I really, really, REALLY empathize with those emotional moments, how draining they are, and then feeling (pretty) certain it's better than feeling numbed out. I've been grappling with this question for years, and I like to think of it as a Cedar Point allegory: are the roller coasters better than the river boat ride?

While that metaphor is a bit rough, since the "downs" are part of the fun on the roller coaster, but you know what I mean. I really think sometimes I'd rather feel something than be numbed out, but I find myself becoming more and more numbed out. It becomes more and more logical.
