Our emotions can lead us to places we often fear to tread by our own volition. Our emotions, thoughts and feelings are often signposts for what we will become, our emotions want to be expressed without fear of judgment and once truly expressed it allows you as a person to become a better and stronger version of yourself that can see a lot clearly what you want out of life. If we choose the alternative to expression, which is suppression we face becoming what we fear and risk losing control of ourselves. As the longer we suppress our true feelings the more bitter and negative our own feelings towards ourselves will become and we become a more bitter and cynical person as a result. It’s better to tread our ways to an uncomfortable place ourselves by choice, rather than letting the emotions bottle up and lead us to a dramatic confrontation of our own inner insecurities. Who can accept us if we are truly open and honest about our feel? Mainly only those who care for us will be able to accept us, but we may be surprised how supportive strangers may be as well. Everyone who judges you negatively is just a critic with no understanding of your life and history, so it’s better to live for the ones you love rather than those bitter lonely critics. We are all human, experiencing similar feelings as each other. The sooner we admit that, the better we will all be for it.
Over controlled emotions are just as unnerving to one’s self as unrestrained emotions, but their effects occur unseen internally in the body, while unrestrained emotions often lead to an outward physical expression. The latter gives others an opportunity to take note of your feelings, the other leaves you to sort it out….or not, by yourself. If you go it alone always source new arguments for and against your current emotional state. As we can be our own worst enemies who can’t see our own forest of feelings, behind our biggest tree of discontent at times. Don’t just believe yourself just because it seems the easiest, instead believe you can override any part of yourself if you so desired. Don’t be ruled by one thing within you, rather rule everything within you.
Loneliness is a possessive emotion, it thrives in the absence of felt love, even if that lonely person is surrounded by people that love them, if that love is never strategically expressed, meaningfully & on purpose in every day life, that love may never truly be felt, it may not be seen as a reality to that lonely person, because if that love is only expressed in times of distresses they likely will not believe it, in other words that love you think you have for them may fall on deaf ears, in the time of their need. Then you’ll regret it. So express love at any & everytime. Don’t wait until they’re broken until you express it.
For Each A Role.
Fear can be a form of protection. Which tells you to stay clear from things that may hurt you.
Or it can be a form of captivity, restricting your movement & thoughts, either way each fear we have has shaped who we are today. It may also be helpful to view our fears as having a role in finding our freedom and also that sometimes our roles may be found just behind our fears. So be open to change and to challenge yourself.
Free Expression Affects Reality.
Finding out what you fear is quite a challenge and that journey can reveal so much that you may struggle to persist exploring. Even so, I think the more we can express of our hearts, the more reality becomes changeable to us. Our fears can make us dreamers, instead of achievers of our desires. Thinking about doing great things is noble, just so long as it leads to action. We can easily choose to escape to our dreams, imagining that we have the strength, the courage and the will to do it, yet we grow complacent with our dreams and treat them as a form of escapism from reality, a dream with only good consequences and no sense of responsibility.
So inspire Action with your thoughts, don’t just dream. Work out your fears, as in doing so, you may work out important things about your identity & passions, which have been hidden in places you may be letting fear overwhelm & distort. Sometimes facing fear is the only way to begin to see things clearly. I’ve noticed that once a fear has been acknowledged and eventually overcome, which has influenced you a lot(in a captive sort of way), you sense a new confidence and understanding of yourself. So be brave.
