The very fact that people think that being practical and being emotional are two opposite things is a very sad reality these days. To be human is to be emotional, because humans are surviving and thriving because of our emotions, only a dead human is not emotional.
Often it is talked about today to be expressive, that it is okay to cry, but when it comes to us do we even do that? When we are actually in the middle of the ocean, do we know the way out? or why can’t be accept that we do need a boat sometimes from others. That boat is help, we do tend to lend a hand sometimes to someone but often we find ourselves in a weak spot and we think showing that to others will put us in a weak spot. But the paradox about vulnerability is that the more we are vulnerable the more powerful we become. Not to say that it should be used for manipulation. It should always be genuine but still, people have this thinking at the core that being vulnerable is being weak and it takes a lot of thinking and understanding to change this pattern.
Trust, I hear people saying that they have issues with that, or they can’t trust anyone. Yeah, there must have been a lot of valid reasons for them saying so and lot of bad experiences to reach that point of not trusting anyone. But trust is something that brings out the best in others. Through pure trust you can see what the person in front of you actually is and what they could become by having that trust. This in turns brings out the best in you, yes there is risk and a lot of emotional uncertainty but it’s a despair to not know the full potential of a relationship, that is not having complete trust in that bond. Yes, the risk is great, but the reward even more fruitful and worth it.
Finally, emotions are hard on us sometimes. They’re difficult to deal with when they turn negative, but even then, you can turn it into you advantage as growth always happens in uncomfortable times. That mere realization is enough to get you through bad times and make you a better human being and lets you celebrate good times to the fullest because everything is temporary. Always remember, ‘This too shall pass’ and use it to your advantage.
