第四部分 任务型阅读(共10小题;每小题0.5分,满分5分)

Someone once said to me, “You do show your emotions, but you rarely express your feelings.” What does this sentence mean? If I am showing my emotions through facial expressions, body language, or words, then how can I hide my feelings? Well, the answer is simple. Feelings are deeper than emotions. The face can express many emotions, but it can easily mask what the heart truly feels.

Emotions are physical signals that our body is constantly giving us. They occur before you realize it. If you are experiencing fear, you may instantly start panicking, sweating, trembling, etc.. But, once the factor that resulted in the fear has gone, you will be perfectly fine. Basically, emotions can come and go. However, feelings stay. Different emotions accumulate (积累) over time, and as our brain consciously understands them, they transform into feelings. However, while two people may experience similar emotions, their feelings may not be the same. Personal experiences and personalities play an essential role in determining what you feel. Feelings are much richer, have many more layers, and run a lot deeper than emotions. As a result, it is quite tough to get rid of them.

For example, you are checking the results of an important exam, and you are obviously anxious, which is an emotion. You pass the exam with flying colors, and you don’t feel anxious any more. Now, consider another scenario (情境) — you fail or get fewer marks in the exam, and then you develop another feeling—worry. Thus, you may worry every time you are given an exam, because you fear to get fewer marks. For another example, someone’s actions may annoy or anger you. These are emotions, which may eventually make you feel bitterness towards that person. Here, bitterness is a feeling.

According to neuroscience, emotions are nothing but chemical reactions. These develop as we react to certain stimuli (刺激物). As we start becoming aware of these emotions we begin to understand our feelings better. Your morals and beliefs will play a major role in shaping your feelings. Feelings sustain, whereas emotions are not permanent (永久的), and can be extremely strong.

As you can see, emotions and feelings are just two shades of the same color. But this difference is very important. The key to a successful life is to understand and manage your emotions better. You may not be able to change your emotions, but you can change your feelings. Of course, it is easier said than done. But remember, feelings are nothing but thoughts, on a subconscious level, and thoughts can be changed.

My Treasures

In our life, we have treasures like money, houses and cars, etc. However, we have a lot more hidden treasures, such as knowledge, health and experiences. As a senior student, I think the most important treasures in our life are friendship and ideals.

Friendship means a lot to me. I always share sorrows and joys with my friends. Often we offer help each other. Without friends, we would feel lonely and our life would be colorless. Besides friendship, ideals also play an important role in our life. Ideals act as lights in darkness, guiding us forward. Inspired by ideals, we’ll keep moving on. I think a person without ideals is one without hope.

However, how can we win true friendship? In my opinion, we should first learn to communicate. Also, it’s important to be generous and kind to others. Learn to give rather than take. As to ideals, ask ourselves what our strengths and weaknesses are and where our interests lie so as to make it clear what we want to be when we grow up. In this way, we can set up ideals, which we will live up to.
