a happy person at times and could not figure out why. The truth is I was never emotionally cared for, in fact I was told not to be emotional. Oh there were the times I really seemed emotionally happy and excited, with getting married, having kids, great jobs, and the good list goes on. But in true I was left alone without knowing what emotions really are.
