What do you mean by negative emotions?
Posted 8/14/16 , edited 8/14/16
I'm in a field where most of the time I have to control my emotions. I try my best to be logical/rational because "emotions make you weak" and "feelings are irrelevant" Composure and logic is very important. Also, feelings are a waste of time sometimes. There are times when I'm sad but I don't have the time to feel sorry and cry because I have so many things to accomplish. Crying and feeling bad about the situation would get in the way of my productivity.

BUT no matter how enticing the thought of not feeling anything is, I prefer to be human. Otherwise, the world would be boring.

Only in like super embarrassing situations, other than that I like being able to feel things.

You would need a bit of both, or you would just be left with a grey world.
At times emotions can be annoying or a...bitch....
While other times, it just enchant your experience and maybe prevent you from depression

I still have emotions, but I don't remember the last time I felt anything. I'm not sad... I feel nothing.

Do you know what my picture is? I'm only asking because many people seem not to.

I've had my moment where I was "emotionless"
Lacking emotion sucks.
I would always say I felt 'neutral' on a daily basis.
Never happy, mad, or sad.
Unable to give two fucks about anything even if I tried or wanted to.
Life just felt dull for me (still is but I'd say its gotten better over time).
I wanted to feel something rather than not feeling anything at all.

I struggled for the longest time to get over that phase.
apparently I was depressed but im not too sure.. even if I was, I didnt want to accept it.

although being emotionless can be helpful during certain situations, id rather not feel that way again

Eh, as stated already it seems like such a boring way to live. Yeah, there are some terrible feelings I sometimes wish I didn't have to deal with, sure, but I feel like it just makes the good times and good feelings that much more special when good things finally happen.

“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.” - The Eleventh Doctor (Doctor Who series five - Vincent and the Doctor)

Feeling empty wouldn't be fun either. You would end up just going through the motions. You would react the way you thought people wanted you to react and when they figured out that you didn't give a shit either way, they would get frustrated and they wouldn't understand. They would just want you to change back into a "normal person." So life still wouldn't be easy, because you would still have to fake emotions even more than before (which would be exhausting) or deal with offended people all the time.

No, I don't wish I were emotionless or even unable to feel negative emotions. I have "turned off" sadness before, but I turned it back on. I wouldn't do so again, and would advise anyone against doing so. Imagine being unable to feel sad when someone you cared about dies. Logically, you know you should feel sad, and you even want to feel sad, but the feeling just isn't there. Being unable to get angry has it's problems as well. It can lead to people walking all over you.
