    Does anyone know whether emotional supression to the extreme is moraly right which is better?. To be very emotional or to be emotional supressed to very high points.

    I mean I really like myself, I just stop using caffeiene and now its making me emotional. This is really a strange and abnormal thing for me!.

    Showing your emotions at the right time is appropriate. Supress your emotions when appropriate. If you supress all of your emotion all of the time people will become detached from you and if you show emotion all the time they may also become attached. Try and stay in the middle. If its caffeine thats the problem cut off it, your on it too much. Replace it with water and plenty of it. Believe me drinking water hydrates and wakes you up far more than caffeine can do.

    There are appropriate times to show emotion as well as hide it. I would never want my emotional response to bias my scientific work, yet showing love and compassion to my hubby builds a very strong, stable relationship. I think the healthiest (mentally) individuals are the most balanced when it comes to emotions.
    I expect the worst but hope for the best.

    Like the others have said, it's all about moderation.

    Showing no emotions at all makes it very difficult to form relationships with other people. Emotions are common to all humans, so acting as though you have none isn't considered normal, and makes you difficult to relate to. It also makes you seem less trustworthy; how can a person with seemingly no emotions care much about anything, let alone the interests of other people?

    However, showing too much emotion isn't considered normal either; all people have emotions, but all people should also have at least some self control. Again, this also makes you seem unreliable and untrustworthy - if you can't control your own emotions, how can you control any of your behaviors?

    Emotions are both necessary and often difficult to deal with. Every person has to learn how to walk the middle line, and it's easier for some than it is for others.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    At the risk of sounding redundant, emotions should be kept in check when making important decisions. In some cases you may want to take your emotional state into account with what you are trying to accomplish (ie. love) but personally I find it best to supress them most of the time as emotion tends to cloud your judgement. You have to let your emotions run free once in a while but it's usually not a wise thing to do around people you don't trust implicitly.

    Some consider that tantric sex requires the ability to control one's emotions, if not suppressing one's orgasm.

    Is that right?
