Behaviour is more often than not influenced by experience. For instance if you are sad, you prefer to stay aloof, happy occasion probably makes you angry or irritable and so on and so forth. It can be concluded that our behaviour is directly proportional to our thoughts and our thoughts are influenced by emotions/feelings. This triad is interdependent and forms the foundation for any relationship.
Being happy usually is displayed through a smiling face, positive attitude.
Being sad is displayed through a gloomy face, negative attitude.
These behaviours are concluded because they are displayed. This begs the question of behaviours that aren’t displayed? Un-displayed behaviour is bound by restrictions like gender, religion etc which in turn affects the thought process (you try to adhere with the societal norms and suppress the real thought). This has a profound effect on your emotions. For instance: you tend to get addicted to alcohol to heal yourself. When sufficient time and space is not provided for an individual to heal (death of a loved one, death of a relationship, betrayal etc) they tend to turn to something that soothes their psyche. Inability to convey certain emotions also affects behaviour. This is best explained when more often than not a Male may place their feeling as either “angry” or “frustrated”. In certain situations, their inability to connect deeper triggers a rather emotional or physical violent behaviour. Females on the other hand may not be an expert in placing their emotions but their emotional realm probably is wider than anger and frustration. For instance: they will recognize when they feel sad or disappointed or scared or confused. There is whole range of emotions that females connect with and don’t mind displaying it too.
This disparity has led to dilution of relationships and hence an effort is being made by counsellors all over to enable an individual to connect with their feelings. This interconnect of behaviour, thoughts and emotions are paramount in dealing with self.
