Our bodies are very efficient.  When we have a strong emotional response to an event, or experience emotional responses to a particular event over a period of time, our bodies learn to associate similar event with the emotions.  In this case, if an individual were to experience a similar event, the body would automatically produce the learned emotion. This stimulus - emotion association can be unlearned and replaced with one that better serves the individual.
