It would seem that a lot of us are conditioned to believe emotion should be contained; and being ‘over sensitive’ is seemingly a punishable offence. With this in mind, it’s no wonder that some of us are scared to feel human. If we feel it, we will usually act it, and some people don’t take kindly to showing true and raw emotion.
The best policy for them, is a zero tolerance policy, meaning, in a nutshell, don’t stand for it, be yourself quirky self no matter what.
To be able to laugh, to dance, to sing, to cry, are amazing gifts that are full of emotion and individual expression. Never give up that individually for anyone. You are super amazing just as you are. It’s okay to be human. It’s okay to be sensitive and emotional. It means you care, you feel, and you are alive. Those are amazing qualities to have and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Don’t be afraid to be emotional and to let your emotions out. There is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, being emotional, can be good for you.
When you feel an emotion, but keep it locked inside you, that is in effect, exactly what you are doing. You are embedding it deep within your soul, and that is no good for anyone.
If you talk whilst angry, it’s not good, but sometimes being angry, in the moment, gets the feeling of anger out and you can calm down quickly. Notice, I said talk.
If you need to scream, scream, just try not to scream at someone. At worse, they will never speak to you again, at best, you will need to apologise. Try saying – I feel angry right now.
If you love someone and wished you didn’t anymore, by fighting it and giving yourself a hard time about it, the feelings of love and longing for that person, can intensify and linger. In order to free yourself from the feeling of love, you must first accept that you do love, by allowing yourself to feel it, however difficult and horrid that may be.
If life is getting you down and you feel like crying, just do it. By holding your tears in, you can’t get them out and no good feelings can get in.
Allowing yourself to feel negative emotions, in the moment, such as pain, anger, hurt or grief, enables you to get over them faster and feel better quicker.
Of course, being emotional can be a positive experience. It can help you to feel other’s pain; to empathise and sympathise. It can facilitate a deep and meaningful existence and relationship with others.
Being emotional can be fantastic for a career in writing, because it lets you to get into the mind, soul and spirit, of your characters, so they can lead you to tell their story.
Being emotional, makes us human and that’s a fantastic thing.
So next time someone says to you – you are so emotional. Take it as a compliment. Say, I know it’s great. It’s wonderful to feel alive and be able to connect with others in a profound way. Don’t run from your emotions, but embrace them.
Embrace every quirky thing about you and remember how being emotional, can be good for you.
I am off to London tomorrow with my cousin, and staying overnight. Then we are off to Disneyland Paris for 3 days, from the 1st-3rd of October. Staying overnight in London again on the 3rd. We have got a ton of excitement coming our way, and a lot of energy driven things to do. I am extremely excited. It’s the first holiday I have had in 3 years that won’t involve any work.
Therefore, my aim is to be completely work free and I won’t be able to answer your comments or check in with you, until after my holiday.
Bon voyage for now. For the continued journey of your life. I will see you when I get back.
Don’t let life cycle by, take action now, to fufil your dreams.
Each and every second of life that passes us by, is a second gone forever.
Ask yourself this question. If you only had 24 hours left to live, how would you spend that time and who with?
Can you honestly say that you have lived your life, in a way which is authentic to you?
Can you honestly say that you have achieved everything in your life, that you have ever wanted to achieve?
Have you got:
● The right job for you?
● The right lifestyle for you?
● The right environment for you?
● The right life partner for you?
● The right you, for you?
Don’t let life cycle by. A cycle is a cycle for a reason. It’s round and continuous. But if you get on the wrong cycle path, you can stop yourself from achieving everything you have ever wanted in life.
Sometimes taking detours, or following different paths and breaking cycles, is actually what you need to succeed in every aspect of your life. Only then, can you make informed decisions as to what’s right and feels geat for you.
I took these photos on Thursday 11th of September, as The Tour of Britain cycled past the building where I work in my day job.
Don’t put your life in a box. Learn, develop and grow your way to success and happiness.
When we go with what feels good, that’s great, and so we should. The world is huge, with far reaching possibilities and sometimes we may need to get out of our comfort zone, get out of our box of life that we have either placed ourself in, or been forced into, in order for new opportunities to come our way.
By putting your life in a box, you are shutting out the outside world, and for every potential new great experience to happen.
Boxes are rigid, strong, and can contain many amazing things. You don’t need a box to give you those things, those can be your own personal qualities. You don’t need a box to qualify your existence, look into yourself for those. If you have those qualities as the essence of your soul, you are free to discover the wonders of outside of those box restrictions, to have a more deep and meaningful existence.
The word rigid can have different meanings. If you put your life in a box and remain rigid that you are not letting anything or anyone into your life, you will never get new ideas, fresh perspective or learn new concepts and ideas. These are essential to living rather than existing. If you have a rigid personality, it can also mean you have a backbone. That you are steadfast, strong, reliable and dependable. Those are awesome qualities to have.
Remember, you are amazing and beautiful just as you are. No one should put you in a box and crush you. You are quirky, every characteristic of you, makes up who you are. Sure, if you are not happy with the you, you see, then change, but never change for anyone. If someone tells you that you are not good at something or you have a weakness, that’s their box that they have placed you in, not your own. Don’t put your life in a box, but rather create the box that you would like to be in for yourself. Then knock those cardboard walls down until you stand there with your naked personality for all to see, having absorbed the strength and uniqueness of being wonderful you.
