Emotions are (chemical) flags/alerts that the system is out of balance. The alert should be examined because the adjustment may need to be internal, not external. The emotion is meaningful, though the first interpretation may be incorrect.

Basically, Umb’s reply simplified 😛

“Flag” and “alert” are terms I used to describe emotions with when I was a teenager to help myself put my them in their place. It helped me value them in a setting that devalued appeal to emotions (church, ironically), but it also put some distance between us and helped me to be objective about them.
