    Simply stated, this metaphor compares a person's emotions to the design of a rollercoaster at an amusement park. There are high peaks, low valleys, and many twists and turns.

    A person who is going through a divorce might experience an 'emotional rollercoaster'. One minute there may still be a strong feeling of love for the spouse but at the same time there may be intense anger or bitter disappointment at what the spouse has done to the marriage.

    A parent of a very ill child may experience an emotional rollercoaster when one doctor provides hope for a full-recovery but another doctor says the illness is terminal.

    Are these examples helpful to you?
