As far as i understand it our immotions are created by our minds..so if you are needy then you have created it your self .....unless its left over from a deprived childhood where you where negleted and unloved then you are looking for what you never had i suppose.....but i believe you can work on this by building up your self asteem then you will not be as needy and rely on other people try to be more indipendant...
love your self list all your good assets and qualities !!!
For instance: The immotion of jealousy...... is the fear of loss !!
So to cure this you need lots of self asteem !!
so what is needy ??
Im not sure which are natural immotions like .... sad -angry - happy- fear etc
Research it and you may find the answer say on Google or Wikipedia etc ?? research needy !!
This is only my opinion and im no expert its only how i feel you can help to reduce how needy you are and how i would try to handle this problem !!
mmm emotion is defined as instinctive feeling as opposed to reasoned response. eg one could have an emotional respnse to something crying for example when something awful happens at work rather then a reasoned logical response like giving instructions to solve the problem, ( not a great example sorry!) neediness is not an emotion however it is 'emotional' eg driven by strong emotions. If I 'need' a hug the 'need' isnt the emotion driving me its the sadness, happyness, etc that drive me.If I need to be with my child its not the 'need' that makes me want it , its the love, fear etc if i need to call my husband a million times to hear him say he loves me in one day then thats fear ... the neediness is how the emotion may manifest it's self, probably depending on the individual I would Imagine. thats my take on it, just another opinion!!! winnie
some sciance for you....................Emotions are for the most part regulated by the amygdala ( a part of the brain). This is the area in the limbic system of the brain that deals with emotions, especially fear and anger. The amygdala is about the size of a walnut and is located directly in the center of the brain. The connection from the cerebral cortex to the amygdala is rather large, that is why it is more common that incentives to act are based on emotional feelings rather than logical facts...............
