Bottled-up emotions.. That’s the worst punishment we can give ourselves. It starts with the feeling of jealousy, grows with inferiority complex and finally all these unwanted emotions bottle-up and turns into our worst nightmare. Have you compared yourself with someone? Oh come on. We do it daily or at least once in a while. Occasional comparison is fine, but it becomes a problem when you get obsessed with it. It pushes you to a point where you don’t like yourself. What good will it do to you or to anyone around you for that matter?
I was thinking about why people tend to keep their feelings within themselves. May be they think being emotional is a weakness and they want others to think that they are very strong. In the past they might have let out their feelings and it did not go well. How we should be should never be determined for the convenience of others. People around you will hardly spend anytime talking or even thinking about you. So why make decisions that involve their thoughts? Suppressing your feelings will force you to vent it out in other ways like drinking, smoking or anything you will never think of when you are normal and happy. It’s medically proven that many heart attacks are due to this pressure inside you. Why weaken yourself for the sake of what others will think about you? The world is judgmental. You just need to learn to not give a damn.
It’s very easy to give an advise. But it’s very difficult to follow it. I won’t say I have never bottled-up my feelings. But at one point I realized that it’s of no use to do such a stupid thing. I started to let go of myself. I felt way lighter and happier. So these days I make it a point to be me. Hope you liked my post. Do comment your views. 🙂 🙂
