Hello there, Chemist,
It's good to see you around here. Yes, I first learned about LeChatelier's principle in General Chemistry, which was primarily Inorganic Chemistry. We used the principle a bit in Organic Chemistry. I think what the original poster might be referring to is something that would be more appropriately called "homeostasis," but even if we do re-label this discussion, it would take an enormous leap to apply these principles to human beings and emotions.
