Why do we suppress when we need to express?
Why are we ashamed to express our own emotions?
Why do we need to think twice before expressing?
People, especially guys think that crying is equal to being weak. Who said that? Why can’t guys cry? It is of utmost important to realize your emotions as and when you feel them. You feel like crying? Grab a bucket and cry your eyes out. You feel like laughing? No one is stopping you to laugh your ass out and fall on the floor. You feel like telling that one person that you love them? Walk up to them with your head held high and confess. You feel like sleeping? Pounce on that comfortable bed/couch/chair and just doze off. You want to eat? Hog on. You feel excited about something? Jump around like a lunatic person.
Do anything but suppress your emotions. Express as much as you can, because if you don’t who will? Why are we always asked to suppress our anger? Why can’t we just let it out once and for all and be done with it? Things would be so much better if we wouldn’t think twice before saying anything. It would be so much better if we wouldn’t delete the message that we had typed but rather just hit the send button. It would be so much better if we would just say each and everything that comes to our mind during a conversation and the words wouldn’t just be like the other words, lost in our head.
Our parents always teach us to respect our elders, which also means not to raise your voice at them, because hey, that’s disrespectful. So, if I am having some issues with my father, can’t I even argue? Wouldn’t that lead to further misunderstandings between us? Yeah, but hey you gotta respect them, right? Who cares if you aren’t expressing yourself clearly because of that, it is okay. Let’s not fall for all these daily life traps, let’s focus on improving ourselves by expressing better. Do you miss someone and want them back in your life, but your ego is coming in your way? Then kick your ego aside, pick up that phone and text that person! It is as easy as that.
Express, don’t suppress!
