are some emotions learned?

emotions are elicited responses, but i wonder if there are some emotions that can be learned. for example you see someone sad about certain situation, and then a similar situation comes to you and you react the same way, would it be because you have seen it from someone else already, so you unconsciously react the same way that the other person did?or is just "naturally"comes from you?would our reactions towards some situations be different if we didnt see it from other people?
