“To be human is a problem and the problem expresses itself in anguish.” -Abraham Joshua Heschel
Ever have those moments when so much emotion binds itself inside you? Possibly from suppressing feelings you have due to the negative side effects you know those feelings have on those around you so you tell yourself that although you might feel better now, you can ultimately have others stray away from you simply because they don’t understand you or don’t like the energy you put out there.
Cynical as it sounds, negative energy is something very inevitable in my life and maybe yours too. Every time I feel negative, I fear, I resent, I scream, I snap, and then finally I cry. It’s human nature, we’re just fleshy beings that have this thing called feelings.
I’m pretty sure aliens would probably be just as confused as to how we managed to live as much as we do. But never fear! It’s always okay to let them show. Always.
I understand personally that it’s kind of embarrassing when you cry in front of someone you really don’t know that well because you feel they might judge you or whatever else but but but (yes this was intentional) maybe if they do judge you, there aren’t worth having in your life. Sometimes you have to remember your own opinions and your own views and you as a person are important too.
If you’re like me, you tend to value too much on what everyone around you needs instead of your own and like I’ve told myself continuously, if you think expressing your thoughts, opinions, or views are selfish then be selfish.
Just don’t be greedy. This is just me saying don’t take someone else’s happiness in the process. But it’s almost that time of year: graduations, warm beaches, watermelons, and Popsicles. That’s all you need to worry about right now, make time for the most important person in your life. You.
