Fucking emotions.

Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. It's a sign that you have a big heart and that you aren't afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength. 




"Control your emotions." "Don't let it show." "Showing emotions is showing weakness." 

How often do I hear these sentences. How often do we not show, how we really feel, because we are scared. Scared, that it could be inappropriate or show weakness. How often do we put on a fake smile, but feel absolutely shit inside? 

WHY? Why the fuck do we do that? And why is this strange behavior so totally normal? 

When we look at kids, we don't see anything of that sort. Kids cry and scream, when they are sad and they laugh loud, when they are happy. It's as simple as that! But why do we grown-ups have to complicate everything? Why do we overthink each single emotion we show? 

"Emotions make us human. Denying them makes us beasts." - Viktoria Klein.

We are trying to "stay strong", when we get bad news and we are so desperately trying to keep up that perfect image, but inside we can literally feel the pain in our chest and we would love to burst into tears, but we can't. We want to suppress our laughter, when we are in a quiet bus, because everyone could look at us in a weird way. We are not telling our loved ones often enough how much we adore them, cause it could seem clingy. 

And wouldn't the world be easier, if we acted a little more like kids sometimes...

Telling someone you like how nice they look today, laughing loud at jokes (most strangers will actually join in the laughter - it's addicting) and crying our eyes out if we are sad. 
You will feel so much better afterwards!

What's the worst thing that could happen? 
That your friends and family will turn away from you, because you show your true emotions???
Those who are important won't care about it, and those who care are not important!

George Lucas once said: "We are all living in cages with the doors wide open." 
So why not just break out of this cramped cold place into a creative, emotional and vibrant live! 

Namaste,
Hannah
