Anticipation is one of the most intense emotions a person can feel. There are many emotions that guides a person. Hate, Anger, Fear are all present in a person and while almost every emotion has the strength of reducing the reasoning faculties of a person to naught, each one is an experience of deep motivation for action, this one stands out.
While other emotions are due to an experience. You find yourself in peril, you feel fear; someone hurts you, the Hate emotion comes into place. You get this horrible feeling inside of yourself towards a situation you can’t do anything else about, feel free to experience Hate.
But what if nothing has happened yet. You are waiting. A bead of sweat forms on your forehead, wets your brow and crossing the whole face carries towards your neck. You have not been running or jumping or even walking. You were sitting on a chair, probably tapping your left foot unconsciously. That is anticipation. It consists of all the emotions in one- Fear of what might happen, happiness of what should happen, anger at what could happen. All the emotions staggering together in one bundle of joy called anticipation.
Mind you, unlike other emotions it cannot be found every now and then. To get a piece of this emotion you need to do something big. Something worth the wait. And then it will come!
The mother of all Schrodinger’s cat. Go feel it!
