Emotions

Anger

Love

Fear

Sadness

Joy

Trust…

All of us have one thing in common, emotions. How’s that for an icebreaker? Have you ever been afraid? happy? heartbroken? sad? We all have, more so than others, but we have experienced different emotions nonetheless. Being able to feel emotions are not a bad thing, even though we might think so at times. They help us vent and recover from expected and unexpected events in our life. I’ll speak for myself, but after a good cry, I feel like I can rule the world. When I feel sad, I feel like locking myself away for eternity; however, those moments help me have a closer look at my life and make changes if I must. I’m not saying I like those emotions, but I try to get rid of them as soon as possible. While emotions like ‘fear’ and ‘sadness’ are often unexpected, you can turn them into a positive and conquer them.

Do you ever feel like locking away certain feelings? I know I do. Sometimes I still lock them away, either due to embarrassment or fear of feeling vulnerable. But, you see, you should not be afraid to share your emotions. Lock them away for a bit until you figure out what to do, but let them go at some point. When you put things away for a long time, you forget about them, but they’re still there. If you lock away say, anger, it will consume you and will remind you that it’s there when you are at your most vulnerable. Take your time, of course, but face your emotions, because there are a lot of opportunities out there. Love and Joy are the easiest and most rewarding emotions, and I don’t mean ‘love’ only in a romantic way, but in friendship. It is true when they say, “Love conquers all”.

In the spirit of emotions, here’s a line full of friendship love for all my fellow bloggers:

Masks

We all the ability to hide secrets and express both, physically and emotionally, who we really are. We have 2 masks; one that covers our soul, and the other that covers our physique. Our comfort with locking our feelings and ambitions are reflected on these masks. We’re in control of what we perceive as assumptions of what others may want to find out about us. This prevents us from sharing what they want to know; just us, and the fact we don’t live where the grass the greener.

There are times when we are comfortable sharing what’s behind our masks, but once we find the right person to share it with, it becomes easier to unveil our true self. One must remember, those who who came into your life to bring out the best in you, have already unveiled your mystery, not because they secretly dug out your locked memories, but because you (unaware of it) opened up to them. They stay by your side, because they accept who you are, and because they also wear these masks. Wearing these masks shouldn’t be visible to anyone but you, but what needs to be visible are your experiences behind them. It is easy to filter our approaches and thoughts, but it takes a master to represent ourselves naturally.
