Exclamation Help with english text.

Hello!

I have written my thoughts. My native language is not English. So, I want to know about grammatical errors about my text, punctuation errors, etc. Criticisms are welcome.

-----------

What human feelings do I like?
...November 30, 2020
First of all, Feelings are various psychological states of a person that are created through a stable attitude to a particular object or object. Feelings, or as they are also called, emotions, are divided into two types: positive (happiness, joy, humor, or grace) and negative (fear, doubt, anxiety, or rudeness). One can't exist without the other, because you can't be happy or scared all the time.

As I said, there are a lot of emotions, but most of all I like this seven:

1. Inspiration. This is one of the most important feelings for a creative person.

2. Humor. In a broad sense, this is everything that can cause laughter, a smile and joy. I don't think society would be the same without humor.

3. Alarm. Although anxiety is a negative feeling, I like it in some ways. If I feel anxious, I know something is going to happen and I prepare for it mentally.

4. Peace. Peace is a state of calmness, serenity in thoughts and feelings, when everything is clear and understandable and there is no need for fears.

5. Interest. Interest is, as it were, an important human feeling. Due to it, a person learns something new or develops in a particular area (if he is interested in it).

6. Shame. As D said. Sad: "The Feeling of shame is a cowardly excitement that leads us away from the impure movements of the soul." Of course, shame is not a pleasant feeling, but as practice shows, shame is like a criticism for yourself, it helps you understand what you did wrong and next time you will not make the same mistake.

7. Hope. Hope always dies last, and that's a fact. To put it in the language of philosophers, hope is a positively colored emotion that arises when the expectation of the desired fulfillment is intense and anticipates the possibility of its fulfillment. The world is cruel and there is one "but" in this statement. If you rely too often on hope and luck, everything can turn out badly, both for you and for your loved ones. These are seven of my favorite feelings (emotions). Feelings and emotions are very, very, very important to a person. Without them, it is impossible to live, both happily and unhappily.

-----------

About: Feelings and emotions are very, very, very important to a person. Without them, it is impossible to live, both happily and unhappily.

I think.. correction must be:

Feelings and emotions are too important for a person. Without them, it is impossible to live, both happily and unhappily.

4. Peace. Peace is a state of calmness, serenity in thoughts and feelings, when everything is clear and understandable and there is no need for fears.

5. Interest perhaps consider curiosity instead of interest. Interest is, as it were, an important human feeling. Due to it, a person learns something new or develops in a particular area (if he is interested in it).

6. Shame. As D said. Sad: "The Feeling of shame is a cowardly excitement that leads us away from the impure movements of the soul."

I think.. correction must be:
Your use of very very very is OK provided you don't use it too frequently. Your use of too, as a correction, is not quite right. Consider using extremely in place of very very very
Feelings and emotions are too important for a person. Without them, it is impossible to live, both happily and unhappily.
Good job!

Slightly more accurate: Which human emotions do I like?

...November 30, 2020
First of all, Feelings are various psychological states of a person that are created through a stable attitude to a particular object or object.


Wrong capitalization: "First of all, feelings"
Did you intend "particular object or person"?


Feelings, or as they are also called, emotions, are divided into two types: positive (happiness, joy, humor, or grace) and negative (fear, doubt, anxiety, or rudeness). One can't exist without the other, because you can't be happy or scared all the time.

More accurate:
"(such as happiness, joy, humor, or grace)"
or
"(happiness, joy, humor, or grace, and so on)"


As I said, there are a lot of emotions, but most of all I like this seven:

Should be: "these seven:"

1. Inspiration. This is one of the most important feelings for a creative person.

2. Humor. In a broad sense, this is everything that can cause laughter, a smile and joy. I don't think society would be the same without humor.

3. Alarm. Although anxiety is a negative feeling, I like it in some ways. If I feel anxious, I know something is going to happen and I prepare for it mentally.

Slightly easier to read: "then I know something"

4. Peace. Peace is a state of calmness, serenity in thoughts and feelings, when everything is clear and understandable and there is no need for fears.

5. Interest. Interest is, as it were, an important human feeling. Due to it, a person learns something new or develops in a particular area (if he is interested in it).

More accurate:
"(if he or she is interested in it)"
or
"(if they are interested in it)
"

6. Shame. As D said. Sad: "The Feeling of shame is a cowardly excitement that leads us away from the impure movements of the soul." Of course, shame is not a pleasant feeling, but as practice shows, shame is like a criticism for yourself, it helps you understand what you did wrong and next time you will not make the same mistake.

Slightly easier to read: "so it helps you understand"
More accurate: "so next time you"

7. Hope. Hope always dies last, and that's a fact. To put it in the language of philosophers, hope is a positively colored emotion that arises when the expectation of the desired fulfillment is intense and anticipates the possibility of its fulfillment. The world is cruel and there is one "but" in this statement. If you rely too often on hope and luck, everything can turn out badly, both for you and for your loved ones. These are seven of my favorite feelings (emotions). Feelings and emotions are very, very, very important to a person. Without them, it is impossible to live, both happily and unhappily.

Much more clear: "one exception to this statement:"
Note the colon at the end.

Shorter and more formal: "emotions are extremely important"

-----------
Overall, this is very acceptable. Good job. I noted some things that could be improved, but most of the problems are minor. There were a few more improvements that I did not mention because they would be important only in formal writing, which this is not.
