Sometimes in life people are not going to agree with you, shocker right.
They may think you are wrong or even at times out of your mind, but hey ho thats life and that’s what makes this world an interesting place.
There is a big difference though between expressing your difference of opinion and being arrogant and damn rude.
The crazy thing is when I ask for a little respect I get accused of being emotional.
What the heck!
You know those pesky little things called emotions, they have the cheek to raise their heads now and again just to cause trouble. I’m beginning to think that these things which allow us to experience the world in technicolor are becoming unacceptable in today’s society.
When being called “emotional” as an insult or when people expect you to pretend you are ok when you are not.
Our emotions are incredible things and I for one will not apologise for having them.
Emotions allow me to laugh until my stomach hurts, to feel joy and happiness.
When my heart is broken and sadness overwhelms, crying is a freedom that allows my soul to breathe.
They allow me love and to feel safe.
To experience the highs and lows of life.
Acknowledging our emotions isn’t always easy, sometimes it is human nature to want to protect ourselves from pain. Still something I have learned the hard way is that hiding doesn’t work, somehow our hearts have to be and our emotions have to be free.
Emotions can be so powerful, they can inspire, encourage and cause direct action and I will not be made to feel guilty or pathetic for having them.
So I’m putting it out there right now, to you all.
A call to action, no more trying to be someone you are not.
Stop pretending you are ok when you aren’t.
Stop allowing anyone to make you feel ashamed of your emotions
As for myself, I can choose who is in my life and who isn’t and if people do not respect me well they can move along. I’ve learned the hard way that life is to precious to ever let anyone make you feel worthless.
I am open for healthy debate but if you don’t like the way I am or just don’t want to show me respect, then simply delete my name from your page, book etc and have a wonderful life.
I won’t apologise for standing up for respect and kindness and I will never apologise for being emotional.
Emotions are awesome.
One thought on “How dare I be emotional?”
I hear this. Embracing emotions is hard and something that should be actively encouraged, not used as a way to attack someone.
