Feelings create responses that you cannot explain right away. Sometimes, you might try to suppress your real feelings instead of showing other emotions, appearing to others not as your real self. There are also those times when people act a certain way to receive a reward, so their intention is not pure.

Do not deny your feelings and always take care to express them in the way you really feel. This will go a long way for the health of your mind and relationships.
