Hey Dreamers! It feels good to be back! I know that it doesn’t seem like I was gone, but the last two posts were scheduled, because I was busy with this year’s Spelling Bee. I didn’t win, but it wasn’t a disaster like last time. And one of my good friends won! So, I’m really happy for her. Now, on to today’s post. This post might contradict my last rant which was about Optimism + Being Positive .
Today, I wanted to talk about why it’s okay to feel sad or angry sometimes. I see a lot of quotes on the internet that say “Keep Smiling” , and “Be Happy”, and stuff like that. But, the thing is, that it’s not mentally or physically possible to be happy al the time. While it is important to be positive and be optimistic, it is also important to be upset sometimes.
Sometimes, you need to shout or cry, to get what you’re feeling out. People will tell you to soak up your tears and they’ll tell you that crying won’t change anything. And it won’t, crying won’t change anything. But it will help. If someone tells you not to cry, or you tell yourself not to cry, remember that you are a human being. If you need to have a meltdown, it’s okay. Your life will not always be the best, and sometimes you just need a meltdown.
The last reason, I wanted to talk about was that, if you don’t show your emotions, you will bottle them up. You’ll dwell on it. And you’ll do it every. single. time. that you get hurt. And one day, that bottle will crack and your emotions will burst out. You might ending up saying things that you’ll regret and it will be a lot more painful. Maybe, if you let yourself cry or shout, it will hurt less. And once you’re done crying, you will feel better and you won’t dwell on it.
While it’s okay to be sad, don’t dwell on things. Bad things will always pass away. Cry, cry all you want. But never give up.
