How the brain works, how memories are formed, how emotions affect a person, “Brain Team” will be these professional terms about the secrets of brain operation with a vivid image, the picture is delicate and beautiful, needless to say, the storyline is moving, the real world and the virtual world of brain operations perfectly together, can not help but wonder: what kind of people can have such a rich imagination and creativity!

Riley is dominated by five emotions together – happiness, sadness, anger, fear and disgust. These five emotions live in Riley’s brain headquarters. When Riley moved to San Francisco, the new environment and new life of discomfort, while happy but manipulating the control center to prevent other negative emotions “attack”, especially sadness as the “plague” emotions, so the emotions out of control! …… plot I will not reveal much, after all, spoilers are disgusting, I do not want people to read my article with disgust. The main talk about the feelings after watching the film.

I feel more deeply is the “sadness”, sadness is expressed in the form of crying, how many “sadness” people have to experience in their lives?

From a physiological point of view, weeping not only promotes the development and expansion of the lungs, but also facilitates the development of the muscles that speak and sing.

A baby’s crying is his language, a way to express his own requirements, hungry, thirsty, wet diapers, uncomfortable all to cry to attract the mother’s attention. The promptness of the mother’s response affects the establishment of the child’s sense of security.

Children have stable emotions and are able to use language to regulate their emotions by about age 7. The social nature of emotional responses is further enhanced in this age group. The attitudes of others have a direct impact on children’s emotional responses. They are sensitive to the feelings of their parents and peers and regulate their emotional expressions according to the feelings of the target audience, deciding to express or mask their true emotions and realizing that expressing negative emotions may cause harm to others.

“If you are not a particularly alert child and do not immediately stop crying at the command of your parents or elders to forbid crying, the next step will be the relentless threat: “I don’t want you if you still cry “, hearing that you are going to be abandoned you cry more fiercely, followed by the threat: “If you cry again I will sell you, drive you out to the tiger to eat you …… “Finally because of fear you had to close the sound.

Happy characters are parents who have no empathy, trapping grief in a small circle, tightly controlling her seizures and abandoning her. Eventually grief feels worthless.

When children grow up, they do not know how to express themselves, because the real emotions have been suppressed. Although grown-ups have the ability to think for themselves, but how do people who have not been empathized with have the ability to empathize with others? Often, because of the low frustration tolerance generated by the inability to face difficult situations, repressed negative emotions are more likely to be expressed in the form of anger.

When there is no proper way to express normal negative emotions, the accumulation to a certain extent will be like a volcanic eruption. The news sometimes reports cases of killing wives, husbands, and entire families, and these suddenly become out-of-control murderous demons excluding mental problems instead of good old-fashioned people who never seem to lose their temper on the surface.

Once in a group of students discussing parenting, a mother said, “You can’t lose your temper in front of the kids”.I disagreed: “Throwing a tantrum is a normal negative emotional performance, if you do not have a normal emotional performance in front of the children, the children will not have a normal emotional performance, parents are the best role model for their children”.

Negative emotions are bad is a big misconception, is it possible for people to be happy all the time? It goes without saying that healthy negative emotions are also a way of expressing human emotions, and it is only normal to have sad emotions when you encounter setbacks, the death of a loved one, or a change in circumstances. We are not discussing unhealthy negative emotions here, such as depression, anxiety, etc. that may result from prolonged excessive sadness.

Riley, driven by anger, is determined to leave home and return to her original hometown. At this point, all the islands of personality in Riley’s mind have collapsed, and the emotional console is out of control. Only the touch of worry makes Riley wake up to her faults and take the initiative to return to her mom and dad’s side. This is the climax of the film, but also many people do not understand the place.

Why is it that when all the other emotional villains are helpless, only Sadness can restart the emotional control panel? This may seem like a plot need to whitewash Sadness, but it is, in fact, to emphasize the importance of Sadness as an integral part of growing up. From the inability to adapt to the new environment to the whole process of running away from home, Riley always repressed herself, hoarding untold sorrow and despair in her heart. This excessive repression prevents Riley from understanding her true feelings or solving the underlying problem of her “unhappiness”. So, when worry comes, Riley lets out her long-deposited grief and regains her connection to her emotions, so the emotional console is successfully restarted.

At the end of the film, Riley cries and reveals to her parents how unhappy she is to be in a new environment, and her mom and dad comfort Riley with words of understanding, making her feel the warmth of home and shed tears of happiness. It turns out that tears, not only the bitter taste, but also the sweetness of happiness. The film does not directly tell us where the scorned sorrow is good, and does not tell us, in the face of the cruel but unchangeable reality, we should be what emotions self-healing. But every minute of the film leads us to see a truth: life is complicated, and so are emotions. From a single emotion to a complex interplay of emotions is a growth.

We tend to cling to an absolute happiness, the ideal vision of pure happiness, can not allow a little bit of sadness to stain. But this absolute, because of the lack of ideal reality support, because against the complexity of life, so once encountered frustration, it will bow to the difficulties, useless.

Childhood, either happy or sad; and growing up, is a handicraft of mixed sorrow and joy.
