Showing feelings is not a sign of weakness. People who have the courage to share their feelings are likely to have healthier, happier, and longer lasting relationships. That is why its important to understand the power of feelings.
So, look into my eyes and tell me what you see. Do you see a reckless girl? Do you dare see the tears that spread across my skin? Do you see all my losses or every time I have won? Do you see my nightmares, my fears or do you see how I have overcooked them?
If you dare to touch my hand, will you feel my softness? Tell me the truth even if it hurts: do you see unflawed youth or do you see a broken child? Is there pain or do you think I’m untouched and wild?
If you look closely do you see that I’m screaming? I dare you to look into these eyes and peer into my soul.
The mask I wear was never there. I know that my emotions were here but now they’re gone, maybe they are forever lost. Lost forever.
Sometimes I wish in the starry night that time could be rewinded. Under the stars with my fingers crossed as I look to the sky I fly. Every star that sines and twinkles in the Milky Way, walks with me in a never ending line.
As I wandered lonely as a cloud I saw how beside the lake and beneath the trees the flowers were fluttering and dancing in the breeze. I write down all the words, every single one full aware that they are mine, they belong to me and no one else.
As I soar through the clouds it would be best if you could hold my hand and never look down. So, as I have come to learn, people my write and spread twisted lies about me. The can through me to the ground but like the dust I will rise again and again.
We, all of you and I, come crashing down and find ourselves falling into nothingness. Sometimes our wishes are shattered. Then, suddenly, reality comes back keeping us stuck.
The truth is that we all cry and we are all allowed to do so. In no way “crying” or being sad entails that someone is being “weak” or anything like that.
I feel like I’m constantly being pushed, pushed near the edge. I believe that we all have a purpose in life, some towards the light and some purpose towards the dark. Locked in a cell, frozen at night and living in constant fright.
Every person has an innate desire to connect with others in some kind of way. That’s how we function, that is how we are made up. That’s how we can make sense of who we are and that’s how we make sense of the world as well as other people around us. That is why it is essential that we share our stories and we listen to each other’s stories. That is why it is important that we learn to connect with others.
I don’t know why we make such a fuss of being emotional, as if that was a mistake. We need to stop making people retain their feelings and emotions. If someone cries, let them cry.
We need to stop teaching our children that having feelings and expressing them is only for girls or that it’s for “the weak”. We have to learn to connect with one another.
Our emotions are like our internal compass. This allows us to figure out what we do and don’t want in life.
We need to be able to recognise when we have an emotion, know what it is and know what it is trying to tell us. If we are able to listen to our feelings and respond to them, we are more likely to gravitate towards people who make us feel good about ourselves.
The thing is that if we struggle to recognise when we are feeling unhappy, this can then lead to unhappy thoughts.
It is in the ability to empathize that we show true insight. We are the sum of experiences. We have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down a different road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. The tiniest choice that we make reverberates throughout the entire universe.
