The Purpose of Emotions

“Why are you even here?!” I asked Doubt, angrily. “What have you ever done for me besides make me hate myself?”

“I made you strive for Confidence,” Doubt replied.

“And you, Anger, what about you? What have YOU ever done for me besides steal precious time?”

Anger replied, truthfully, “I made you appreciate Peace.”

I turned my attention to Grief. “You are the worst of them all! What possible purpose can you serve me?” I wailed.

Grief replied softly, “I’ve made you grateful for everything else.”
