How Are All These Emotions Connected to both/either Love and/or Fear? (And Why Do I Obsess on the Latter?)

Gary Wilson & Marina Robinson (entelechyjournal.com/robinsonwilson.htm) tell us that--as many spiritual teachings (including one I got from a recent Bible-study)--all emotions spring from two: love and fear. Gary & Marina go on to further identify them as 'body-reactions that produce Oxytocin & Cortisol (respectively).' Maybe that's enough to show you how to correct some of the 'emotional illness' in your life (in short--the way Gary & Marina put it after doing some more of the scientific explanation--"Love tends to breed more love, and fear tends to breed more fear. It’s up to us.") But each situation is different. (If you see an emotion listed-below which you CAN'T see as connected to love/fear or -which you have experience with, discuss it in response below. Negative (Fear-connected?): Grief, Sorrow, Heartache, Sadness, Unhappiness, Depression, Hate/Hatred, Blame, Regret, Misery, Resentment, Threatening, Antagonism, Anger/Fury, Hostility, Shame, Insecurity, Self-consciousness, Bravado/Over-pride, Embarrassment, Worry, Panic, Frustration, Pessimism, Cynicism, Jealousy, Weariness, Pain, Anxiety, Fright (Positive (Love-connected?): Interest, Inspiration, Enthusiasm, Laughter, Amusement, Empathy, Curiosity, Cheer, Contentment, Calmness, Serenity, Peace, Trust, Bliss, Delight, Happiness/Joy, Pleasure (twice! ), Carefree, Ease, Satisfaction, Fulfillment, Hope, Confidence, Optimism, Passion, Harmony, Excitement, Gratitude, Kindness, Affection.) A 'Cortisol-heavy' situation, I explained here earlier (and don't want to 'produce MORE Cortisol by re-writing about it). However, that is immediately BEFORE an Oxytocin-heavy situation. On the same road-trip (later), I realized I had left a ring (which I bought that week) in the restroom a stop-or-two back, and I mentioned it to one of my co-campers. Before I could even think of asking her to, she had her intern call our friend who lived near the rest-stop to go get it and mail it to me. I guess that's the kind of 'act of love' that I like (like Job (of the Holy Bible's Old Testament) gave to God, like Jesus gives to His disciples, like another of my co-campers did more times that week than the few times she 'stimulated the Cortisol'): I want 'specific people' to show me love WITHOUT MY ASKING. But why don't I obsess on THOSE ACTS OF LOVE instead of the (relatively few) acts of fear?

Listing all the emotions (that I THOUGHT I had listed by putting in an image ... but the image wouldn't show ), I see that most of the 'fear'-emotions are just more like 'not quite enough Love'-emotions ... like if you're 'on the way to Fruit-of-Love' but someone/something stops you and blocks you and you can't see how you'll ever get to the Fruit you were seeking.
