“You are being way to emotional.”
I am going to guess that we have probably all have been told that a time or two in our lives. I know that I have. In my own experience I began to believe that emotions were an awful thing unless you were happy. But then what do you do when life happens, and those “happy” emotions are overtaken with the ones that people don’t want to hear about? You bury them, and you don’t talk about them because let’s be real here… Not alot of people are willing to hear the parts of you that aren’t so happy all the time.
Sometimes I think we are all partly zombie with the way we react to things. I mean let’s think of a time when you were having a really crappy day and somebody asks you how you were doing. Our natural response is to say, “I’m great, how are you?” Maybe it would just be easier to keep pretending, I’m not sure. But for me, I don’t want to live like that.
Pain is sometimes envitable, and dude sometimes it freaking sucks. But you learn from it and grow from it… if you allow yourself too. Life isn’t just full of painful moments, but there are the happier parts too. I have come to realize I’m not able to enjoy the happier moments, without having first dealt with the painful parts.
What I am trying to say here and the point of this is to say that it is more than okay to feel.
Feel your first heartbreak, and freaking cry if you need too.
Feel the first time you realize all of your dreams are coming true.
Feel the first time you fall in love.
Feel the pain of losing someone.
Maybe this will make absolutely no sense to some people, but for the others I hope it encourages you to enjoy life deeply. Life is full of choices, and sometimes you make them, and sometimes they make you. It’s your choice to pick.
