Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Capturing a Feeling

Do you know the difference between Emotions, feelings & moods?

I know you are taking time because you started thinking. No problem. I shall explain.

Emotions- lasts less than 6 seconds and is the instant result of a trigger reaction inside the brain from the external causes. It can result in a positive or negative experience. As emotions getting replaced by feelings, one can notice the facial changes.

Feelings-lasts longer than emotions and feelings are the result of emotions getting expressed either physically or mentally. It’s a subjective expression. Others can make out from your face.

Moods-It’s the way one feels at a particular time. It can be environmental (weather, surroundings), physiologic (how we feel based on our habits), and mental status. Moods can last in a minutes, hours or days

I know majority of vocalists make weird faces while singing. My passion… singing……I don’t care how my face looks while singing,sweet ,crooked,ugly or funny .You are not here to see my face   but get immersed in my voice.  “No face is ugly unless the mind is ugly!”  Mehmet Murat ildan



Admiration-Just watch the student’s eyes.Here the child student is admiring his masters explanation regarding tips for parota ( layered flat bread) making. “When the student is ready,the teacher will appear” Buddhist proverb


Feelings-Are you ready to fight ?

“Nothing can bring you peace,but yourself.”           Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sadfishing is the new buzzword.

Urban dictionary defines ‘Sadfishing’ as

“The practice of writing about one’s unhappiness or emotional problems on social media, especially in a vague way, in order to attract attention and sympathetic response.”

This term became more popular after celebrities like Justin Bieber and Kendal Jenner used social media to express the amount of pressure they undergo,being under constant spotlight.

Opening up oneself to the internet can have either positive or negative impact,mostly negative.

  • People may want to have a sympathetic ear and build a supportive network online so that they can feel better.
  • Sensitive people can get bullied and can go into further depression.
  • Some indulge in these tricks for comments and likes and young minds can not differentiate between genuine feelings or sadfishing.
  • In some situations people may even ask for donations etc.

I feel sadfishing is just another attention seeking format.

Researchers have warned that sadfishing is threatening teenagers’ mental health,since many of them due to fear of parents, seeking solace online.And parents must not ignore child’s emotional outbursts.

Online expression of emotions is a bad idea,since either one may get bullied or given wrong advice.Finding genuine advice is rare.

Please share your thoughts.

Thanking you
