{relativity...or not}

how can emotions be measured? perhaps they can't because different people have different expectations, different hearts. we do not all feel the same things and to understand fully somebody else's feelings is not an easy thing. how can one describe?

happiness? you might say, very happy or kind of happy or not really happy, but what is very,kind of and not really? well i guess you could say very happy is more than just happy, and so on and so forth. what one person may call happy,what another person may not even know how to feel... language cannot utterly describe something that may seem so simple. that's similar to asking someone 'what does a strawberry taste like?' simple question, difficult answer. sweet? sour? fragrant? but that would also describe a million other things...

emotions and feelings have a complexity beyond comprehension.

everything seems relative to one another, an endless row of bottles of coloured sand, each differing slightly from the next, each having slight variations in shades and patterns, each without the ability to replace another.
