Emotion(s) AtoZChallenge

While thinking about the word ‘emotion(s)’, I look at my life and say “what an interesting life you have live”.

Those who know me can tell you the number of times I have showcased my emotions, in particular tears.

Some people who get to know me think am emotionless, and I often ask myself the following questions:
– Is it because these people don’t see me cry? Or
– Is it because they don’t really know the person I am?
As time passes, we all evolve as individuals, grow and mature into being human beings.

As a 20 something year old lady, I could count the number of times I have cried in public. By public, I mean in the midst of one or more people.
My tears rarely come out in public but rather in private, that is in the comfort of my home.
I will often cry in public only when something really hurts me and goes right into my bones.

A friend of mine recently told me that she has never seen me filled with emotions and wonders how i behave when i am in love. Hahahahah, I told her to closely watch me and really get to know me.

Just like some individuals, I would like to experience tears of joy, sadness at anytime and get to explore my emotions in the moment. However, I have come to understand that people are different and as a result experience life differently.

Often than not, showing emotions in public makes us feel vulnerable and weak and as a result often identified as weird. As a result, i practiced and developed resilience over the years to protect myself.

In the end we should aim to protect ourselves😀 and be open minded.

  1. Oh, through all your years, you young whippersnapper. Just kidding. My father never cried while I watched. I remember vividly his crying during the movie The Rose (I think that was the title) As he aged, he cried more often. There is nothing wrong with showing your emotions, it shows you’re human. That being said, anger is an emotion that needs to be controlled. You have expressed great thought.
