Emotions are a mess.
I tend to stick all my feelings in a box and hide them away from myself, as if having feelings makes me weak. The pain, the anger, it’s all in stored away. Every once in awhile, I’m faced with an emotion so strong, I crack. “If I don’t hold the waters back, the dam is gonna crack and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna drown.”
Why are we so afraid to feel? Emotions aren’t a weakness. Emotions are what make us human beings. We should deal with our emotions as they come, instead of tucking them away. Eventually, they’ll start piling up until they’re is no where left to hide them and you’re left with this awful feeling, like they’re just ripping you at the seams.
We forget how good we feel when we release our emotions. There’s a certain freedom that comes when you finally let out your feelings. It’s almost as if we don’t have to hide behind this mask that we created. We hide our feelings thinking that we’re taking control, but we’re not. Emotions are a mess, and hiding them is like hiding a ticking time bomb. You’ll never know when it’s going to blow up, but you can be assured that one day it will.
