    Apologies if I'm imposing with a hug and whatnot, but I have the same feels, sometimes.

    On my personal experience with self-loathing after emotional hurricanes:

    I feel most guilty because I feel like I let go, didn't carry it out properly, acted immaturely, on impulse, and didn't let myself think it through. It's also incredibly embarrassing. But depending on what it is that I get emotional about, I can think it's okay, if only because it means that I've accepted how important and real and sad whatever it is I'm thinking about really is.

    I understand self loathing... I do not understand the whole emotions thing... I can't even remember the last time I cried

    but then again, everyone's human and weirdness is to be expected... why bother getting down about it when you can just move on to the next thing? the past is done

    Because losing control of my facilities makes me question how in control of my life I am. It brings up a thousand existential questions and I want to break down and die.

    It goes away with my hangover, which typically lingers for about a day or two.

    This sounds all too familiar. You're not alone!

    I think a lot of it is linked to my perfectionism, trying to be perfect, (even if my rational side knows that's a futile endeavor), and when I have an emotional burst I am ashamed of myself for not keeping it under control.

    I would agree with your assessment. Emotions are for the "weak"?

    Self-loathing towards yourself for having that emotion is only justified if the emotion was rational. Of course sometimes people are just emotional and slack should be given, as we are all too emotional sometimes.

    This happens to me sometimes, usually after making a bad decision which I would not have made had I not been in an emotionally intense state.

    I have always been deeply emotional and sensitive, but at the same time highly logical and rational, so I think that latter part of me tends to despise the former, perhaps thinking it "weak". It is odd because it is a very subconscious dynamic seeing as how consciously I see great value in my emotional side.

    That's interesting. I do find I am highly critical of my emotions, almost paranoid that they are not rational, constantly second-guessing myself. Do you really think we are all too emotional sometimes? I want to believe that, but everyone else seems to hide it so well. Why are we all hiding it if it's such a commonality?
