meet emotion ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i often feel like i am too dramatic about things. i worry that i’m overly emotional, i worry that i overreact, i worry that i overthink. however, i’ve realized lately that a lot of people are like this. we’re all constantly in our heads but we’re all constantly trying to hide it from each other, scared to come off as annoying. we have all fooled ourselves and through this have formed society to drive us towards feeling constantly alone, like we can’t talk about our emotions with each other. we hide everything from each other now. it is rare that we are willing to actually be open with each other. i’ve started to recognize that guys may have it the worst out of all of us. men don’t necessarily hide their emotions just because they’re less emotional than women or because they don’t care. they hide it away because society makes them feel like they have to, just like the rest of us. we have caged ourselves and we have hidden our hearts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ we need to stop judging each other for being human. let people feel and let them talk about it. it’s unrealistic to think that people never feel sad or vulnerable or confused. it’s inhumane to make each other feel like we can only have these emotions behind closed doors. we should all be a support system for each other. we should be helping people climb out of their dark times and rise to be better. stop looking at these people as weak. in reality, the strongest of all of us are those who are willing to let their guard down and show emotion.
