I have come to realize that I get real emotional over almost anything since I have gotten older. It has helped me in life though because of this, I now right. I can tap into my emotions better, and I use to hide them. Sometimes it gets on my nerves though.

Everything does seem to get put into perspective a bit more and we tend to be more in touch with the emotional element. At least that is what it seems, where people tend to get upset, angered, or pleased to an absolutely greater degree when they get older. For the younger generation, they have not really had an attempt to appreciate life to its fullest. There are times where emotions can be great, but emotions can get the better of us all in a lot of the time. There are just going to be a lot of times where emotions bubble to the surface and rather cause us to really struggle with mentally dealing with our emotions, so they do not overwhelm us. Yet people tend to get more in tune with these things as they live the life.

As one advances in age, so thus our body system and with that also goes our mental behavior. The sensitivity issue varies depending much on chemical reaction imbalance in our system caused by high blood pressure, the psychological factors such as the level of maturity, etc. So, i guess being emotional is just a normal reaction as one grows old, lol!

Aging is a gift of life, you should cherish every year you have.
