Emotions. I would argue they have to be one of the most powerful phenomena in the world. They have no pattern, no presence as such, they are entirely illogical most of the time.
I used to cry all the time, and why? Well you tell me. Because someone was nasty, because someone was kind, because I felt lost, because I was found.
Think about how many people you see everyday. The friends and family, and the strangers you pass on the street, all on your own paths, only joined by these brief encounters. How many do you walk past and really see? Does it not overwhelm you that so many people you will see in your day are actually unable to express their emotion.
Hands up if you’ve ever smiled when inside you want everything to just go away, so you can be alone and cry until your soul aches.
Hands up if you’ve ever pretended to be upset to get something from someone.
Hands up if you’ve ever faked an orgasm because you didn’t want to hurt your partners feelings.
Tough ain’t it, emotions are these overpowering ‘sixth senses’ we all have and yet despite millions of years of evolution, we’re all still too stunted to express anything. Of course many will blame society, but society can only push a person so far, you would not be just another conformer unless somewhere subconsciously that’s what you always wanted to be.
I’m not saying we should all gallavant around crying and giggling and frowning, willy nilly, that is not logical either, and would most likely end up in tears (excuse the pun) I simply ask this one thing of you, the people of this planet, just promise me, you’ll be honest about your emotions with yourself. If you want to smile because today has been the best day of your life, then feel that happiness, let it pulsate through your body, your heart, your mind. Let it take over you. And if you want to scream and cry and shout , and you feel so angry and hurt with the world, then let that overwhelm you also, embrace all the anxiety, and then show it whose the fucking boss.
It just upsets me to think we could all be passing through life and not experienceing enough of how it really makes us feel.
And please, one last thing, if you keep everything else pent up inside, please do not keep love in. Let it out, spread it, tell someone today that you love them. It could change someones world.
