Being quiet is not always a good idea, showing your true emotions is. Nobody knows how you feel if you don’t speak for yourself. As Johnny Depp said, “People who cry are not weak. They are just tired of being strong.” If you cry, you’re not a kid. If you get angry, you’re not a psycho. If you are sorry for something then you’re not a loser. Expressing your true emotions is not at all wrong.
Hey there! I’m Saumya from Draw-Write-Inspire, a teen blogger from India! On my blog, I write poems, stories, posts about music, lifestyle and my life experiences. I’m so glad to be here on Olivia Lucie Blake. We are guest posting on each other’s blogs and don’t forget to check her post on my blog which I have linked below. I’m grateful to Olivia for giving me this opportunity.
PEOPLE WILL MISUNDERSTAND YOU
We all face problems in our life that seem to be never-ending. We either get bullied by someone, get treated wrongly or it can be as simple as not being able to complete your work. If you don’t talk about the issues you are facing, finding solutions can be hard.
Let me take the example of a person who is unable to finish his homework on time due to a reason. If he goes and tells his teacher about this, the teacher might extend the submission dates. But if he doesn’t, he is going to stay up all night completing it and if is not able to, he will get scolded.

YOU MIGHT END UP WITH A ‘I WISH I HAD DONE THAT’ MOMENT
It’s obvious if you don’t do what you feel like you will think about it the whole day. If you are mad at someone and you still let him do what they have been doing, you aren’t going be happy. In fact the situation will get worse.
I personally believe that if you don’t have the courage to tell it to the person itself, at least tell someone you trust. That can at least make things better for you since you’ll have someone who supports you.

CRYING YOUR HEART OUT IS FINE
You know what they say, “Crying cleanses your heart.” It really does. Just like if there’s a stain on cloth you wash it, a wound in your heart can get better by crying out. Like I mentioned in the beginning, crying doesn’t make you a loser. Nobody knows what you have gone through or what’s going on in your mind.
Just ignore them. They are nobody to judge or say what you can and what you cannot do. I am not asking you to cry about every small thing but if there’s something that is making your head heavy, hug a friend tightly and tell him/her everything. You will feel better.

YOU’LL REGRET IT
If you don’t say something you’ll keep thinking about things you’re missing, things you wish you could’ve said or done. It’s only because you were afraid to say it then that you are regretting it now. Maybe not saying it that time might have ended up the argument but it definitely won’t help you to find a solution.
Hiding truth is also a part of not sharing emotions and you might end up losing a close person. I remember when one of my friends had lied to me for over a year. I found out about her big secret a year later. She doesn’t show she regrets it but I know deep down she thinks things could have been better if she could have just told me about it.

Have you ever had a moment when you regretted not sharing your true emotions? Do you relate to any of these?
Things sometimes get worse if you say and do what you want to but in the end, you are just happy because of it. Sharing your true feelings always can be harmful as well. Being an individual, we all should be able to decide for ourselves as to when is the right time and when it’s not.

Thank you so much Olivia for this opportunity. I had a great experience working with you!! I’m glad I got this chance! 💝
Thank you so much to you too:)
Feeling is great!! It’s great to let yourself feel the emotions you do and do what makes you happy.
It really is. I think we underestimate how good it can be for us!
I believe the emotions shouldn’t be kept pent up, they should be expressed. It’s okay to rant, get angry, cry and share one’s opinion. And sure, I’ve had a moment where I regretted not sharing my true emotions. It’s all in the past now. Over time, I’ve learnt how to truly express myself and my emotions.
Thanks for sharing this.🤗😊

It’s an amazing post, Olivia! I would say, the list of feelings you have mentioned are quite relatable to many who are not able to open up themselves on front of others due to obvious reasons! But it’s always better to let the things out and share it, it helps the individual to feel light! Thank you so much for sharing this!
It’s so true that crying can be really cleansing and healing.
