The complete beginner's guide to emotional buffering

Avid learners use a dictionary

Emotional buffering is a newer term so I decided to get a better understanding. The avid learner in me always starts with the dictionary.

An emotion is a natural, instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood or relationships with others. An emotion is felt within the heart and body, instead of thought of with the mind.

To be emotional is to be aroused or characterized by intense feeling.
