Feelings

Feeling (Noun):
  1. An emotional state or reaction.
2. An idea or belief, especially a vague or irrational one.

Feeling (Adjective):
1. Showing emotion or sensitivity.

No one has the right to tell you how you should or shouldn’t feel about anything in life. Ever.

It doesn’t matter if you have quite literally cried over spilt milk or you don’t react to something so crazy that everyone else is getting angry about. The way you feel is completely personal to you. Some people will get mad and tell someone to fuck off when they’re rude, some will suck it up and then go home to cry later and some may just not even react at all. 

Everyone will have their own opinion on how they think you should feel and react to things in life but no one has the right to put you down for feeling and reacting to such things in the way you do. Do not under any circumstances let anyone make you feel shitty for getting upset over things that they claim wouldn’t faze them or vice versa.

Everyone experiences the world and the things that happen to them differently. Everyone experiences overwhelming emotions at some point in their life. That’s what makes it so beautiful. That someone could feel that powerfully. They feel that strongly about something in their life. That they will fight to have their feelings heard. That’s what makes human connections so special. The fact that someone may not feel hurt and upset the way you do but that they try to understand and guide you into dealing with such emotions. They may help you to see things in a different light, a bigger picture or maybe just to sit and listen. To accept that what you’re saying in that moment in time is exactly how you feel and that won’t change. Not for them, not for anyone. Because your feelings are yours. Your emotions are yours. No one can take that away from you. 

So, if you want to cry because you missed the bus or you want to snap your pen in anger because it’s run out of ink or maybe you want to stand up and shout about how much you love and adore someone, do it. Don’t think twice. Don’t regret. Don’t let anyone tell you how you should feel or react. 

Do what you feel and live unapologetically. You are you. You feel what you do and no one can ever take that away from you.
