I like to think of my emotional state as being like a little internal choir or flame, flickering independently of the external social/emotional environment. There are somewhat distinct types of emotions, such as certain shade of irritation (caused by something like being talked down to), which differs from the anger I might feel in reaction to unfairness. It’s similar with happiness. The bubbly bliss I might feel from writing secret poems differs from the more muted and soft contentment I feel talking to close family members, for example. 🙂
I can also be nostalgic and want to revisit places from my Childhood (yes, that’s with a capital “C” :)). In fact, once when I was visiting home in Pennsylvania, I walked from my house to my old house I lived in until I was almost 10! The walk was probably over an hour!
As for empathy, I tend to relate to others by imagining how I would feel in their situations.
I love personification and have been told I even have a way of giving life to objects in my writing.
